Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Yarn - Night Bloom Reviews

Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Yarn - Night Bloom
Night Bloom shown $24.00

Tosh Merino is a gorgeous single-ply, 100% merino wool yarn, with a generous 210 yards per skein. The rustic, handspun look to this yarn is so distinctive in the finished fabric. Working up at a versatile worsted gauge, Tosh Merino is perfect for sweater and accessory projects. Each squishy soft skein is hand-dyed in small dye lots and so very soft to the touch.

Splitty and airy but at least no dye loss and got a heavy skein? 3 out of 5 stars (3 out of 5)
I was looking forward to this yarn as it was so similar on paper to Mal Worsted but superwash. It really disappointed me. I bought a onesies skein, which was heavy at 130g, and had no dye loss during washing which was the first time this has ever happened to me with a Tosh yarn. Usually during a bath it's like the first time the yarn has ever been exhausted, and my projects change color and my water looks like I dropped a highly pigmented Lush bath bomb into it. That was nice. On the flip-side though, the yarn is super splitty because it's not compact in any way like Mal Worsted or Manos or any of the other worsted/aran singles singles that aren't more rustic like Lett-Lopi. When I wasn't accidentally stabbing into the edges of it I had problems making gauge because of how much it compresses. I'm a tight knitter so I would make the recommended gauge on a US8-US10, and for stitch gauge I was on target. Row gauge though? Fat chance for example, magic looping a hat I made my usual stitch gauge on US10's of 16s/4 but got 28r/4 where I normally would have gotten about 22r/4. Because the yarn is larger in volume but kind of hollow in the middle unless you knit super loosely you might have similar issues.

Very soft yarn with great stitch definition. A lot of the more solid colors have beautiful tonal hues.
