Madelinetosh Pashmina Worsted

The soft sheen of Pashmina yarn, in a worsted weight! Madelinetosh Pashmina Worsted is a touchable blend of merino wool, silk and cashmere (like the famous pashmina scarves), with a four-ply construction that knits or crochets up into a soft, drapey fabric. This gorgeous yarn is machine washable, and like all Madelinetosh yarns, Pashmina Worsted is hand-dyed in small batches.

Please note: Each skein of Madelinetosh Pashmina Worsted is unique. There are no dye lots and skeins may vary. The yarn color you receive may look different than the color pictured.

    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!

      Comments about Madelinetosh Pashmina Worsted:

      I've had knitters ask me why I would go to such an expense to knit with this yarn. The answer used to simply be the colors, but that has morphed into that it's such a luxury to knit with! This is one of those yarns that even if you are knitting something as a gift, the act of knitting is a gift to yourself! The drape is gorgeous, but the feel is spectacular!

      soft surface to the touch makes this appealing for garmwnts like the cowl I made. Not too tightly twisted, so I needed to be careful not to split yarn.

            I have used this yarn several times for scarves and cowls. The colors are beautiful and rich, and the color variations are lovely. I would follow the advice with the yarn to alternate skeins every other row if using more than one; the last order I received had a noticeable difference in color.

            Cons

            • A little fuzzy
            • Pricey
            • Slippery on needles

            Best Uses

            • Scarf Or Cowl

            Comments about Madelinetosh Pashmina Worsted:

            I have not washed the scarf I made with this yarn yet, but I have used MadTosh before and it grew quite a bit, both lengthwise and widthwise. I assume the same will happen with this scarf based on my earlier experience. The yarn is very soft and was easy on my hands. The yarn slipped off my needles several times, but the stitches didn't go anywhere because of the fuzziness of the yarn. The color is striking and evenly distributed throughout with no spots of dark or light color. Price is a bit high, but the yarn does contain a little cashmere. All in all, a very nice yarn.

            Service and delivery comments:

            Fast and secure, as always.

                  Comments about Madelinetosh Pashmina Worsted:

                  I am in the process of knitting a sweater with Tosh Pashmina, color Rainwater. Originally I started with Tosh Vintage, Rainwater, but as I continued to knit with it I decided that the yarn was too heavy for a longer sweater. I also thought that the Vintage was dull and without sheen. I reordered the same color in Pashimana and I was thrilled this time. The added silk gave these colors a beautiful sheen with touches of blues and grey. In addition, this yarn has a lovely drape and does not seem to have the heaviness of the Vintage. Both yarns are worsted weight but the Pashmina has a lighter weight feel.
