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.)

The Story Behind the Colorway Name

In the forest, Balin meets with his brother Balan and Balan agrees to help with Balin's plan to defeat King Rience to get back into Arthur’s good graces. King Mark of Cornwall rides up with a group of knights, and he declares he will build a tomb in that spot for the dead couple. (Balin had killed a knight and his lady killed herself for grief.) Mark asks Balin for his name, but Balan tells Mark that he can call Balin The Knight with Two Swords.

Then Merlin arrives and prophesies about a great battle that will occur in the future at this spot between Lancelot and Tristan. Merlin also rebukes Balin for allowing the lady to kill herself. And Merlin has yet another prophecy—Balin will strike a blow to a true knight, which will bring great sorrow to three kingdoms for twelve years.

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

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.
