tosh merino light is a softly drapey single ply fingering weight handpainted yarn. Similar in feel to the Malabrigo sock, but the colors are just DIFFERENT. Multiply glazed to create tones and depth of hue that are just amazing, this yarn will make exquisite shawls, lovely lightweight sweaters, and lace projects will LOVE this yarn. Knitting Patterns pop and you'll want to wear what you knit forever. Buy enough, these are handmade in small batches. For larger projects, order a matched lot - tosh light takes 12 -16 weeks to arrive, but it's worth the wait!
