    This is a follow-up to my review to add images. Finished projects and I am still loving this yarn. Used size 10 needles (byrspun straight & addi circular). The variation in color saturation is noticeable in each hank, so would not recommend for project where this matters (thought it added "character" to my scarves). Cowl is Lepidoptra adn Scarf is graphite (color much darker than show in product detail)

    This yarn is tightly spun and doesn't split. The colors are all they are hyped to be--glowing with a depth not often seen, the small variations making a fabric that holds the attention. The yarn has a sure, easy feel during the working. I could have, and sometimes did, work in the dark. I agree with other reviewers about the weight: it seems more like heavy worsted than chunky. In fact, WEBS lists it in their heavy worsted section also.

    I would have given 5 stars, but took one off because one hank had cut places in it. That's the stuff of cheapo, dollar a pound yarn, not premier wool of this price. I had the aggravation of several unplanned splices in mid-row.

    I sawed off another star because--also noted in another review--it has a chemical smell, probably from the dye. I wonder if other Colorway yarns have this same odor. I expect it to leave after a wash or two, but to smell it during the stiching is, well, one shouldn't have to.

    The yarn was for a self-designed smoking jacket done in Harris Tweed stitch on no. 9 bamboo needles, with letters rf and back. The knit-on bands and collar, and the sash are in seed stitch. I used Tart for MC, and Whiskey Barrel for CC. Overall, I'm pleased with the result and would, with the two chancy caveats above, recommend this brand. But it seems more like a specialty product, best suited for certain types of projects than for general purpose.

    Comments about Madelinetosh Tosh Chunky:

    I bought this yarn to make a hat, Hat was finished but it did not have the stretch it needed to fit my husbands head. So took it all apart. Tried larger needles and a different pattern, still did not work took that apart, decided I liked this yarn so much I would make myself something.
    Made boot toppers, very cute and LOVE this yarn...

              I actually really like this yarn. I wasn't sure at first because of the reviews I read concerning inconsistent dying but this batched worked out well. I have used 7 out of 11 skeins so far and have found no knots and no white spots. This is a good yarn and the colors are deep and brilliant.

                    I used this yarn to make a shawl that will be raffled off to raise funds for our local mental health clinic. Yarn looks more expensiive than it really cost. I am very pleased. The colors I chose blend nicely together.

                                Used for a sweater. I felt like the yarn "cooperated" with every stitch. The color melding was very satisfying when finished. I felt like I had really accomplished something because the yarn exceeded my expectations.

                                  This yarn is gorgeous. Very bulky, soft, and squishy. I made my husband a hat out of it after he decided the first one I made him wasn't warm enough. I figured bulky wool would be better, and it was. He LOVES the hat. The colorway is beautiful, with varied shades throughout. The only downside, and this is probably just wool in general, is that the hat is getting fuzzy now that he's used it a bunch of times. Hopefully it lasts more than one season!
