Madelinetosh, Tosh Vintage Special: Ruby Slippers
Madelinetosh gave SSYC a rare deal on an exceptional batch of their Tosh Vintage, a 100% superwash merino worsted weight yarn that's ideal for winter accessories, sweaters and more. Why are these particular skeins 35% off? Because you might notice a stripey/barberpole effect that comes from one of the four plies taking up the dye differently. This could happen because that one ply is spun slightly tighter or in the opposite direction or has a bit of fiber that doesn't take up the dye. We wouldn't qualify these as "seconds", as the yarn knits up the same as it always does, and the colors are just as beautiful as always- in fact, you might prefer the added dimension this gives your knitted fabric. These are first quality skeins, simply beautiful anomalies. Act fast - there are very limited amounts and Madelinetosh retails this at $28.50.
