Madelinetosh Twist Light Yarn Reviews

Twist Light is a soft-yet-durable sock-weight superwash merino and nylon blend. With a generous 420 yards per skein, one skein is more than enough yardage to complete a pair of socks and two skeins can complete a full-sized lace project! Each incredibly soft skein is hand-dyed in small dye lots.

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!

Overall Twist Light Rating: 4.8 out of 5 stars (4.8 based on 63 reviews)

A good workhorse yarn 4 out of 5 stars (4 out of 5)
This yarn is really nice. It is worsted spun and plied, which is different than a lot of other madelinetosh yarns other yarns are woolen-spun. Also, there is nylon in this yarn which extends the life of my projects. My finished project turned out a little more... formal than a woolen-spun yarn would have. In a good way. I love its stitch definition for cables and lace. I got tanzanite - a limited edition colorway - and I liked it.

Dye lot drama 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
Trying to match an older project but the dye lots are WAY different. Still Great yarn, it will just have to be used in a different project

Because Twist Light is one of my favorite yarns, I just couldn't pass up these new possible colorways. I'm so glad I added them to my stash.
