Betty Draper Blues shown $22.00
**Important Information regarding Tailor-made Tosh color Technicolor Dreamcoat!** As you can see from the picture for this colorway, there is a lot of variation between skeins and it is difficult to perfectly match multiple skeins. If you need more than one skein for a project, we will do our best visually match skeins that compliment each other and will contact you before shipping your order if there is considerable variation between skeins. Please feel free to put notes in your order with your tonal preferences. If you would like personalized guidance in picking the perfect skeins for your project(s), do not hesitate to contact us via phone, live chat, or email. Also, be sure to check out our Hand Dyed Yarn Guide which features videos, tips, and tricks for working with hand dyed yarns!

Note: Dyed by hand in small batches, Madelinetosh yarns do not come in dye lots. We do our best to visually match hanks for each order and will contact you via email if one or more hanks differ noticeably from the others. The beauty of hand-dyed yarns is that each hank is a unique work of art, so please be aware that there can be a variation in coloring, hue and saturation, even within the same dye batch.

Tosh Chunky is a 100% superwash merino wool. Working up at a versatile aran to chunky weight gauge, Tosh Chunky it is perfect for heavier sweater and accessory projects. Each squishy soft skein is hand-dyed in small dye lots and machine washable!

Overall Tosh Chunky Rating: 4.8 out of 5 (4.8 based on 25 reviews)
5 out of 5 (5 out of 5)
My first time to purchase the chunky weight of Madelinetosh. I used this on a highly cabled scarf and the texture really popped. The slight variations of color gave the fabric depth and interest...a great yarn choice for my project.

Haven't Used Yet but Love It 5 out of 5 (5 out of 5)
This was emergency yarn ordered when I thought another yarn was out of stock from another company. The other came in, so I used that, but I will use this yarn. The only reason I'm not using it immediately is that I did two other Christmas gifts with this color in different yarns - one was a huge sweater - and I'm sick of the color right now. Maybe this fall I'll do another infinity scarf.

Thin Chunky 4 out of 5 (4 out of 5)
I really like this yarn but it is on the light side of chunky so if using it in a pattern that calls for Chunky you might want to knit one size up. When I tried simply knitting it on larger needles the fabric was too loose and drapey.

Yummie 5 out of 5 (5 out of 5)
Made Mittens out of this and love it. It is on the thinner side of chunky so I did have to adjust my pattern a bit for this.

Work 2 skeins of yarn on a time 4 out of 5 (4 out of 5)
I made the mistake of not heeding this advise as all the skeins looked alike. Of course there's inflections among the skeins but to the eye nothing definite. I was wrong. When I started the second skein after knitting 1.5 inches, you can definitely see a lighter color on the first skein versus the darker tone on the second. The handling of the yarn is lovely but the fact I need to undo my knitting and start anew is not.
