Madelinetosh Prairie Yarn Reviews

Note: Dyed by hand in small batches, Madelinetosh yarns do not come in dye lots. We do our best to visually match hanks for each order and will contact you via email if one or more hanks differ noticeably from the others. The beauty of hand-dyed yarns is that each hank is a unique work of art, so please be aware that there can be a variation in coloring, hue and saturation, even within the same dye batch.

If you have any questions, give us a call or check out our videos on working with hand-dyed yarns!

Prairie is a 100% superwash merino wool, single-ply, lace weight yarn. With a generous 840 yards per skein, one skein is more than enough yardage to complete a full sized lace project! Each incredibly soft skein is hand-dyed in small dye lots and machine washable.

Love Love Love! 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
This yarn is gorgeous, knits up beautifully and I had to have one more color for the samples of my pattern to come ... a lovely women's pullover that wears just about year round!

Love, Love, LOVE! 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
I love this yarn. The price is just right for the yardage and the colors are wonderful. I've knitted several shawls with it and they turn out great. I haven't had any issues with knots mid-way through skein. Beautiful colors. It's my go-to.

The softest yarn.... 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
This yarn is so soft and knits up very well. As another reviewer said, it is a little thicker than lace weight which makes it an excellent choice for shawls. It blocks wonderfully and drapes perfectly. There is such a wide range of colors to choose from too so I will certainly be using this yarn again. I got two small shawls from the one skein which makes it very good value.

Color is beautiful 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
Can't wait to actually knit this up. It feels great and will be perfect for one of my Anne Hanson scarves.
