So many shawls take three skeins that contrast but compliment each other. We know how hard it can be to put combinations together online, so we've taken the guesswork out and put together a selection of beautiful three-skein combos in MadTosh Tosh Merino Light. This delicious single ply, 4ply fingering weight yarn is a dream to knit or crochet, and has the most fabulous drape and sheen. Simply perfect for your next shawl!

There are so many wonderful three-colour shawls you can make with our selections, including Janine's beautiful Lilly Pilly shawl by Ambah O'Brien. Also have a look at:

Please note: Madelinetosh yarns do not come in dye lots. They are dyed by hand in small batches in Texas from wool ethically sourced in South Africa. The beauty of hand-dyed yarns is that each hank is a unique work of art, so please be aware that there can be a variation in colouring, hue and saturation, even within the same dye batch. We suggest using two skeins and alternating rows to ensure there is no obvious line when you change skeins. Dark colours may bleed with the first few washes.
