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.

    Comments about Madelinetosh Tosh DK:

    Madeline Tosh yarns are a joy to knit with and every one of their colors is like giving yourself a really cool birthday present! Sometimes, one has to be patient to receive certain colors, as they sell out rather quickly, but webs works really hard to ensure that their customers don't have to wait too long for a back ordered item.

      I made a hat and some fingerless gloves to be donated to one of our local cancer treatment centers. Because I knew this was going to cancer patients in treatment, I wanted something especially soft but fun. This really fit my needs and knitted up beautifully.

                I ordered the yarn to use in a crocheted afghan as a wedding present. I've used it before and love the feel, weight, and colors of this yarn. I've knitted with it, too. I have not yet washed anything made with it, though, so cannot speak to its durability with regard to washing and long-term wear. It does not seem to pill.

It is my ultimate choice for a DK yarn for a project that I can wear frequently. I used DK to make the ICON dress.....beyond gorgeous!

                    I really enjoyed working with this yarn. It felt so wonderful, I actually finished an entire sweater in less than 3 weeks! The yarn behaved well through the blocking process.

                    Note: In my experience, this yarn didn't stretch much during the blocking process. After it is pinned out and dried, the yarn shrunk back slightly to it's pre-blocked size after it was unpinned.

                      Comments about Madelinetosh Tosh DK:

                      I love Madelintosh yarns. They are wonderfully soft and a joy to knit or crochet with. Their dyes and colors are also really wonderful. I love the fact that the solid colors are not evenly dyed. I'm using my most recent purchase for a wedding gift of an afghan and since the bride likes grey, I went with grey. It was very frustrating for me (who loves color) to have to buy grey, but it turns out that there are many variations of grey among the Tosh DK yarns. And since the yarns have wonderful tonal changes, the final product will be quite lovely. It's a wonderful yarn to work with, as well.
