      I just received Filigree and the color, at least from my computer monitor, is exact. It's so rich and seems to knit up nice subtle shifts and not stripes. I have never knit with such thin yarn before, but plan to use this on size US3 needles in a standard knit, not lace pattern. So far the swatch looks good. To give you an idea, the thickness of this yarn could be compared to embroidery floss. Word of warning - if you don't have a yarn winder, be prepared to spend 2 hours winding the hank into a ball.

      I am so upset with this yarn... I purchased it in multiple colors to work up one large project. Most of the colors I ordered were fine, but the Esoteric is terrible. I have treated all colors the same, but the Esoteric insists on breaking over and over and over. Obviously after the second break I started handling it with kid gloves and still it is thinned so badly in areas that it breaks or I have to cut out the thinned area. I currently have over 25 joins in my project where the yarn has broken. I feel like they had to have know since I have already cut out 4 joins from the one skein. I have now spent 3 months of my time and almost $100 in yarn for a project with all these week spots. All I want is to be done with this project and never have to use this yarn again. Terribly upset with the waste of my time and money.

          First time using this yarn - lovely texture, no splitting, colour variation is gradual but effective.

          Comments about Madelinetosh Tosh Lace:

          I love the look of this yarn and it's knitting up beautifully for a shawl I'm knitting for my mother to wear at my upcoming wedding.

          I will say that it totally got tangled in the center-pull ball I wound in ways that defy my knowledge of physics, and that there were pills that developed as I was working with the yarn, but I think both of these things happen with any lace weight yarn and I don't knock the yarn for that. It's GORGEOUS!

                    Though thinner than expected, it worked well for the intended pattern. The leftover is excellent for working 2 yarns together in my current project.

                      The yarn will become a shawl that is intended to be a gift. The color is so beautiful, I will have a hard time giving it away.

                      I bought this for a very light weight beaded shawl. It so far is working up beautifully! The yarn is irresistibly soft and I find myself cuddling my work in progress. The lace weight is quite fine but sturdier than other laces I've worked with.

                          The color for Nebula on the Webs website is wrong. If you go to the MT website, you can see an accurate picture of nebula which is quite dark & is black & teal. It's pretty so I decided to keep it.
