    Please note: Each skein of Tosh Merino Light is unique. There are no dye lots and skeins may vary. The yarn color you receive may look different than the color pictured.

    This is, hands down, the most beautiful yarn I've ever worked with. I used Fathom for a scarf that turned out amazing. The color fades in and out to a very deep, saturated blue. My mom has 2 other colors stashed, and they are equally beautiful. I found the yarn very texturally interesting; the thickness varies just enough. I never got tired of working with it, and if I had the funds I would order like 20 more skeins. The price is a little steep for me, but the yardage and coloring makes it perfect for treating yourself :) Trust me--once you work with it, you won't want to give it away!

    I had an average of 3 - 4 spliced yarn knots per skein. On top of that I also had (in 2 skeins) very cleanly cut pieces of yarn that I had to tie back together (when winding the yarn - there was just unexpected clean cut end pieces). I wind my yarn by hand so it wasn't from quickly winding on a yarn swift that "broke" the yarn. These were not breaks - but clean cuts. This single ply yarn is very loose and fragile in many places. After I managed to complete my lace knit stole and gently washed before blocking - I saw that there were 6 places in the lace knit pattern where the yarn had broken again (not where the knots were). I also had to alter my pattern as I bought more yarn than I needed and yet fell way short of yarn needed to make my wrap the length specified in my pattern. My gauge was correct - I feel I was shorted on the yarn in the skeins some as I should have had at least 60 yds left over (the pattern called for 1200 yds and I purchased 3 skeins). This is the first time I have ever run out of yarn when knitting any project - I always have left over yarn. There were 17 pattern on each half but I was only able to complete 10 1/2 on the 2nd side. I hesitate to machine wash this as it is SO fragile (the lable says you can machine wash). I was torn between knitting my project in this yarn or my usual favorite Lorna's Laces - I chose this because it was a little less (cost wise). The colors are very pretty and work well with the pattern I used - I just don't see how it will be worn much due to the fragile nature of this yarn. I was hoping to have something special (a stole) as a knit keepsake from my son's wedding. I'll be lucky to have it last through the ceremony.

      I knit a lot of lace shawls and I love the beautiful colors, the drape is fabulous, and it blocks very well. It is soft and feels nice to knit with.

          Beautifully soft. I got "cathedral." In my lot, the brown is redder and the pink is purpler than in the sample, but that's to be expected with a handdye! Lovely yarn

            Madeline tosh yarns are perfect for any project you can think of. I've used madeline tosh worsted weight for sweaters. The sock weight yarn is perfect for cowls, shawls, and of course socks!! I used the sock weight to make a beautiful beaded cowl. Now I'm doing a shawl. I love how madeline tosh works up. It's soft and the subtle shades work up beautifully. All the colors are just gorgeous. Try some for yourself, you won't be sorry!!!

                  Love this yarn. Love the unusual colors, careful, some are awful. I wish they would show a full picture of the skein. This yarn is so soft a lovely to knit with. It's the perfect sweater weight yarn. It wears beautifully.

                  Have made several sweaters and meridien jacket.
                  Made a cowl.
                  Made toddler vest.
                  Love that it is machine washable.
                  Can get a lot of variation between skeins, sometimes need to alternate skeins.
                  Beautiful finished garments, great drape.
                  One of my favorite yarns
