    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!

      Comments about Madelinetosh Pashmina:

      This yarn may twist if you pull it from the center of the ball after it is put on your swift and wound into a ball. The twisting appears very shortly after you start to knit with it. If this happens, pulling from the center of the ball, rewind it BACKWARDS using your yarn winder. (It has to do with the S or Z twist in the yarn. When you pull yarn from the center it adds twist. Too much twist makes it wrap around itself and can cause your project to look as if it is knit on a diagonal.)

        Comments about Madelinetosh Pashmina:

        I am making 2 shawls in the same color but slightly different patterns. I moved across the country, many miles away from my BFF. She will be visiting this fall and wanted to make something for each of us that would be truly exceptional. Mine is finished and is exceptional; so soft, lovely drape and will remind me of my friend when I wear it. I am a huge Madelinetosh fan, all my projects made with these yarn are beautiful wether knit or crochet. While a little more pricey, it's worth it for the quality and colors. Plus, Webs gives such a nice volume discount it's more affordable. Thanks Webs, you and Madelinetosh rock!

          Comments about Madelinetosh Pashmina:

          Ordered several skeins to make gift scarves. The first one turned out sumptuous. This yarn is pricey. But if you buy in quantity, the discount really helps. I can afford around $25. per scarf to give dear friends and family something really special. Haven't tried washing it yet.

              Have been knitting almost 50 years, and this is my new favorite yarn. Have ordered several skeins. It is an absolute delight to work with! Yes, it's pricey. But at one skein per small gift project (and ordered in bulk) SO worth it!

                        I've just started a sweater and I'm already thinking I don't want this project to end because I love the feel of the yarn in my hands as I knit. It is soft, but not squishy. The fabric has nice body and the stitches are very even. This is the first time I've used Pashmina but it won't be the last. Madelinetosh does such a great job with all their yarns.
