Made a shawl from this and loved working with it. Since, I've dragged the shawl all over, packed it my my carry-on bag, and generally given it vigorous use. The yarn has held up beautifully - no pilling. I loved it and ordered more. It will shed some small halo on dark clothes, but I love the softness and hand and think it's a small amount.
Madeline Tosh has such wonderful rich color. I haven't knitted my Vintage yet, but the other Tosh yarns I've used have been lovely to knit with, made a beautiful product, and stood up to wear w/o pilling.
The Maizy has nice spring to it compared to other plant fiber yarns. There have been complaints about it being a bit splitty. That wasn't a big concern for me. I did a shawl for a friend with it, and really liked the drape and feel of the finished fabric.
The finish on these allows even mohair to slide well w/o being overly slippery. I like the size of the needle before the cable begins - enough to hold comfortably. The points are not as sharp as lace needles, but crisp enough to do fairly fine work. The fastener system is brilliant. I have some screw-in interchangeables from anothe company that constantly come undone. These are a very firm hold and the join is no problem for yarn to slide over. Love them.
I bought some of this from Woolwatcher, and am knitting a hat with it. Nice yarn! Substantial w/o being scratchy. It feels durable, and has a "real wool" feel to it that is very appealing. Easy to knit - not splitty, nice firm ply. Wish I'd bought more at the sale price. Looks good.
