Received the yarns yesterday, gorgeous colors. The yarn is soft, not as soft as stroll, but still not itchy. I read some reviews that said the colors bleed so I soaked each of the yarns for 30 minutes in a vinegar solution. Each of the washes for the colors was clear, so I feel good about it not running, when I block I will also use on of the color absorbing sheets.

Have purchased several color ways of Hawthorne. Very nice yarn. appears to be very durable. Colors do fade so wash separately especially at first. Very tightly coiled and not at all splitty. Not a soft yarn like Merino but on my feet that is not an issue. Does appear to soften in any case with washing. My wife hand knitted a pair of socks using this yarn. I have made several pairs of socks using a circular sock machine with this yarn. Hanks are a bit short to make a pair of mans calf length socks so consider this when purchasing.

Beware the Delphinium! It's such a lovely rich color, stunning really, but if you plan on pairing it with white or another light color for stranded knitting, PRE-WASH BEFORE KNITTING! Even though I soaked it gently in cold water, the blue color bled and ruined the project. The socks will still be warm and cozy, the they were so beautiful and now they look terrible. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!!

I love this yarn, I made a shawl with Poseidon, it looks and feels great. I decided to use it in other projects. The colors are beautiful!

Hawthorne is the BEST! I am sensitive to scratchy wool and I wasn't sure how I would like it, but from my first skein, I'm addicted to it. Projects soften up wonderfully, and it machine washes VERY well... much less pilling that other yarns. Color selection in handpainted and kettle dyes are all gorgeous.

Personally, I tend to be very sensitive to wool (except for Merino) so I was a little uncertain if I would be able to tolerate the yarn when I purchased a couple hanks of Delphinium. The yarn is a beautiful blue and has a very slow and subtle color change which was perfect for weaving. While the scarf I made is a little bit scratchy, I was thrilled to I discover that I could tolerate the itchiness enough to comfortably wear the scarf. Overall, the yarn is minimally itchy and the colors are beautiful enough that I could easily see myself making more scarves with this yarn.

Beautiful yarn to look at, but I worked with the Blackbird (shades of black) and ended up with black hands. I am hoping when I complete the socks and wash them, I can set the dye so I don't end up with black feet, too.

I don't like this yarn at all. To me it is scratchy and the finish is really dull in person. I purchased the blackbird colorway and it turns my hands black when I knit with it. The only way I can salvage it is to hold strands of other yarn with this one. I was really disappointed.

I have bought this yarn in Goddess and Delphinium, and I have to say it is one of my favorite yarns (Chroma being the other). My shawls turned out beautifully and everyone loves the colors.

I wanted to love this yarn. The colors are beautiful. However, it's pretty scratchy. The socks I made are not my favorite.

I wanted to love it, but it's a bit too scratchy for my taste. The color variegation is beautiful though!

I ordered a few hanks of the kettle dyed fingering sock yarn twice, in the past six weeks. The yarn is delightful and fabulous in every single way. For me being new to Knit Picks, and for how I never ordered on line until recently -- I am wondering why I even dreaded it? Knit Picks yarn is great quality at a fabulous price! It washes up great and is everything they claim it is, and more...

I got Goddess and Conifer. The Goddess just glows! It's going to be great for a shawl. There's just enough colour variation that it won't pool but just add in some highlights. Great addition to the Hawthorne line.
