Madelinetosh Tosh Vintage Yarn - Charcoal Reviews

Madelinetosh Tosh Vintage Yarn - Charcoal
Charcoal shown $24.00

Tosh Vintage is a 100% superwash merino wool, with a generous 200 yards per skein. Working up at a versatile worsted gauge Tosh Vintage is perfect for hard-wearing sweater and accessory projects. Each squishy soft skein is hand-dyed in small dye lots and machine washable!

Quick Shot Colors: Quick Shots are test colors from Tosh that are not yet available to anyone but us! These will be arriving on a monthly basis and the ones that get the most love will help Tosh decide which of the colors to make permanent!

Please 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!

Like the feel of this yarn 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
I'm fairly new to knitting and still trying to find my favorite types of yarn, but the Vintage is one of them. Just finished a cowl made from this and it turned out very nice.

Mad Tosh never disappoints 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
Mad Tosh Vintage is a soft true worsted yarn. Knits with lovely definition for cables or Guernsey type patterns. Colors are amazingly saturated and add pizzazz to any project.

wow factor yarn 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
I love Tosh...the colors are vibrant and delicious. I decided to be adventuresome and make an entire V-neck sweater with Wink..one of the new 2018 dye works. This can be challenging due to color differentiation and I did not take the recommendation to change skeins every two rows. The sweater for my daughter is striking and as an intermediate skill knitter, I am proud of my work. The great color changes work well with non-complex patterns like the one I chose. My first choice of a lace design front was not the best as colors merged with the holes and so changed my plan with a plain stockinet stitch which was perfect. I definitely will use Tosh Vintage again. The worsted weight is very efficient and the soft cushy depth is marvelous...all in a washable durable yarn. Thank you Jimmy Beans for your assistance in my project. I am very pleased and will order from you again soon!!
