The royal tercel is seen as wise and worthy and is the one that it seems the formel should choose. He promises to always stay true to her and claims no one loves her more than he. Thus, the dependability of the worsted weight yarn, Lancelot (as well as Lancelot’s own love for Guenevere), reflects the love of this royal tercel for the formel. The cabled hearts stand true all on their own, with nothing to distract from them.
