Madelinetosh Tosh Sock

Madelinetosh Tosh Sock yarn is absolutely stunning. The delicately hand dyed yarn comes in beautiful colors and is super soft. The yarn has excellent stitch definition. It is perfect for lacey socks. Some hanks in the latest shipment are mislabeled as 420 yards - the correct yardage is 395.

Please note: Each skein of Tosh Sock is unique. There are no dye lots and skeins may vary. The yarn color you receive may look different than the color pictured.

Knitting with this color has turned my hands blue each time I knit. Looking forward to finishing this project. It will be really pretty and worth the blue fingers. I'll make sure to do a vinegar rinse to get the rest of the extra color out before I give the project as a gift.

Says Superwash, But...

Nice colorways, and good hand for knitting, BUT my skein had 2 knots. For yarn this expensive, that's not acceptable. I would also hand wash as machine washing resulted in socks shrinking...Read complete review

Comments about Madelinetosh Tosh Sock:

Is merino wool that is not treated to be machine washable no longer spun and available as a base yarn? Why would anyone pay a premium price for wool yarn and then machine wash items knitted with it? No-rinse products make handwashing so easy. The process of making it machine washable robs it of the elasticity that makes me love wool yarn. That said, Tosh merino sock yarn has marvelously soft, squishy "feel", and colors are amazing - until one tries to find two skeins of the same color that match. I finally broke down and ordered enough skeins for a sweater and matching socks because an exhaustive color search rendered Tosh as the only choice. I relied on WEBS customer service to do the matching of skeins and received all but one that look alike in the hank and one that looks "different" that will be used for the socks. I haven't begun knitting yet but am hoping that that the sweater won't reveal marked differences among the skeins. I have used Tosh merino for many one-skein items and absolutely love it for color and texture but not for the loss of elasticity. Every manufacturer of merino yarn seems to have jumped on the machine washable bandwagon, though. Tip: be sure to swatch, and then wash and dry the swatch at least three times before determining gauge if you don't want to end up with something that may be too large for its intended purpose.

    Comments about Madelinetosh Tosh Sock:

    I chose "Calligraphy" to make a pullover sweater for myself. I wanted something lightweight, but soft and warm, and this yarn is perfect. No one does dying better than MadelineTosh - the colors have depth and warmth. I didn't switch skeins on the body of the sweater and had no pooling. This color has very subtle color changes. I did alternate skeins on the sleeves - but mainly because one skein was quite a bit lighter and I needed to work it in. I enjoyed working with it and will definitely use it again for my next sweater! It has a tight twist and great stitch definition.

      Using this for a baby sweater. Gorgeous stitch definition! VERY forgiving of multiple rip-outs that I've had to do. Very soft. Very faint vinegar smell. Lovely yarn!

        Comments about Madelinetosh Tosh Sock:

        Don't mind me, I'm a huge Tosh fan! I love their colors, the way the yarn feels as I knit it, the strength of it. I knit to sell small items. Since many people are allergic to wool and I don't want to work with acrylics, I went to superwash. And this is where the love-fest with Tosh yarns began. That plus the absoluteiy gorgeous colors.
        Things to think through, however, when using Madelintosh yarns: the pictures of their colors can be very different than what you get. I recommend doing a Google Images or Ravelry search to see what one looks like knit up. The multi-colorways will hide stitch patterns - if you want them to pop, go for solids. There are no true "solids" in Tosh, which is why I love their yarns. If it matters to you, look elsewhere. Handwashes beautifully. I do NOT put art in the washing machine no matter what it says it can do.

          This is knitting up quickly and evenly to make a light summer cardigan. The texture of the fabric is very nice -- not too soft -- and the lace pattern of the yoke really stands out nicely. The yarn itself is beautifully spun and even, no knots so far! I would buy this again.

              Great sock yarn and the colors are gorgeous. I haven't ever had an issue of pooling. Some, but very little, felting does occur after wearing and numerous washes (both hand wash and machine wash&dry by accident) but this is still a hardy yarn that I love and highly recommend. Some fading on first wash so be careful but otherwise no significant color changes over time.
