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.

Beautiful Superwash Yarn...

Pros

  • Gorgeous colors
  • Lovely "feel" To Knit
  • Lovely Feel To Wear

Cons

  • White Core

Best Uses

    Comments about Madelinetosh Tosh Chunky:

    The Madelinetosh yarns are my favorite yarns for wool sensitive people. I make hats that I sell and give as gifts and find myself going to Tosh yarns more often than any other yarns. It doesn't pill. It feels wonderful to knit. It washes beautifully. The way this yarn is dyed seems to be on the surface, leaving a white core. Which means if you snag the yarn, you're going to get a lighter color in that spot. A rare occurance: knots in the skein. I'm always irritated if this happens but it doesn't happen often with Tosh yarns. (I won't buy yarn from companies who make it a practice.)

      Comments about Madelinetosh Tosh Chunky:

      I made a slouch hat which needed 1.5 skeins alternating the two balls of yarn every other row to get a consistent look with the variation in dye lot. One skein had more shine, the other was quite dull.
      The turned out beautiful and so soft. Had just enough yarn left to make a pair of finger-less mitts (80 yards)

        Best Uses

          Comments about Madelinetosh Tosh Chunky:

          I bought two skeins to make hats for me and my man. The hats begin with ribbing for the cuff and then change to broken rib for the body. This yarn has such a fantastic feel, and the slight color variation looks fantastic in ribbed work. It's not enough to make it variegated, but it adds a lot of interest while keeping a solid color tone. The hats are soft and very warm, and this is not my go-to for bulky weight wool. The only thing I could see being a negative is the small color variations, and the green I bought has bits of red-brown in the variation - which I LOVE since it isn't overwhelming at all, but I could see how other people might not like it.

                I knitted slouchy hat that used whole skein, and yarn was dream to knit with. It's very tightly spun, colors are amazing and yarn feels smooth when knitting.
                After I washed the hat, yarn grew a bit, but not too much. I haven't tried to wash it in the machine, although it says it's machine washable.

                    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!

                        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.
