Blog Giveaway – Madeline Tosh Sport

It has been a busy few weeks, which meant that I had to take a short blog break.  I had wanted to blog about the beautiful Fleece Artist Saldanha, a 100% fine merino lace weight yarn with generous yardage and hand-dyed color lines but it was not to be so.  So I thought I would mention it now. :)

On to the blog give away.   Many thanks to Madeline Tosh for sponsoring this blog give away!  They gave us two hanks of their new prototype yarn, Tosh Sport.  I am holding a hank right now and I can tell you that Tosh Sport is soft, smooth and lofty.  It would make beautiful accessories, garments and yes, socks.  Tosh Sport is a 100% superwash merino that comes with 280 yards of yarn on each hank.  The hanks seem to be around 70+ grams each.  This is a guess as the labels are not marked and I don’t have a scale here.  The color line is Well Water.

If you would like to have these two hanks please tell us what you would like to see - more of - from Madeline Tosh.  A new yarn, a new color, new fiber combinations, new yarn weights, anything you heart may desire.  What would you like to see under the Madeline Tosh label?  Please post a comment with your suggestion(s) and we will add your name to the pool from which we will select a name randomly.  If your name is selected the yarn is yours.  You have until Sunday August 1st, midnight to post a comment.  Hope to see you here!

  1. I love the Mad Tosh 100% Pure Silk laceweight and would enjoy seeing more colors. I initially bought a skein of this gorgeous yarn in the color Alabaster. Color and drape are just to die for! Let’s see many more!

  2. I’m so glad to see more sportweight yarns, so I would have to say colors: orange, magentas, and purples would be nice to see ! Thank you for this giveaway! =)

  3. Please consider an angora/merino blend for softer than soft neck wear, such as cowls. Love your color selections

  4. I am anxious to try some of these beautiful yarns – especially after reading all of the wonderful comments! I think I’ll try one of the sport or fingering weights for my next shawl project…

  5. I am excited that they are coming out with a sport weight. The fatter the better in my book. Can you tell that I am tired of little needles? LOVE the color too.

  6. I’d like to see the pashmina in a dk weight to make socks. It’s the only weight I use for socks & the silk/cashmere addition would make them wonderful.

  7. I’d like to see fingering or lace gauge cotton or linen and silk blends! Also, I’d love sport weight merino and silk blends, with something else thrown in, maybe.

    Thanks for asking :)
