    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:

        Madelinetosh yarns are pretty much the perfect yarn. The dye and colors are so vividly gorgeous, they are soft, easy to knit with, perfectly spun and plied, and make a beautiful fabric. I made a cap for my husband with my yarn and he loves it.

        Comments about Madelinetosh Tosh Vintage:

        With hand dyed yarns I expect variations from the color shown. However, I ordered the color Jasper for a baby shower gift. Jasper is shown as a lighter green tint. The yarn I received was a dark, dull, green. Not appropriate for a baby gift. Although I used the yarn on another project and loved it, I was disappointed in the VERY different color I received. If a big color variation doesn't bother you you will probably give this yarn a 5.

          Comments about Madelinetosh Tosh Vintage:

          I love MadTosh yarns - I probably use them in at least half of my projects. This is my first time knitting with the Vintage base. It's not as soft as other Tosh yarns, but that's ok because it seems sturdy...good for a man sweater. The major downside I've found with this yarn is there are an average of about 2 breaks in the yarn per skein (spliced together by the manufacturer, but hard and nobby, so I end up re-splicing with a Russian join). I haven't finished the project yet, so can't attest to final drape after blocking, but it doesn't seem to pill and creates a pleasant fabric.

              Have purchased this yarn several times in several places. It is easy to work with, stitch definition is great, colors are pretty and it is soft. Made several things...footie slippers for a friend and a little hat for my nephew's baby both as Christmas gifts.
              Would absolutely recommend and certainly purchase again.

              Tosh Vintage has become my favorite worsted weight yarn. It is smooth, soft, machine washable and has a lovely subtle scent.
              What's not to like? Well, their colors are unpredictable. I bought two skeins of "Dachshund", for example, which looked like it had sand, caramel, golden brown with touches of charcoal. It was all that - plus lavendar, which I had not expected. It wasn't my first surprise with Vintage colors, but it was my first disappointment.
