Hawthorne Speckle Handpaint

$10.99 100g / hank


Take our ever-popular Hawthorne, the sturdy, vibrant superwash yarn you love, as a base, add some style and pizazz, and you get Hawthorne Speckle Handpaint. Every Speckle skein is painted by hand with eccentric dapplings of color against the softest of backgrounds. Pair it with Hawthorne Multi or Kettle Dye for an eye-catching pop, or use it alone for a unique pair of socks or an everyday accessory that will bring a dazzle of color to any outfit.

Please note: Hawthorne is a hand painted yarn and colors may vary from skein to skein.

I just got my order of speckles. Wow, the base colour of Andromeda and Berry smoothie is not what I would call a warm gray. It's more of a tan gray. Also the base colour of Confetti Speckle has yellow tones. Well I will make them work, but they are nothing like the colours shown on the website. They won't be going in the project I have in mind. Socks instead. The rest of my order was GREAT

Knitting Stephen West's Boardwalk shawl pattern with each stripe a different Hawthorne Fingering speckle color and using the Hawthorne Fingering Kettle Dye Yarn for the border. I used the 4 original speckle colors for the first 4 colors in the shawl and I was going to repeat colors but alas! Knitpicks came out with more colors so I purchased additional colors and my shawl will be incredible:) Love the yarn, it is great value for your $!

I love this yarn!! I've made a few pairs of socks with Hawthorne and it wears well. It might not be as soft as Stroll is while you are knitting it, but it does soften up after a wash. I feel like its also more durable and sturdy. When planning on using more than one skein for a project, keep in mind that each skein may very slightly due to the nature of the dying process so you might want to alternate the balls every couple of rows. I loved it so much I made a shawl out of it and I already placed my order for some of the new colors!

I adore this yarn! The speckles are perfect and I've finally found a yarn that I prefer the crocheted fabric to the knit! I was shocked and excited about how good this looks hooked up. I want to fill a bucket with Hawthorne Speckle and make all the things.

I love this yarn, the base color of the cosmic speckle however is NOT grey, it's blue. I got 2 skeins which looked very different, but had the same aqua background nonetheless. I first thought I got aquatic speckle it is that prominent.

I just finished a pineapple pattern shawl in the Aquatic Speckle and I truly loved working with this yarn! I crocheted with it and it felt great and the finished product was beautiful. I will definitely buy a lot more of it.

Love this yarn! The skeins are quite different in shade, but that's common in hand painted products. If identical dye lots are what you're looking for, don't buy hand painted yarn. Personally, I love the differences and design my sweaters to incorporate those differences. I'll buy more. Lots more! Thank you KP!!

I love this yarn, got two of the confetti speckle. They are quite different in color however, so not using both for some project. One has much brighter colors while the other one the colors are much softer. However I like both of them

I just received my speckle the other day. I was so happy to find an affordable speckle yarn, but like all hand painted yarns, be prepared for it to not look exactly like the picture. The yarn I received had a lot of black, and hardly any pink or yellow. I was a bit disappointed, but it will still work really well for the project I intended. The base is a nice clean white though. The yarn itself it's really beautiful and knits up really nicely. I would purchase again!

This yarn is beautiful. It's going to make some seriously fun socks. I ordered the confetti sprinkle and, unlike other reviews, mine does not have a pink tint to it. It is white with various color speckles, just as pictured. I assume it's a difference in lots.

This yarn is so pretty and feels great! It's beautiful no matter what, but I agree with the other reviewer--the white isn't really white like in the picture (Confetti Speckle). It has a pink hue to it, so if you're looking for a colorful yarn with a pure white base, this might not be the best pick. Otherwise fantastic!

I really love this yarn, especially with my new majestic needle set I got myself. The only reason why I am not giving this 5 stars is because the white in the white version is really pink. I know this is from the bleeding of the other dye, but it's a real bummer it's not more white. I did double check that I receive the correct color I ordered, but the bleeding is kinda bad. I would order it again to see if I could score a true white, but if it's still pink I'll look elsewhere for a confetti yarn.
