The yarn has a great texture and some neat colorways but be advised that there can be HUGE color variances even in the same dye lot. I had two hanks of same dye lot of Fremont and one of them look liked the washed out stepchild of the other, far less intense color. That said, this yarn is very hardy and has great stitch definition. I would be inclined to use for very small projects, where you can get away with a single skein only, in future. Even working from two balls at once isn't going to obfuscate some of the massive variance.

I just received three different color ways of this yarn. I started a shawlette. I love all the colors and it it so nice to knit with.

Love the yarn. Have made four scarves and the color "goose hollow"makes a beautiful scarf using a lacy knit stitch.

The yarn is beautiful, however, due to my inexperience with hand painted yarn, I did not work from two balls at once. Initially, I worked from one ball then the next. There was a very clear color demarcation and I had to rip out my work and start over.

Love this yarn for socks. However, wish it were offered in bigger hanks. 258 yards is a little short for 2 socks. When you are working with hand dyed-yarns, you really need both socks to come from the same skein for color consistency.

Colourway was disappointing. Described as rich purples but mine has a large block of light purple and blue. Not rich enough to look good with the greens and then there is a patch of horrid rose/peach. No clue what I'll ever knit with this. Feels soft, knits up lovely just terrible colour blend, would have not even glanced at it in a store.

I am knitting my first project with this yarn, a pair of toe-up socks in the Arbor Lodge color. I enjoy working with the yarn, and the color is beautiful. But the color pooling is already driving me nuts. It seems the variegation is too regular. If it were more random, I would consider buying this again.

I had recently used the fingering yarn for socks and loved it so much I just received 5 hanks of the Hawthorne sport in montavilla and can't wait to begin my next project! Colors are true to the picture and the hanks match very well for hand painted... I also love the fast service only taking 2 days to have a mailbox full of yarn!!! Had a problem w/ a download pattern, I called and had very courteous and quick service. Love knitpicks!!

LOVE this yarn!!! I ordered five different colorways and they are all even more gorgeous in person than they are on the site! Lovely to work with, and show great stitch definition! It does tangle easily but my husband helps me wind it into balls and it is a smooth process with two people. I only wish they offered more colorways in the sport weight! More please??! Amazing yarn!

Love this yarn - knits up a fabulous pair of socks. My usual co64 was too big on US3 so will try co60 or co58 for my next pair, but these socks are so lovely I'm wearing them big until I wash them. May try US2. Beautiful colors and stitch definition. Great socks absolutely.

I Love this yarn and I would give it an excellent if not for the fact that it tangles easily.

Knit Picks has a winner here. A sport weight hand paint at a reasonable price. Great to work with, nice stitch definition and beautiful colors. Just wish I had the time and money to work with all of the colorways.

I bought the Sellwood color--it's like looking into seawater. The yarn feels wonderful to the touch and knits up beautifully. I hope this is offered on a permanent basis.

Finally, a sport weight hand painted yarn at a very reasonable price. And it a joy to knit with. Beautiful colors, good stitch definition. Would love it if I had the time and money to use some of each colorway.
