Mordred in Green Knight
About the Yarn Base (Mordred)
You want a yarn that will stand up to the everyday wear that goes along with socks or another high-wear item. Mordred is ready to meet every challenge head on, with a determination to succeed. The secret behind Mordred's victory is the BFL, or Bluefaced Leicester, wool, which is more durable than Merino (the wool typically used for socks). (Click here to learn more about BFL.)

About the Color (Green Knight)
This yarn evokes images of mythical beasts: dragons, monsters, trolls and more! It’s a blend of the darkest hunter green with hints of Kelly green and sage.
The Story Behind the Colorway Name
Sir Gawain and the Green Knight is my favorite medieval story. The Green Knight--who is completely green, from skin and hair to clothing--rides into Arthur's court and challenges the knights to a contest: anyone there can accept his axe and use it to strike a blow to the Green Knight. A year later, the Green Knight gets to return the blow. Gawain accepts the challenge and proceeds to cut off the Green Knight's head. But rather than killing the Green Knight, he picks up his head and rides back out of the court, telling Gawain that he'll see him next year. How will Gawain be able to receive the return blow without dying?.

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.
