      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:

      I bought this for a baby cocoon. It's beautiful to look at but I'm knitting for a winter baby and wanted a washable wool with a soft hand. This yarn feels like cotton, not wool, and isn't soft.

        Comments about Madelinetosh Tosh DK:

        I have used this for sweaters, cowls, hats, scarves and shawls. I love to handle it and knit with it; it's springy and has great memory to hold its shape. Blocks well and is soft and comfortable on the skin. Makes beautiful open patterns and textured stitches. Variegation within the skeins makes it not the best choice for cables or other surface patterns, but has great loft for textures and adds energy to open patterns. I love the beautiful colors, but there can be huge variation from skein to skein, even if ordered at the same time. Just made a sweater with 5 skeins of "Flashdance", and the colors varied from a color like the photo to very inky purple. Each one was lovely on its own, but the wide bands created in the sweater are quite apparent and give it a very casual, almost patchy effect. This variability between skeins adds to the verve of some items, but may not be desirable for items for work or evening. Its very warm and delightful for wearing. The dye doesn't fully penetrate the strands, so in areas where the strand might open, there will be very light spots.

        One of my favorite yarns, love the colors, love how it knits up.
        Would like if it came in solid colors, I haven't seen any.
        For where I live it is a perfect weight
        love that Webs has such an excellent selection.

          This yarn and the colors were suggested to me by the designer of the wrap that I made. He designed the wrap especially for me in honor of our move and the sale of our house. He is also my best friend and I always take his suggestions to heart. This yarn is very soft and perfect for the design.

              I am working on a lacey corset thing. I've had to start over *five* times! My bad. This yarn is superwash wool. It's super squishy. Even after so many starts, it looks like new! You can't even tell that the yarn has been used. I'm very pleased with this wool :O)

                  I use Tosh DK for almost all patterns That call for DK weight, unless I need a specific color that I can't get. I've only used it with hats & scarfs so far (only because I just recently discovered Madelinetosh & I'm focused/obsessed with hats at the moment) but I plan to use it on a sweater in the near future. I am absolutely obsessed with this yarn because it always gives me great stitch definition and drape, not to mention the beautiful colorways. I love that it DOESN'T split, and has great "bounce" (I tend to be a tight knitter, and Tosh DK holds up well, never looking stretched or pulled). LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this yarn!!

                    I bought a large quantity for a sweater. The color was tonal and not even across skeins (or the same skein for that matter) but I wanted a depth of color, and this yarn gave me what I was looking for.
