    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 have only knitted caps and scarves with this but I'm sure it would be great for other things. Ordered a red once that was so great but now not sure of the color, it was for a cancer patient friend and I didn't keep the info. Ordered the Robin Red Breast recently for myself and it isn't the pretty bright red I wanted. Would have rated this yarn a 5 but I got a blue yarn once that had a lot of white in it where the yarn had not been dyed completely and I guess I am still disappointed over that. No one locally carries the chunky so I am stuck with ordering it on line and I hate the hassle of returning, as I am disabled and can't get out easily. Yarn producers and vendors, in my opinion quality control is your responsibility, Particularly when we save our money up for good yarn!

            Comments about Madelinetosh Tosh Chunky:

            Yarn color was nothing like the photo that was posted. In addition, the yarn reeked of vinegar. I am guessing that Madelinetosh uses acetic acid to set their dyes, and this skein was not rinsed / aired out sufficiently. This item was backordered for quite a while, so I was extra disappointed when it finally arrived and was not usable for my project.

            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.
