Hawthorne Tonal Hand Paint

$10.99 100g / Hank


This beguiling twist on our sturdy, vibrant, superwash sock yarn is carefully hand painted in vibrant colors with variations in hue, bringing shifting depths to Hawthorne’s unquestionable color. These handpainted lovelies draw almost entirely from similar tones and analogous colors, providing a subtle and sophisticated counterpoint to the wild chromo-diversity of Hawthorne Multi.

A classic high twist gives this the bounce and resilience Hawthorne is known for, great for the same things the yarn family does best: socks, shawls, and brilliant, durable accessories. The rich variation of Tonal is perfect for larger garments, like sweaters and shells, where its color can get the attention it deserves.

Welcome to the family, Tonal!

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

Love the colors. I would buy this if it can in Sport or DK.

First of all I love Hawthorne. I'm not disappointed in the quality, but the colors weren't what I expected. I ordered silverton and rockaway on tonal and kerns on multi and they all 3 looked like the exact same color. I returned the two tonal color ways. I would love to see this yarn in worsted weight for sweaters and in more colors in tonal!

These new color ways for Hawthorne are STUNNING. I had to buy every color and was delighted when my box arrived this morning. My skeins in real life looked just like the pictures on the Knit Picks website. I especially like the deep blue violet of Corvallis and the deep, cool reds in Hood River and Eugene. Well done Knit Picks!

OMG! I want all of them! I agree a worsted would be amazing, actually I was going to say DK, but your yarns run a bit light so your worsted works beautifully for most DK projects. I have been so wanting something with subtle coloration like this for a long time. I've used stroll tonal and love it, but this, this is above and beyond. Please add weights and colors.

These colors are just exquisite. If Hawthorne is ever available in a worsted weight, I'd buy and use LOTS.

I take machine washable fingering yarn and double it so you have a wonderful worsted weight yarn. Great for baby blankets.
