Dahlia 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.

If you have any questions, give us a call or check out our videos on working with hand-dyed yarns!

Great yarn for one-skein projects, with caution 5 out of 5 (5 out of 5)
A few months ago, I ordered two of the limited edition Tosh DK Tea Cakes, in Red Velvet Rooibos and Chai Spice. The latter was a nice brown mix with plenty of value contrast. I was tempted to return the Red Velvet Rooibos mix because I didn't like the reds together and there was minimal value contrast. However, I could separate the tea cakes into four each of red-reds, pink-reds, and orange-reds, add a unifying neutral main color, and knit three hats. I finally settled on Black Tie Affair as an alternative, which turned out to be a mainly gray mix - much lighter than I expected but OK. I like all three of the resulting three hats. All of that said: I love this yarn. It is thicker than most DKs, more a light worsted that would be absolutely perfect for sweaters IF it weren't for the variability of dyeing. It is spun with a light twist so is subject to splitting, but I didn't find that to be a major problem. The major problem with this yarn, beyond its limited use for one-skein projects, is the fact that it is a superwash yarn. I cannot imagine paying its price to make an item that won't be hand-washed, but it is getting difficult to find merino yarn that has not been treated to make it machine washable. As we all know, or should know by now, the superwash treatment increases a tendency for the yarn to lose its elasticity. This occurs over time, so an accurate gauge is impossible to get without repeated manipulation/washing of a swatch. I have learned from experience that using needles two or three sizes smaller than directed for a garment size will produce a garment that is much too small and stiff before it is washed and blocked but will relax, soften, and grow to the size desired, but it's still a crap shoot that isn't a risk with wool that must be swatched for gauge and hand-washed. Despite the limitations and caution, I rated this yarn five stars because of its marvelous texture and depth of colors.
