Madelinetosh Hue of the Moment

Availability: Out of stock

MadTosh already has a pretty extensive library of colors, but there's no such thing as too many colors. This is where Hue of the Moment comes in. Each month they'll debut a new hand-dyed shade (or shades!), it'll live on this page, and it'll be here for a short time before it goes away.

Each month, we'll have the Hue of the Moment available in both Twist Light (Plied 75% SW Merino, 25% Nylon; 420 yards / 100 grams) and Madelinetosh's newest base and first foray into upcycled yarn, Woolcycle Sport (100% upcycled superwash wool, 329 yards / 100 grams).

  • March 2023 - Sans Regret.  This month's HOTM asks us to look at nuances.  To not just swing between this and that, but learn about what's in the middle.  Like Spring.  Perched between winter and summer, it's the place of longing, vibrance and life - all mixed into blustery and beautiful days.  No regrets, as we transition between grey shady days and yellow sunny ones, each containing multitudes, like this colorway.
  • April 2023 - Pink Moon Named for April's full moon, which gets it's name from spring's moss phlox, this color asks us to step away from our screens and indulge in the beauty of the world.  Look for April's full moon on April 6th.
