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.

      Grab bags not worth it

      By Travelicious

        Comments about Madelinetosh Tosh Vintage:

        Vintage is one of my favourite yarns, so I splurged on a grab bag but was very disappointed when it arrived. The colours seem quite one-dimensional compared to usual and very flat, without the gorgeous sheen and variation I am used to. Also, they are not named so I am thinking they are rejects and wish they had been labelled as such. I have spied 2 knots so far, and haven't even wound the skeins yet.
        I will continue to buy Vintage, but only when I can select the colours, as very few of the 5 skeins matched what I requested. I would return it but I already had to pay duty to get it into Canada and don't want the hassle of sending it back and trying to get the duty refunded. Lesson learned!

            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?
