          Oh I just love this yarn! I'm one of the few people that doesn't like knitting with Madelinetosh DK but loves the colors. I bought 7 skeins of Cove. It's soft, knits up beautifully and it appears to be a true DK. My swatch only grew slightly. From 22 st and 28 rows to 21 st and 32 rows. I soaked it in a wool soak and laid it next to my heating vent to dry. While there was a little fuzz while knitting the swatch is not fuzzy at all. This is one of the few yarns where I can say I actually like the purl side as well as the stockinette side. I think you could put this in the dryer on low without a problem although I probably wouldn't agitate it. I would soak it in the washer and spin it out. I have other projects ahead of this yarn but I can't wait to knit with it. I hope they continue to make it past this batch!

            This yarn is amazing in every way. It knits up beautifully, very soft and squishy. The colors are deep and vibrant. I love that Madelinetosh did the color ways. The depth and shading of the colors in the finished knitted project is so pretty. Im using it to make my daughter a cardigan, and she can't wait to get her hands on it!

                I'm very glad that I went off my 'yarn diet' for 2014 in order to purchase this limited colorway. 5 of the 6 skeins are extremely well-matched, and the 6th is quite close - nothing that alternating skeins wouldn't fix. I can hardly wait to treat myself to a sweater in this lovely yarn.
