I used this to make a sweater for my MIL. It is beautiful, soft, and seems like it should hold up well. I had to reknit the button band about four times and the yarn did not get worn and frayed like some do with repeated working. It did seem to grow quite a bit when I wet blocked it, but I put it in the dryer at low heat in a lingerie bag and it came out beautifully. The finished garment is quite fuzzy, however, and sheds like crazy. My colorway was Astrid gray and my black pants picked up the fuzz and looked like I had been holding a white cat. I'm worried that it will pill easily, given the fuzziness and other reviews.

I absolutely loved working with this yarn. Felt great, behaved very nicely. However, the sweater made with Pashmina began to pill with very little usage making the sweater look old and worn out. Loved working with this yarn, but for the price, would have expected it to tolerated being used, even a little!

    I haven't used this because I'm trying out the pattern with yarn from my stash before I risk this. It is deliciously soft and the colors are wonderful. I can't wait to try it.

      Comments about Madelinetosh Pashmina Worsted:

      This yarn is so beautiful and takes even the humblest project to the next level. Beginners take note! Your hand knit gifts in this yarn are sure to please. Don't wait til you're "expert" to buy this yarn. You DO have to be mindful when working with it that you don't let it split on you. That being said, my all-time favorite yarn is Malabrigo worsted, every bit as soft and gorgeous, but much less expensive.

            Comments about Madelinetosh Pashmina Worsted:

            I knit a lace hat. I knit it at a smaller gauge, because I wanted a warm hat, and lace is holey. It's fabulous. The Cove colorway matches the Cove colorway of A.S.A.P. I knit into a cowl apx 18 months ago.

            I am leary of knitting mittens, due to the cashmere content and my tendency to be tough on mittens, but otherwise I hope to knit with this yarn more in the future, where my budget allows.
