About the Color (Caerleon)
This pink-purple-grey color has random pink speckles (some skeins will have more speckles than others).
The Story Behind the Colorway Name
Caerleon is the location in Britain that Geoffrey of Monmouth in his History of the Kings of Britain claims as the site of Arthur's court, referred to later as Camelot. This was a real place with ruins that Geoffrey, who lived in the 12th century, would have known. Later excavations have reveals Roman buildings, including an amphitheater. Locals claimed it to be the origins of the Round Table (though no table would be there, the knights would have sat in a circular formation, facing one another).

About the Yarn from Round Table Yarns
The yarns from Round Table Yarns are dyed by hand in small dye lots so each skein receives special care and attention. Colorway names have been taken from the stories of King Arthur and the knights of the Round Table, and on the inside of each label, you can read the story of the inspiration behind the name (no story on Quest or Adventure colors).
Shipping is free within the United States and free for international orders over $100. The yarn is ready to ship in a muslin project bag for safe delivery and will arrive in your mailbox in a cheerful purple mailing envelope. Your yarn typically ships within 24 hours, often on the same day you place your order.
