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

      I have bought several colors of this yarn over the years. Colors are always stunning (although not always exactly what I was expecting from the photo). I've used for sweaters & shawls.

        All Tosh colors are absolutely gorgeous. For the past year I've been obsessed with making sweaters out of sock weight yarn. This yarn works beautifully and the end results are stunning.

              Comments about true Tosh Sock:

              I am working with a variegated color way. The skeins blend together well. The yarn is well-spun and sturdy. Although this super wash yarn is made for socks, I'm using it for a boxy sweater which I intend to wear a lot, and I am happy it will go through the wash easily. On a slightly larger needle (loose knitter, size 3.25 mm) it drapes well, has a nice hand, and will be a cozy, wearable pullover.

                A reliable yarn that comes in a great many colors. Easy to wind into a cake, does not tangle. I mainly knit wraps/shawls and clothing. For me it is one of those go-to yarns that I consider when making a new project.

                  Comments about true Tosh Sock:

                  This yarn knit up beautifully but when I washed and blocked it, one skein faded horribly and produced a large stripe as a result. I do not recommend this yarn at all for this reason. Supposedly the company is going to suggest a fix, but I'm not about to reknit the project at this point!

                  Comments about true Tosh Sock:

                  I purchased the Arctic Blue to make a scarf and noticed after having wound the yarn and then knitting with it the color is coming off on my fingers. I have never had that happen with a yarn before and was told to use vinegar. I am at a point where I can't wash it because I have done 1/4 of the project and I don't want to lose what I have done and also it is wound into a ball. I guess it is something to be careful with in a dark color.
