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.

    Comments about Madelinetosh Tosh DK:

    Disappointed in the KNOTS that seem to appear in so many places in this yarn. Not sure I would use this again - I have use so many Tosh yarns and this one is kind of a disappointment. The SOCK weight is SO much better quality!!

              I used 3 hanks of the Night Blume color to knit the Mara shawl by Madelinetosh. The yarn's hand dyed color is absolutely stunning and variations just add more beauty to the piece! The yarn seemed to get softer as I worked it up. This delicious yarn is surely a new favorite. I've already stashed 3 hanks of Sea Salt to play with soon!

                I love the painted color variations. If making a large project might be good to vary skeins. The yarn is easy to knit and so soft. I've made several cowls and have been very pleased.

                I bought this yarn in one place thinking I had enough for a cardigan. I must have miscalculated, and ran out. I then ordered from Webs and, although there is no batch/dye lot for this yarn, the yarn that came was obviously different, forcing me to re-work some of the cardigan. Now it's finished, it is delightful, but, be sure to get enough of it from one source for the whole project.

                  After balling two hanks and beginning knitting, I must tear out the red ('Tart' is a great color) band in my DK yarn afghan. The section with this yarn looks like I've been knitting with tightly coiled tubes - the twisting is that bad!! And it really slows me down, having to stop frequently to try un-twisting. Furthermore, this yarn is considerably thicker than the other two DK yarns in my afghan. Perhaps that's why it was formerly called "Tosh Worsted".

                    Possibly the most beautiful wool dk yarn I've ever met. Lovely all around. Most recently I made the Honey Cowl with it, and now everyone I know who knits is making it as well - largely because of this yarn!
