I made a cable hoodie with an intricate pattern. What a total pleasure to knit with this yarn. I was worried about the acrylic fiber, but was making it for a friend with wool sensitivities- didn't need to worry. It shows stitch definition perfectly even though it is a bit of a dark color! The yarn is very, very soft and the weight is lovely- heavy enough for a fall sweater. Most people would think that the sweater is all wool. I could NOT be happier with this product.

Encore has always been my "go to" for sweaters. It has always been high quality. However, of the 25 skeins I ordered this time, at least 15 had frayed places in the middle of the skein, not just one, but numerous places. I love Encore all of them, and will continue to use it, but this latest order had me a little upset with the quality. I hope this will improve.

    Comments about Plymouth Yarn Encore Tweed:

    Plymouth Encore and Encore Tweed knit so smoothly and evenly. There is definite give in the stitches which is nice for cuffs, necks and bands, if needed. I have used this yarn for many projects and have not found another yarn that comes close to it for beautifully finished projects.

      I used this yard to crochet a Tunisian Afgan stitch. It made a wonderful background, which I cross stitched on top. I've receive many compliments on the look of this yarn. I would highly recommend it.

        Knit a sweater for husband to wear around the farm. It turned out so nice he can use it anywhere.....I like natural fibers, but don't really have time to handwash knit items. I often turn to Encore for my projects. 9 grandchildren.

          Makes a beautiful Afgan. Soft and easy on your hands. I do not like that some times there are knots in the middle of the skein. Price is right.
