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:

    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.

      I was very disappointed to find the colours on both skeins were not similar to the computer picture at all. I sent them both back and am a little afraid to order from the computer again. I lost as far as shipping costs both ways.

        Comments about Madelinetosh Tosh DK:

        I bought the Plaid Blanket colorway to supplement the Tosh I had in my stash. There are several years between these purchases, but they are very similar in their dye jobs. I will alternate old with new, but do not think I will have a problem. Very happy about that. I am making the Portage sweater with this yarn. It's looking great. I am using my stiletto point Signature circular with it and am not having any problems with splitting. The dye saturation is good - no white spots. One hank had a knot and some shredding in parts - not pleased with that, but you wouldn't have known until you actually wound it.

        Service and delivery comments:

        I like WEBS, and will continue to order from them. Standard delivery is slower than I would like, but when you are anxious to get your yarn... It would be nice if they would send an email when your order is shipped, so you don't have to keep checking your order status.

          Comments about Madelinetosh Tosh DK:

          When I first started knitting I didn't see the point of purchasing such costly yarn. Now I see that the investment is worth it. For months I've been drooling over everyone's finished objects made with Madeline Tosh yarn, but have shied away from such an expense. It is worth every penny! The colors are so richly saturated and the yarn buttery soft, that it adds a special pizzazz to the piece that is beyond compare. Thank you for carrying this yarn! Also, WEBS customer service has been fantastic! At first I received an email telling me that a mistake was made and the yarn was not in stock. Two days later, it was shipped. What first was an annoyance was made up for by good communication and swift shipping. Thanks again!

            I made a waffle stitch infinity scarf with Tosh DK in Spectrum, and it was a joy to work with. It feels so soft around my neck I can't believe it's wool, and the colors go with almost everything. I have already purchased more, even though I don't have a project in mind yet. It's a bit pricey, but I think it's worth it for the knitting experience and for the end product.

              I purchased the shade Spectrum which is beautiful but, unfortunately, because it is hand dyed it looks nothing like the sample shown on the web site so I couldn't use it for its intended purpose. It was too pretty to send back so it became something else. It is a pleasure to knit with and watch the colors evolve. There was no pooling. I get compliments each time I wear the cowl I made.

                Disappointed in the KNOTS that seem to appear in so many places in this yarn. Not sure I would use this again - I have use so many Tosh yarns and this one is kind of a disappointment. The SOCK weight is SO much better quality!!
