    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.

      Fabulous yarn

      This yarn knits like butter...it feels so wonderful in your hands. But it only gets better when you have a sweater to wear that feels so soft, warm, and cuddly.

      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 got the Jasper, great color variation. Handles beautifully doesn't split good stitch definition good value since the skein is large I will be able to get 2 hats out of this. knits nicely on size 5 needles, but really is nicest on size 3. I will get this yarn again. This would be great for the Knitty "clapotis" shawl.

            If you like a warm and cozy feel to your garments this is the beat yarn for that. I made many cowls, none were as warm or comfortable to wear then the one I made with this yarn. With temperatures in the single digits I didn't expect any garment to keep me comfortable, but was pleasantly surprised by the warmth, and the soft feel of this yarn next to my neck, face and ears.

              I substituted this for another DK weight yarn in a vest - was very disappointed. Not a good match. This yarn is good for something that is not structured. It is soft and needs to be knitted into something that drapes. I will probably rip this out and maybe make a shawl.

                          I love all the Madelintosh yarns but this is one of the most versatile for sweaters and such in a heavier gauge than many of their yarns. The colors are wonderful and the end product is something to keep and treasure forever.

                            First, know that I never knit with wool. Never. I'm allergic to it, it makes my hands itch, and my eyes water and itch. But I had seen someone working with it at a knit club, and I was captivated by it and decided to brave it because of its beauty. This yarn is such a dream to work with, and I'm not having problems with allergies for some reason! It looks like it has its own light source and the stitch definition is unreal. I HIGHLY recommend it. I am making scarves primarily, but think this would knit up well into any accessories and sweaters as well. So soft!!

                              I used this for a sweater and loved it while I was knitting. Upon first wearing, the sweater pilled unmercifully. The color I used was charcoal I think. The sweater is lovely, color wonderful, but really, really pilly. If you don't like pills, don't use this yarn for a sweater.

                              I'm making a sweater with Rain Water, this yarn is amazingly soft and easy to work with, it has spoiled me for anything else! I would highly recommend it.
