About the Color (Horsa)
The first buds of spring; a touch of moss growing on a log; the eyes of a man overcome with envy. This yarn is a blend of springtime green with touches of yellow underneath, just waiting to be made into something fantastic.
The Story Behind the Colorway Name
Horsa and his brother Hengist were Germanic warlords who were invited to Britain by Vortigern, king in part of Britain, to help him fight against other invaders. After seeing that the British defenses were weak, the brothers decided they wanted to conquer Britain for themselves. This decision is often thought of as the start of the Anglo-Saxon invasion into Britain, which Arthur himself would fight when he becomes king.

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 colors).
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.
