Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light is a 100% superwash merino wool, single-ply fingering weight yarn with a generous 420 yards per skein. One skein is more than enough yardage to complete a pair of socks and two skeins can complete a full-sized lace project. Each incredibly soft skein is hand-dyed in small dye lots.

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

I used the magenta colorway to make double sized hexagons for the Beekeeper's Quilt. The colorway is beautiful and has various shade of purple in it, which have just the right amount of contrast. Pooling has not been an issue at all, and the depth of color is amazing.
I was a bit worried about this yarn being single-ply, but I have had no problems with the yarn splitting or twisting up. I would recommend this yarn for scarves and shawls, but I would be a bit worried to use it for socks and would recommend a plied yarn, like Tosh Sock.
The yarn is soft and springy, and is not at all itchy. The machine washability makes is the icing on the cake!

I had an average of 3 - 4 spliced yarn knots per skein. On top of that I also had (in 2 skeins) very cleanly cut pieces of yarn that I had to tie back together (when winding the yarn - there was just unexpected clean cut end pieces). I wind my yarn by hand so it wasn't from quickly winding on a yarn swift that "broke" the yarn. These were not breaks - but clean cuts. This single ply yarn is very loose and fragile in many places. After I managed to complete my lace knit stole and gently washed before blocking - I saw that there were 6 places in the lace knit pattern where the yarn had broken again (not where the knots were). I also had to alter my pattern as I bought more yarn than I needed and yet fell way short of yarn needed to make my wrap the length specified in my pattern. My gauge was correct - I feel I was shorted on the yarn in the skeins some as I should have had at least 60 yds left over (the pattern called for 1200 yds and I purchased 3 skeins). This is the first time I have ever run out of yarn when knitting any project - I always have left over yarn. There were 17 pattern on each half but I was only able to complete 10 1/2 on the 2nd side. I hesitate to machine wash this as it is SO fragile (the lable says you can machine wash). I was torn between knitting my project in this yarn or my usual favorite Lorna's Laces - I chose this because it was a little less (cost wise). The colors are very pretty and work well with the pattern I used - I just don't see how it will be worn much due to the fragile nature of this yarn. I was hoping to have something special (a stole) as a knit keepsake from my son's wedding. I'll be lucky to have it last through the ceremony.

        Comments about true Tosh Merino Light:

        Love the hand dyed colors but the yarn would not wind properly. I have a top-of-the-line wooden ball winder that handles lace to chunky brilliantly but this was an absolute nightmare. I held the yarn feeding into the guide to keep tension extra even. But even so, the slippery strand constantly slid off the cake to wrap around the stem bottom or top, leaving huge strands to snag in use.I had to re-wind and found dozens of knots created in the yarn from twisting up on itself when coming out. Loosening the tension made the problem much worse. Re-tried 3 times and gave up. One hank had 7(!) ties or thick blobs in it.

          This is beautiful yarn. I gave it 4 stars because of the colors. the color way i selected appeared to have red, blue, purple tones proinent, what i received was more of the autum tones, green, gold, orange as the prevelant colors, although the other colors are there, the initial color mix looks very different from the photo. Exceptionally beautiful yarn, just off in the color i anticipated seeing when I opened my pacage.

                Since this is a singles (single-ply) it is beautifully suited to projects like scarves and shawls where you'd like softness and a nice drape. The variations in color are a treat for the eyes as you stitch and give a finished accessory that will match many more of your outfits.
