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 used the DK to knit the pattern " Posh Tosh". What a great pattern! The yarn was lovely and knitted up beautifully. The stitches were clear and even, and the variety of stitches used created great interest.

      Comments about Madelinetosh Tosh DK:

      The only bad thing is that the colour bled...all over my hand, my clothes and anything else that the wool came into contact with WHILE I was knitting. I don't think that I would ever buy this product again unless it was undyed.

        I am knitting a pillow that has a variety of stitches and each show up great with this yarn. I was a bit surprised because it is so soft but it keeps its integrity nicely.

            One of three skeins was dyed significantly darker than the others. Perhaps there's a way to order from the same dye lot that I didn't know about.

                  I used this product to make a bonnet for myself and did ties on a bone lucet. It knits so beautifully and is ridiculously soft. I'm a big texture person and especially if yarn is going to touch your skin, it needs to be soft. It has a nice luster and great depth. I was super happy with this product and this is actually the second time I've bought it. I'm sure to be buying it again soon.
