Hawthorne Tonal Hand Paint

$12.99 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.

Hawthorne Tonal Hand Paint is a terrific yarn. A really great value for the price, and easy to make up a terrific sock. I will definitely get more of these. In defense of the color "Eugene", my eyes see the color exactly as Knitpicks describes it---raisin, grapes, hints of red and maroon. I really liked knitting with it.

I’m delighted I tried this yarn for my sock knitting. It’s an outstanding value and I have happily ordered much more. I believe it will be my go to yarn for socks, especially when gifting the finished product.

Grants Pass colorway came exactly as expected and looks as the description claims. Yarn holds up extremely well, even after having been ripped out multiple times. Gets very soft after initial (hand) washing. Would purchase again; no pilling, and looks much more expensive than it is.

Just received my order of this yarn and am delighted with the color and softness of it. It seems to knit very easily without splitting and I will definitely order this again.

I do like this yarn, however two of the colours I ordered were nothing like the descriptions or photos. Eugene was an almost solid very dark brown and Kalamath falls an almost black navy,no tonal variations in them at all.I think the quality control could be a lot better.I know they are hand painted and expect variation but solids are not tonal!
