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.

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.

          Comments about Plymouth Yarn Encore Tweed:

          Love the diversity of this yarn. So many beautiful colors. I use it for most projects where I want the tweedy look. All weights are uniform and the texture is so soft. I also really like that there is no separation of the strands when working on a trick piece.
