I made a beautiful cowl with this yarn and it turned out beautifully. Colorway was perfect, knits up quickly, has a lot of stretch to it so the cowl can be worn close to the neck or drawn out to fall across the shoulders.

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.

      Comments about Madelinetosh Tosh Vintage:

      It's a nice enough yarn, but the hype is overblown. That's probably me being irritated at their attitude that dye lots are old school & useless, and it's a "feature" for the color to be completely unlike the picture, and if the name implies a color (such as Winter Wheat) the actual color of the yarn may or may not be anything like what is implied. It is soft, and knits up well enough, but the price is much higher than warranted. But when the color is what you expected or wanted, it can be rewarding, some of their colors are wonderful. This applies to the whole Madelinetosh line, not specifically Vintage. Two colors have worked out for me & inspired knitting projects, and two have been disappointing (returned one, gave the other away). Not a good average from someone who loves yarn, and will buy yarn because of a color or texture with no idea what I'll use it for. It takes a lot for me to utterly reject a yarn, but I'll steer clear of the Tosh pages. Webs has some really, really good stuff, why spend money on a yarn brand whose product is not that special?

        Comments about Madelinetosh Tosh Vintage:

        First, I must say, madelinetosh is my favorite yarn. I used it in DK, Chunky, Pashmina, and Light. Always was impressed with the quality and colorations. This is my first time buying Vintage. Made a hooded scarf for my dear sister in Spectrum. Her favorite color is blue. The color of yarn in person is much darker than on the website. But it is true for most pictures on the webs, unfortunately. I am used to it by now. The bigger problem is the coloring. It is more like painting over the yarn, meaning the color is not through and through the thread. I am a knitter with over 40 years experience, and this is the first time EVER I have to complain: this yarn splits! And since it is not colored throughly, the white fibers are sticking out here and there. First, I thought it was just some feather or something, and I tried to pull it out, and I just broke the thread. Had to undo several rows to connect the ends. The other problem is several nuts in each skane! They look and feel like glued up. One of those nuts just unraveled when my hooded scarf was almost done! It was too much to undo, do I just fixed the hole with a needle and a tread. I am very disappointed, and I will never ever hold Madelinetosh Vintage yarn in my hands!

          The most squishy, delicious yarn ever!! Knits fast, blocks beautifully. MadTosh yarns, from sock to bulk are fabulous. Just make sure you soak-some of the dye comes out, but not enough to effect the overall color.

          Service and delivery comments:

          Purchased in store, but every order from Webs has been perfect. The one time I called customer service, the person I spoke to was friendly and efficient, as is the staff in person always when I trek out there ( a very favorite road trip)!
