Madelinetosh Twist Light is the new yarn from Madelinetosh. It's in the shop, and we couldn’t be more excited! Twist Light is an unbelievable new base from Madelinetosh that is a dream to knit with. Made with washable wool and nylon, Twist Light is soft bouncy, perfect for socks, shawls, sweaters, and pretty much anything else. This yarn is seriously the best! And like all Madelinetosh yarns, Twist Light comes in some truly irresistible colors.
The tight twist of Twist Light creates fabric with excellent stitch definition, making it perfect for cables, textures, and color work of all kinds. Here at the shop, we’ve been having fun experimenting with Twist Light and Stephen West patterns, the two pretty much go hand-in-hand. We have had fun working up the Barndom shawl, a classic Stephen West. The traveling cables pop in the Twist Light, and the wide palette the base comes in means there is so much room to mix-and-match colorways. Barndom is a fun pattern that is super difficult to put down when you’re working on it. Each new row of the cable section reveals more of the geometric pattern. Finished, the shawl is a captivating collection of crisp shapes and stripes that perfectly shows off the color and texture of Twist Light.
The possibilities of Twist Light are endless! This yarn is completely amazing, and we can’t wait to see what you all do with it!
