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 so love Tosh yarns. The colors are wonderful and I love the feel of the yarn as I knit. I make hats for my shop and for gifts. Most people are wool-sensitive, so I use a lot of superwash. The only disturbing thing is the number of knots that are showing up in the skeins when that was a very rare thing with Tosh yarn. After talking with another dyer who uses the same mill and has the same issue, I've come to see it a bigger problem on a wider scale. So will not take off a star as I have before.

          Comments about Madelinetosh Tosh Vintage:

          This is an excellent worsted weight yarn that knits easily and quickly. The garment will hold its shape, and the hand-dyed colors are exquisite. I have used it over and over again to make hats, gloves, scarves. Madelinetosh variety of yarn allows you to coordinate draped cowls using sport-weight yarn with worsted-weight gloves and hats using the same color-way.

            This yarn is absolutely beautiful! The color is rich and varied and it knits up beautifully. I bought it to make a sweater and after seeing how beautiful the first few rows looked, I ordered another color for another project. It feels amazing, silky smooth, doesn't snag or split. I'm a fan of Madeline Tosh!

                I cannot comment on the performance or durability of the yarn as I have yet to use it. I just received my shipment of nine skeins each of Rainwater and Fathom. I had seen both colorways on unicorn tails at a LYS and fell in love. I understand that dye will look different on different bases, but at least HALF of my Fathom skeins can only be described as muddy navy. I am so disappointed I could cry. My receipt says that the colorway has be discontinued....I'm debating on whether or not to return them all and choosing another colorway. Rainwater is gorgeous and I am very pleased, but at this price point I expected MUCH better from such a company as Madelinetosh. So disappointed, I will never order their yarns online again.
