Mordred in Uther
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 (Uther)
The light, pale grey of a bearded sage, this colorway is subtle yet strong and makes for an ideal neutral. It’s a cooler grey on the pale end of the color scale.
The Story Behind the Colorway Name
King Uther fell in love with Igraine, who was already married to one of Uther's men. Gorlois, her husband, hid Igraine in the fortress of Tintagel and proceeded to fight Uther. One night, Uther disguised himself as Gorlois (through Merlin's magic) and spent the night with Igraine--this resulted in the conception of Arthur. Igraine finds out that Gorlois had been killed shortly before the disguised Uther was with her. Uther marries Igraine, but Arthur is taken away to be raised by another family and does not know the history of his parentage.

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.
