Delicious New Madelinetosh Colours (And Yarn Giveaway!)

We have some wonderful new colours from Madelinetosh: that gorgeous yarn company that hand dyes yarn, deep in the heart of Texas. Loop is proud to carry a vast array of colours and bases, including some bespoke colours created especially for Loop and a few new colours to join the Tosh colour palette.

The new colours are: Abiquiu, Gentle Monster, Harvest, Horoscope, Kenobi, Marfa, Not Sorry, Salt, Sandstorm, Smokestack/Optic, Snake, and Video Baby. Take a look at some of the new colours featured below.

New Sock Yarn At Loop ~ Twist Light

Madelinetosh‘s new sock yarn Twist Light is now at Loop. The yarn content  is 75% super wash merino and 25% nylon, making up the perfect blend for a soft and durable, hardwearing sock . This generous skein of 384 meters (420 yards) per 100 grams is more than enough for a pair of socks or with two skeins, knit up a generous sized lacy shawl. It is hand dyed in small batches and our first shipment, of the new colours, is already at the shop. More colours will be arriving very soon!

Perfect yarn colours in Merino Light for a project that fades from colour to colour ( and speckle density! ) subtly or ideal for a gradient project.

Beautiful colours in Prairie

Salt in Prairie

Salt in Prairie, the most delicate speckled colour way.

We’ve added 10 new colours to our already huge colour selection in this beautiful yarn. It’s one of our favourites. Prairie comes in a single ply, merino laceweight, perfect for shawls or garments. Soft and luxurious , the perfect weight for a summer shawl.

All of these beautiful new colours will be arriving in all of the madelinetosh bases that we stock in the next few months including Prairie, Merino Light, Twist Light, Pasmina, Vintage and Home! And in the Autumn we’ll be getting in Tosh DK to replace the Merino DK which has now been discontinued.

Loop stocks over 100 colours of madelinetosh including our bespoke colour ‘London Cosmopolitan’ as well as a favourite shade still dyed for Loop, ‘Olivia’.

See our website for a look at all the new madelinetosh colours!

  31. Beverley says:

    The prize skein would work in so many ways for anyone especially good in a combination with a speckled yarn from the range to add depth to a project. The variation in the deeper colour would add richness without a solid heavy block which gives the freedom to use with brighter speckled colour way or as a rich standalone in a project.

    The photos on the blog are excellent to see the new colours and I love reading the names of each one
