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.

    Buy it! You'll love it! Once Madelinetosh has slipped through your fingers, you will find it difficult to purchase any other yarns. No kidding. I've made hats using different weights and all of them have a unique look because of Madelinetosh yarns.
    Buy it! You'll love it!

        I am currently using on a wrap and I am enjoying the yarn as it knits smoothly and fast. There is ease of movement when knitting and I like the texture it is giving the piece. Most enjoyable.

        Comments about Madelinetosh Tosh Vintage:

        First time using Vintage, found it delightful - knits up neatly and with a good twist, it held the shape of the stitches well. Projects were cabled, came out beautifully. Colorways are wonderful as always. Two skeins were noticeably different in color, but blended well. Recommend using two at a time, alternating if doing a large project where dye lot matters. Color bled a bit in the blocking rinse, a slug of white vinegar in the rinse water solved that. Final products were absolutely beautiful, can not recommend this yarn highly enough.
