      Because this is a hand-dyed yarn the colors may vary from the images online. I strongly recommend calling and talking to a representative before purchacing. The pattern I used needed two contrasting colors. My first order did not work because I relied on what I saw online. I then called and they were very helpful in coordinating what I needed.

      This was used for a gift sweater for a 4-year-old girl. I used Tosh's own Tea Leaves pattern. The colorway Fragrant was girly without being Barbie-ish, and the variegation worked well in the field of stockinette. The sweater has a pleasant sheen. Next time for a child I might choose a thinner yarn but that's just a personal preference.

      The aspects that disappointed me: first, the dye does not penetrate the yarn. The core remains bright white, and when the exterior frays (which it did here and there, like on the buttonhole) the white is very visible. For that I deducted one star.

      Second, Tosh seems to turn knots into stiff lumps with some sort of hard cement glue. They're inflexible to knit, and sharp against the skin. I couldn't just knit those in. A regular knot would have been better because you can see it and plan where you'd want to join yarns in a given row. All balls had at least one knot and one ball had a few, at inconvenient places. That cost a second star.

      I'd still choose this yarn for another project; one where knots could be worked in nicely, and the pattern makes it easy to combine balls which may be dyed quite differently. I'd order way more yarn than necessary, so I could have enough of a particular shade (same colorway but different balls) if needed. I'd wind the yarn slowly to find the knots, and break the skein at those points.

      Used this yarn as weft in a woven scarf with a much thinner warp so that the hand dyed qualities of the yarn would shine through. Came out beautiful.

      I wish time between order and shipping had been faster.

      I have knit two baby blankets from this yarn, and am very pleased with the color, and softness. My only complaint is that the yarn splits easily during knitting, but if caught right away it is easily fixed.

        Comments about Madelinetosh Tosh Vintage:

        I currently have one glove and a hat on my needles. The Vintage yarn is a dream to knit: soft, yet dense enough to hold the hat shape; the dyed colors of the yarn adds interest and provides the Wow! factor; because of the cost per hank, the ample yardage is appreciated. I am very anxious to see the finished project! I do notice, occasionally the dye had not reached the middle of the yarn but not enough to take away from my using it. I plan to order more.

              Comments about Madelinetosh Tosh Vintage:

              I love this yarn, but --- the color is not even close to the picture. I had thought that this was going to be blue with slight grey undertones, instead it is darker and grey with hardly any blue tones at all. I did not return because it is lovey to knit with and it is very difficult to chose color without seeing the actual yarn.

              Delivery and Service was fine.
