The bold colors of Hawthorne make an even bigger statement on a DK-weight yarn! A reflection of the great Northwest, Hawthorne is a yarn inspired by the varied and vibrant place we call home. This sturdy, colorful, superwash yarn is made up of a blend of superwash wool for comfort and warmth and nylon for strength. Together they make a beautiful canvas for colors that range from bright and playful to moody and sophisticated. A classic high twist gives this the bounce and resilience, great for projects that are both sturdy and make a statement. Use this DK-weight version of Hawthorne for heavy socks and slippers, midweight accessories, easy-care blankets, and gorgeous sweaters.
Hawthorne DK features the best of Hawthorne Fingering colors and comes in four dye styles, each as beautiful as the next. Mix and match dye styles to create stunning multicolor projects.
Kettle Dyed – Skeins of Hawthorne Kettle Dyed are fully submerged in a large vessel, and then dye is added with minimal agitation to create beautiful semi-solid shades.
Multi – Hawthorne Multi is hand-painted to intentionally create surprising pops of color and variegation.
Tonal – To create the complex tonal colors of Hawthorne Tonal, dyes in multiple shades are hand-painted on each skein.
Speckle – Another hand-painted yarn, Hawthorne Speckle had dye speckled over each hank to create fun sprinkles of color.
Please note that due to the dye methods used, colors may vary from skein to skein.
Throw a party with this fun-loving colorway! A white background is the perfect blank canvas for pops of purple, fire engine red, yellow, forest green, and a deep blue. It would go great with a solid neutral like white, red, or purple.
Take a trip to the stars with Cosmic Speckle! The light gray background sets the stage for Caribbean blue and classic black speckles, with just a touch of a cool pinkish-purple.
This bold crimson enjoys darker and lighter tones from the winey red purples of burgundy and Bordeaux to subtle highlights of floral pink.
Shadows of deep sapphire and cool indigo are rounded out by a slightly golden shade of terre verte, making Mt. Scott a dusky hue on the darker end of the Hawthorne spectrum.
Bursting with dark maroons, shocking pinks, warm purples, and magenta, Rose City is a yarn in full bloom. A rose garden for your feet!
A cool, intense blue, Delphinium is a colorway in full bloom. A velvety midnight blue is the most saturated hue, slowly lightening up to cobalt and finishing with a soft violet blue.
A beautiful deep arctic blue, Northstar is a cool shade of dark denim mixed with a serene Prussian blue. A slight green undertone gives this organic night sky hue a Shibori-like feel.
Aptly named, Springwater is a cool sapphire blue with a wide range of tones from the stormy teals of ocean waters to the lavender blues of alpine lakes.
Refreshing and delicious, this classic confection of color will make your mouth water! A background of very, very pale green is sprinkled with bits of yellow, grass green, and cyan for a tart yet tasty combination.
Cattail is a warm grellow color, much like the flowering stalks of the plant it is named after. Highlights of pale celadon & mellow chartreuse are rounded out by lowlights of a deep, earthy bamboo shade.
Foster Powell comes alive with tiny patches of pale turquoise floating upon waves of herbaceous greens and bright chartreuse.
Shades of seafoam green deepen to ocean teal, accented by the palest clover. Scattered tones of warm gold accent Springfield's cool greens.
Shades of yellow, a light wash of brown here and there, and dollops of orange come together to create an overall golden color.
Like a juicy ripe peach, Kenton has a rich goldenrod base, contrasted with magenta and burgundy. Paler tones of yellow and pink add a layer of dimension.
Sweet and delicious, this tasty shade of amethyst has warm fuchsia undertones. At its most saturated, the color is a glowing magenta, and at its lightest is a light pinkish-purple.
Sweet Home is everything you love about flowers: shades of lilac, lavender, and iris are brightened by pops of magenta, and darker shades of violet bring overall depth.
Like the roiling clouds of an overcast sky, various shades of silver and grey get contrast from slate and denim blues, with an overall blue undertone and subtle brown highlights. A great complement and contrast to Klamath Falls.
Like a vast prairie night sky filled with pinpoints of twinkling stars, Blackbird's dark tones span the spectrum from blackest coal to a soft steel, with flashes of a light slate.
