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:

I knitted a sweater last year with Tosh Vintage and it is truly one of the most beautiful pieces I've made to date. This yarn is so soft, so springy, and yet it has worn really, really well (almost no pilling at all with regular wear). Only warning is that it blooms/grows like mad, so sizing may be a challenge - swatch, swatch, and swatch again! That said, I find that it's easy to block it back down to a reasonable size after washing and it holds it's shape nicely once it's dry. This yarn is a superwash so in theory can be washed in a machine, but I've never tried it. Nope, I'm not that brave ;)

    Comments about Madelinetosh Tosh Vintage:

    I have knit every weight of Madeline Tosh in many types of clothing from hats, gloves, socks , scarves to sweaters. The yarn always knits up beautifully. Sweaters knit and worn every Fall/Winter for over three years still holding up well and no pill(!) This is one of three favorite yarns - the other two being Malabrigo and Brooklyn Tweed.

                    Buy it! You'll love it! Once Madelinetosh has slipped through your fingers, you will find it difficult to purchase any other yarns. No kidding. I've made hats using different weights and all of them have a unique look because of Madelinetosh yarns.
                    Buy it! You'll love it!
