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.

          I absolutely loved this yarn, it worked up beautifully in my Stephen West "The Doodler". It has a beautiful drape, it is incredibly soft and was very easy to work with. It didn't split, I really plan on using this yarn again and again.

            Comments about true Tosh Merino Light:

            The first thing I would say about Tosh Light is its eye-popping color! It stuns upon opening the package. I saw Tosh Light in the Whiskey Barrel color on a computer screen and wanted it right away. I was NOT disappointed...the color is accurate. This pops with gorgeous bits of saturated color and it literally shines in the sun. I love it so much. The fabric is light, which is exactly what I need for my shawl pattern. I will say that wound in a ball, the yard has the appearance of a fingering weight, but as I knit, the yarn "poofs" (perhaps because it is a single-ply) and totally appears to be a sport/dk....sometimes I think even a worsted weight. It really releases itself as I knit, which I don't mind in a shawl as a particular gauge is not paramount to me. If I had needed a solid gauge, it might have been a problem. So...beware.....this is soft and poofy! But in the best, most luxurious way!
