    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:

      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.

      Comments about Madelinetosh Tosh Vintage:

      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.

            This was wonderful to knit. The color (opaline) was much darker and grayer than expected but that's always a risk when buying online. I still love it. Nice tight twist and not at all splitty, with gorgeous variations of color.

                  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.
