Is anyone else disgusted with Madelinetosh yarns??
Let me say that I love the Madelinetosh yarn for it's fiber and tight twist . It is delightful to knit with.
HOWEVER......after knitting nearly a dozen projects with it I am truly disgusted with their sloppy dyeing.
As a rug hooker and dyer of wools I understand the challenge and chemistry behind putting color on wool.
The MT folks need to get some skills in dyeing.
One color can be any number of hues and values.....and some are a completely different color entirely !!
I feel that they should start naming their yarn colors
CrapShoot 01, CrapShoot 02 ........
I refuse to have to alternate these yarns and most patterns require two skeins.
Yet I know there are many knitters who revere MTosh yarn and will say "yes, but....".
I say...."Yes , but.....they are charging nice prices for their yarn. The least they can do is try to learn to dye color names consistently."
Is anyone else feeling this frustration?
