Yes. We have Tosh DK.

We haven't seen yarn from Madelinetosh in some time. When they called a few weeks ago and told us they were ready to dye our order, we couldn't say no. We now have four baskets full of Tosh DK, one of their most popular yarns. This is a gorgeous plied, superwash merino wool with more than 250 yards in each squishy skein.
Need some pattern ideas? There are more than 32,000 projects on Ravelry using Tosh DK. A few of my favorite ideas include Gudrun Johnston's Norie, the Brass and Steam Shawl, and the classic Baby Surprise Jacket.
This is also a perfect choice for sweaters. It's so soft, the colors are rich and interesting, and the yarn holds up very nicely to the kind of wear you will be giving your new favorite sweater. The thousands of knitters who have used this yarn for sweaters can't be wrong.
This yarn is notoriously difficult to get our hands on, so if you see something you like, don't hesitate. Who knows when we will be able to refresh our stock again!
