    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.

        This yarn knits beautifully, feels great, and the Dr. Zhivago colorway just glows - I don't usually go on and on about gray yarns but this stuff is gorgeous!

        I gave it 4 stars only because I don't know how it washes or wears yet.

            I just bought one of each of 3 colors to see what they looked like in person and they were so beautiful that I bought more of each of them. The colors on the web are good, but the richness of the yarn and the softness aren't so evident.

                  Comments about Madelinetosh Tosh Vintage:

                  How often does one find a yarn that matches the advertised hype in all respects? MV does.

                  I made a Fair Isle sweater for my wife. It matched everything I hoped, and exceeded anything I expected. Colors are Antler for main, Nebula and Lepidoptera for the small motifs, done on size 8 aluminum needles.

                  I found nothing to squawk about. The wool has a soft, sure feel while it slides into place, no splitting, no raveling, no bad spots in the hank. My wife wears the sweater every morning. The three colors carried along make it thick. She says it is warm when it counts, but not too warm to wear all day. And--always--uncommonly soft on the skin. What more could I ask? It is softer, and not anything like, Madelinetosh Chunky, except for the eye-catching colors. Vintage will be the long term favorite for most of my ideas. It is worth the cost.

                  Service and delivery comments:

                  Webs delivered the service I've come to expect and like. The stuff came in a tough, nearly indestructible package, not a flaky box like some outfits use, so I could be confident that it would be in the same shape as when it was packed.

                    Used this yarn as weft in a woven scarf with a much thinner warp so that the hand dyed qualities of the yarn would shine through. Came out beautiful.

                    I have knit two baby blankets from this yarn, and am very pleased with the color, and softness. My only complaint is that the yarn splits easily during knitting, but if caught right away it is easily fixed.
