      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.

          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)

            This yarn is gorgeous. A nice job of dying. It is soft, easy to knit and doesn't split. I am enjoying working with it and seeing how the various colors come out.

              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.

                      Comments about Madelinetosh Tosh DK:

                      I knitted a slouch hat with a twisted rib and the daisy stitch, an all over texture stitch. The hat came out amazing. The way the yarn is dyed really emphasizes the stitches. Looks terrific from a distance. I used Curiosity. I found the yarn easy to knit with, no knots in the skein, and the subtle shading distributed evenly but not predictably through the skein. Will be making mittens and a scarf to match. Can't think of any negatives for this yarn.

                      Service and delivery comments:

                      Could not ask for better service. Yarn arrived timely and in perfect condition. Did not need to use customer service.

                        I knitted a baby cardigan with this fine soft yarn. I love it. It is the best and most beautiful yarn I have ever used. While expensive, it is worth it if the budget allows. The only problem, for a novice, is that it doesn't hide mistakes.

                          I have used this yarn for everything from sweaters to gloves to hats to scarves and it works beautifully for all.

                          The uneven dyeing of the yarn makes it beautiful and the blending of colors makes it fun to knit with.

                          Sometime dye lots a quite different so you need to be careful when moving from skein to skein. Best to open up each skein and line them up where very similar colors need to match~like the front of a sweater.
