This was my first order and use of Tosh DK and it's a very good experience. I have the Bark colourway, the skeins have been quite well matched, and the colour received matched my expectations from the online pictures. Tosh DK is nice and soft to use, knits up quite quickly, it does occasionally split a little but nothing major. Skeins were easy to wind up into balls, no tangling. My cardigan looks good although not quite finished yet. The only minus is the price - Madelinetosh is not cheap, but admitedly those are really nice and good quality yarns and we get some nice discounts here, so I should be ordering again :)

This is the most expensive yarn I ever purchased and when it arrived I gasped at how beautiful it was. So why the poor review? The first skein I tried to wind with my trusty ball winder was a joke. It was tangled beyond belief. Took me hours to fix with lots of cussing and swearing. When it was finally untangled it would not wind on the ball winder. This is a first for this winder. Next I knit a swatch. 5 stitches to the inch on fives and it didn't like my circular needles. It was like trying to knit with a slippery little cable and it hurt my hands. I had to go down two needle sizes and I'm not a loose knitter. the fabric was stiff and dense - not what I expected after all the reviews. The deal breaker was the dye job. Every time I accidentaly poked the yarn there was a white spot where the yarn was not dyed through! If I made a mistake it looked terrible even though the yarn bounced back. I'm sorry but I'm sending the rest back. I am terribly dissapointed with this yarn. Sad that it's so pretty but I can't use it.

          Using this for a baby blanket. Silver Leaf is a lovely soft color and the yarn couldn't be nicer to work with. It's smooth and soft and has good stitch definition. This is my first MadelineTosh purchase, but definitely not my last!

            Comments about Madelinetosh Tosh DK:

            This is perfect for winter sweaters. It is not especially heavy but very warm. You just want to cuddle up in it when the weather is cold. The texture remains soft and it does not seem to pill. This is a heavier weight DK yarn but for me, who takes a xlg size, I can make a reg. size and it works up just right for me. (2x) This may be due to my sl. more loose knitting but it is not dishraggy.

              Washability and durability are a must for me when it comes to children's items and gifts. With the color selection the MadTosh offers, the DK line is a no brainer for me.

                I have used this yarn before and it knits beautifully. I love working with it as it's soft and it's fun to see how the color varies slightly throughout the yarn. However, this last time I ordered a new color called "Coquette-Deux" and while I realize its hand-dyed. This batch must have missed the color setting portion of the dying process. My hands have been a light beet color the entire time I've been knitting with this yarn. It's very difficult to remove the color from my skin. I"m a little concerned that it will fade quite a lot after I wash it and block it.
