The first time I knit with Madelinetosh yarn, it was to rescue me from a possible custom order knitting disaster. I received a request for a neon pink cowl for a bike messenger in NYC and I couldn’t find the right pink anywhere. After a minor panic attack, Madelinetosh and their magical hand-dyed yarn entered the equation and saved the day. The bike messenger was beyond pleased by their super neon pink cowl, and I could breathe easy. After that introduction, I was hooked on Madelinetosh yarn. Their yarn is always soft, and the colors are hand-dyed pieces of a rainbow. Whenever I’m looking for a specific color to knit with, I go straight to Madelinetosh yarn, and I have yet to not find what I need.
If asked which yarn from the Madelinetosh line is my favorite, I wouldn’t be able to answer (as of yet), but I think that might change soon. I was walking around the store this week, and I noticed a beautiful raspberry red yarn that I had never noticed before. I reached for it, and the moment my hand touched it, I knew we were meant to meet. The yarn was Madelinetosh Pashmina in Heartbeat, and it was everything I ever wanted in yarn… soft, soft, soft, and colorful. I’m currently trying to figure out all the patterns I can knit with the lush mix of merino, silk, and cashmere that is Pashmina.
While I brainstorm on all my future projects with Pashmina, here are a few pattern ideas for a some of the Madelinetosh yarn we carry:

Herbarium and Free Spirit - Herbarium is a lace top that is airy and delicate, and Free Spirit is a shawl that I’m currently swooning over and need to get on my needles. Both of these projects are waiting to say hello to Tosh Merino Light.
