PREORDER TWIST LIGHT! We are able to supply Twist Light and any of Madelinetosh's current bases and colours as a dye-to-order service in any quantity! Please see below for more details.

Please note that any yarn purchased at the same time as Madelinetosh Preorders will be held until the yarn arrives and shipped together. If you would like other items sent immediately, please place a separate order.


If socks are your thing, then Madelinetosh Twist Light is the yarn for you! With a blend of superwash merino and nylon, which adds tons of durability, this 4ply/sockweight yarn has three plies of yarn twisted to add even more strength. Amazingly, it's still soft enough to make shawls and any other garments. 

With 384 metres per skein, one skein is more than enough yardage to complete a pair of socks (unless you have big feet!), and two skeins can complete a full-sized shawl.

  • 75% superwash merino wool, 25% nylon
  • 4ply/fingering weight 
  • 3-ply construction (that is, 3 strands twisted together to form the yarn)
  • 384m / 420 yds per 100g skein
  • Knitting gauge: 26-30sts to 10cm on 2.25mm-2.75mm needles
  • Crochet gauge: 21-32 sts to 10cm using 2.25mm-3.5mm hook
  • Care: Machine wash cold on delicate cycle, air dry flat

Dyed by hand in Texas from wool ethically sourced in South Africa. 

Please Note: Dyed by hand in small batches, Madelinetosh yarns do not come in dye lots. The beauty of hand-dyed yarns is that each skein 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 alternating skeins to blend any differences in colour.

We are able to supply any of Madelinetosh's current bases and colours as a dye-to-order service in any quantity! 

Madelinetosh's online retail store is currently unable to ship to Australia, as the United States Postal Service is temporarily suspending international mail acceptance for Australia due to impacts related to the COVID-19 pandemic and other unrelated service disruptions.  

Dyed to order means that after you place an order with us, we will pass it on to Madelinetosh. If they don't have it in stock, they then expertly hand dye your colour choice, which makes each skein unique and special just for you. 

Once your order is ready, it will be included in our regular shipment of our in-stock bases. Deliveries to us arrive every four to six weeks.
