Enchanted yarns by Madelinetosh and Dalilah Shawl!
Talking about yarns is one of the things that can make a knitter go to another dimension with the the biggest of smiles, isn’t true? And this is a real quick post to share my “love-at-the-moment”: Madelinetosh yarns!
There are eleven types and weights of yarns made from natural fibers with breathtaking colors! The secret is in these beautiful colors is their hand dyeing process known as kettle-dyeing, where the colors have different intensities along the yarn with occasional interference from other tones. There are no equal skeins or lot numbers and the pieces that are knitted with them seem to be benefited even more from the colors effect’s!
I recently created the Dalilah shawl (in 3 sizes: full, S and XS) withTosh DK (100% washable merino wool skein with approx 205m) and I think that those hues added to the project an incredible beauty! This yarn’s touch is also surprising because it resembles a smooth cotton!

And the love story continues with the Vintage Tosh, which is on my needles at the moment (just a bit thicker than DK and also 100% cold water machine washable merino wool and skeins of approximately 182 m). Every knitted inch requires a quick stop to admire the effect of the yarn!
Madelinetosh yarns seem to have won the hearts of many people and Vogue Knitting Early Fall 2011 brings a story with the creator of the brand, Amy Hendrix, that I enjoyed reading as an avid fan!
Another component of my excitement is to have succeeded in signing up at Yarn Club – The Magnolia Society, where during the four months I got 3 yarn shipments and different skeins quantities. At the subscription you can choose your favorite shades (Neutral, Natural or Jewel), and from there just waiting for that precious little package that arrives in the mail box!These are the colors of the yarn 80/10/10 Worsted (80% merino wool, cashmere 10% nylon and 10%) of the two subscriptions that just got (because it was impossible to choose just one!)
TreeTops (Jewel Tones)
Rambler (Neutral Tones)
Besides the website, blog and twitter of the brand, these are online stores where I like to look over the Madelinetosh yarns:
