Encore is my go-to yarn for everything that gets a lot of use and needs machine wash and dry - children's sweaters and hats, as well as afgans and pillow covers. It is wonderfully soft and not at all scratchy (something my grandson will not tolerate). The colors are vast and versatile. I have used both chunky and worsted weight. Both have been very successful!

I have been knitting afghans for my granddaughter (and others) for many many years. She uses them as her "buddy" and I have probably given her on an average of one a year for more than ten years. (By the end of the year, they are pretty well ruined because she "fingers them.)
When I started with Encore, it was soft and rather fluffy. I feel the quality has deteriorated through the years to where it's not the soft yarn it used to be. I am reluctant to change yarns because it is so familiar to me now . . . and there are good qualities. I have knitted afghans with other colors which seem to be softer (or maybe they have gotten coarser by now) but white is definitely not what it used to be. Not sure I would recommend it to a friend.

          wishing the quality hadn't changed somewhat, because Encore has always been my go to kids yarn that didn't lock or feel cheap and acrylic....now some of the colors do show the acrylic thread....

                Comments about Plymouth Yarn Encore:

                I do a lot of knitting for myself and for family. Plymouth's Encore is the yarn that comes to mind when I need a good worsted yarn that comes in a wide range of colors. The colors are all clear, never muddy. Encore has a great "feel" to it, and is a pleasure to knit with. It gives good stitch definition and is excellent for patterning. I've never had a problem with finding knots or uneven places in the yarn. Just a great yarn.

                          The customer service I received was excellent beyond measure. I needed additional yardage, and it was located and sent to me in a timely fashion. I have now completed three scarves.....it works up so quickly, my original idea of making ONE, multiplied!!!!
                          Knitting with your yarn makes me want to put up my Christmas tree NOW!!!! It is only August.
                          Thank you for the excellent service!
