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:

      I've knitted three projects with Encore Tweed, and have at least one more in my queue. This yarn is very soft and easy to work with. I love it because I am sensitive to all-wool yarn. This brand doesn't itch at all! I've had tons of compliments on my finished sweaters. All the more amazing because it is so reasonably priced.

          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.

                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.
