Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light 5-Skein Grab Bags are available for a limited time! Each grab bag is a collection of 5 hanks of  "one of a kind" colors that are not regular colorways. Selection is limited, but we'll do our best to fill color family requests with the colors we have in stock, but we can't guarantee it. We cannot fill requests for specific color names.

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.

I regret that I allowed myself to be seduced by the slight discount. Out of the five skeins I got, I would have picked maybe two on my own. The ones I cannot figure out what to do with include a garish pink (so not my color) and a muddy orangish brown and a third color that I cannot even describe. These were all dye mistakes, presumably, since they are labeled as "One of a Kind". I am not going to buy a grab bag ever again. Not that fond of color surprises, as I found out the hard way.

Comments about Yarn > Knitting Yarn Tosh Merino Light 5-Skein Grab Bag:

This was a "grab bag" of Madelinetosh merino light yarn. I love the yarn, but not from a grab bag. Some of the yarn looks like the last skein , full of fiber fuss (from handling too much), not colors I would buy or can be made into something easily. My bad decision to try, but I will buy from the regular running lot with WEB's good discount, it wasn't a great bargain either. Stay with the regular stuff.

Fun Surprise

Comments about Yarn > Knitting Yarn Tosh Merino Light 5-Skein Grab Bag:

I was a little nervous buying this grab bag as I didn't know what I'd get, but I'm very happy I did. I used three of the skeins for one-skein shawl projects that I gave as gifts. I have two skeins left, one of which I have a set of complimentary colors already, just need to figure out what to do with it, and the other I may use to do another one-skein project. These skeins were the usual MadTosh quality I've come to expect, just OOAK colors.

Comments about Yarn > Knitting Yarn Tosh Merino Light 5-Skein Grab Bag:

I thought the suspense of random colors was fun. Got great colors with some I wouldn't have selected for myself but will definitely use. Sorry when I read about people not liking the colors received. But then hey it's a grab bag.

      The first MadTosh Light grab bag I ordered, I specified a color family. I've been
      using the five skeins in multiple projects. The grab bag that I recently purchased
      included colors which were complementary, enough so that I will use all five
      skeins in a Steven West pattern that I've wanted to make! Thanks Webs!!

      This was my first time buying a grab bag. I was very pleased with how they selected colors that I had requested. My only complaint was that the skeins did not really match each other. Next time I will just be more specific about what I want.

      Comments about Yarn > Knitting Yarn Tosh Merino Light 5-Skein Grab Bag:

      I have already made two shawls with this yarn. And I have more in the dreaming stage. It is lovely to knit with. The 'one of a kind' colors are wonderful. Perhaps Madelinetosh is finding some stress with high demand for their lovely yarn. I say this because I find the colors are not fixed as well as they should be. The color was bleeding even in cool water for blocking. I had to soak it in a vinegar bath to set the color and then rinse it thoroughly. I know it takes a lot of time and water to properly dye, set and rinse...and I hope Madelinetosh will take care with these important steps even when their yarn is in great demand.

        Comments about Yarn > Knitting Yarn Tosh Merino Light 5-Skein Grab Bag:

        This was my first leap into grab bag buying. I had no idea what to expect, but I offered multiple choices of color families I'm fond of (including neutrals) and mentioned a couple of colors I really didn't want/ am allergic to. I'm really pleased with the selection I received, which reminds me of a beachscape on a stormy day.

        Comments about Yarn > Knitting Yarn Tosh Merino Light 5-Skein Grab Bag:

        I received 5 beautifully coordinated skeins. All of the skeins are "one of a kind" rather than being any of the "known" Tosh colorways. My package happened to contain blues and greens. Some of the skeins were a bit fuzzy on the outside, but nothing that would keep me from buying again. If I had more room and money, I'd buy them all.
