About the Color (Pelleas)
This colorway is pretty much the exact shade a man’s face turns to when he’s in a jealous rage. A rich rosy pink with undertones of jealous orange, this colorway is sure to bring passion to your next project!
The Story Behind the Colorway Name
Pelleas was a knight of the Round Table and was in love with Ettard. He asked Gawain to help him woo Ettard. Unfortunately, Gawain's wooing didn't work for Pelleas (as Ettard did not love Pelleas), but it did work for Gawain (as he and Ettard shared a bed).

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).
Shipping is free within the U.S. 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.
