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.

I heard so many reviews on Ravelry, I had to try it. One caution however, I took a long time selecting the colors I wanted, and viewed the samples on several computers - however, the thumbnail images for color selection on the WEBS site are much brighter/ lighter than actual. My only disappointment was when the yarns arrived, they were MUCH darker when I anticipated.

That said - it knits up beautifully and the yardage makes it a great value!

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

    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.

                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.

                  This is my new favorite yarn! It is so soft to your hands and knits up nicely. The yarn has a slight varigation which is just beautiful in a sweater. I prewashed the skeins and had very little color leaking.

                  Comments about Madelinetosh Tosh Sock:

                  I recently started crocheting a scarf with Madeline Tosh Sock, colorway ``ink glazed sock`` and while the yarn knits beautifully, is soft and the colors (I bought several other shades of blue and turquoise as well) are extremely beautiful, the dark blue one dyed my hands blue while crocheting it. I am hoping that after I wash it with salt and vinegar this will stop but I would have thought that the color in a yarn of this quality would not run to begin with. I`ll have to see how the other colorways I bought will work out in this respect. Otherwise, the yarn is great, and if the color of the other ones should turn out not to be running I`d sure buy Tosh Sock again.
