    I love this yarn because of the feel and the texture. It really is very soft and comfortable. My comment is aimed at the fact that there are no dye lots for this yarn. This is not an issue until you need to use more than one hank...there will be noticeable color shifts unless you knit from two skeins at once ( two rows from one, two rows from the other).
    I purchased four hanks of this yarn, intending to knit a sweater. I know about the dye lot issue, and wanted to see if I could effectively disguise the color shifts...
    I decided to knit squares, each one from a different skein. I assembled them as I worked. The sweater is not finished, but I can see that this method does NOT disguise the color shifts. Each square is just a little different from the next, but since the sweater itself is one unit, I think I can pull it off.
    HOWEVER, if I were to purchase multiple hanks of this yarn again, I would simply knit whatever I was making with the two-rows-from-two-skeins method. I think it's the only way to get a really cohesive whole.

    not really such a great yarn

    planned on using this splurge on a fitted sweater which I will do but yarn is really thinner than I expected more like a fingering and the ball ban stated gauge is overly optimistic. ...Read complete review

    planned on using this splurge on a fitted sweater which I will do but yarn is really thinner than I expected more like a fingering and the ball ban stated gauge is overly optimistic. my gauge swatch is soft and drapes well but at suggested gauge is almost see through!

    Nice weight for the reversible blanket. Slight amount of color variance in the Astrd Grey works up to show definition in the pattern very nicely. A real pleasure to work with. Have already ordered a second color.

      The yarn was not a gift, but the shrug I made with it is. Pattern recommended this yarn and it was a perfect choice. I'll use it again if it washes and wears as well as it knits.

            Comments about Madelinetosh Pashmina:

            I have been knitting for over 35 years and this is by far the most expensive yarn I have purchased. When I finished knitting my sweater and tried it on, all I could say when I looked in the mirror was "Wow!" I am super sensitive to wool, and this yarn has just minimal itch around the neck; the rest of the sweater is super soft on my skin. The stitch definition and uniformity is like none other than I have ever knitted. The color is intensely rich and beautiful; the color shifts are amazing. (I did knit from 2 skeins at once, alternating rows.) I also found the gauge to be true when knitting on size 5 needles and after blocking. I highly recommend this yarn and look forward to using this yarn again in the future.

              I used this yarn for a shawl and was really pleased with the results. The yarn is very soft and has beautiful stitch definition and drape. I use Madeline Tosh yarns often because I love all of these features but most especially the vibrancy and depth of the colors.

                Only thing that was a little discouraging was out of 4 skeins ordered (4 colors) 2 had irregular color changes. I have worked with hand dyed yarn before. I really noticed it after knitting it and it is troubling enough I am considering not giving it as a gift. All in all it is a gorgeous product and I will be ordering this product again.

                  This is one of my favorite yarns. I knit a lot of gift hats with it, because it is so soft and doesn't itch while wearing. The colors available are fantastic. This yarn is very popular; if you like a color, make sure you buy enough skeins or you won't be able to find it as it will be sold out.

                        This is my very favorite yarn to knit with. I do a lot of lacy scarves and the colors and weight of this yarn make them something really special. My only wish is that it was in stock more often.

                        Delivery was prompt and perfect. I had one backorder and when I called to ask about it the person I dealt with was polite and sweet and accommodating. You just can't ask for better.
