Hawthorne Fingering Multi Yarn

$12.99 100g / Hank

A reflection of the great Northwest, Hawthorne is a yarn inspired by the varied and vibrant place we call home. Each colorway shows off hand painted hues and surprising pops of color that are as distinctive and exceptional as their namesake neighborhoods. With a high twist for durability, this fingering weight yarn is wonderfully sturdy and unquestionably colorful.

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

I like this yarn because when you knit with it in a cable pattern or any pattern for that matter you can really “see” it. I do think it is dense if that makes any sense and would agree with fellow reviewers that it’s not the softest yarn, stroll is definitely softer. It however feels to me as if it will be very durable and I am making socks. The fact that it is not as soft will not deter me from buying it. Would like more colors in blue mixed with greens and browns, khaki etc. Overall pleasant to knit with.

I received a shipment today and as always am awed by the amazing colourways this yarn comes in. Today was Alameda, Kenton and Eliot, all beautiful. In the past I have gotten Mt Tabor (my favourite) Vancouver, Woodlawn Selwood and Kerns, only Kerns was a little disappointing (a little warmer in tone and browner than expected) Overall I find the colours vivid, rich, and as shown on screen. The yarn feels strong and looks beautiful knitted up. I have used it for mittens and shawls and am super happy with it. Love this yarn!

The only good thing I can say is that the colours, though not true to the photos, are truly magnificent. It's tough on my hands while working it, it runs after I wash it, and covers my hands with dye while knitting. It really feels like it's straw, not wool. I made one piece with it, combining it with alpaca fingering and it was really awful. Watch your gauge everyone, it knits MUCH bigger than indicated. Knit Picks, I love you, but would you please take these colours and use them on Preciosa or Stroll fingering? It's frustrating to see such luscious colours and know that using them would only make an itchy, sticky piece that no one would like to wear, and that your hands are going to ache working with it.

I love this yarn for rugged sweaters, but a few tricks ... pre-wash the darker colours and knit from multiple skeins helix style circular, or back and forth to reduce pooling and colour differences. Machine laundering will tighten the fabric somewhat, so either knit a bit oversize or stretch back to size when damp and lay flat to dry. Some of my sweaters are several years old, have had lots of washes and still look like new.

This is my favorite knit picks yarn only because of the variety any hand paint colors. Unfortunately the Pictures are not often accurate of what you will get in the mail, more so with the newer colors. The Burlingame I received was mostly peach and pink with a smidge of muddy green/purple/yellow (not the crisp bright colors in the picture), same thing with the Woodstock. But then some are great! Like the speckles, Alberta arts etc. Still love them anyways but don’t depend on the images
