I am very disappointed that so far every skein I have used has a knot where two yarns have been tied together -- thus keeping my "what would have been one piece lovely cowl" from being a one piece without knot cowl.

Lovely Yarn

        Comments about Plymouth Yarn Encore Colorspun:

        I made a seed stitch scarf out of the Berry Grape color, and it is just lovely! I love the subtle color change that resulted from the color-changing ply. It is beautiful yarn. And bonus, machine washable, so that's awesome. The quality seemed great, I had no issues with splitting or knots, very minimal shedding and twisting. It was a joy to knit with.

        As a word of warning, though, I also purchased the Grey Ombre color for a different project and was disappointed by the color when I saw it. The change from light to dark is way more subtle than I expected based on the picture. If I was rating this yarn based on the Grey Ombre alone, it would not get a 5 from me because of that. The Berry Grape is gorgeous though.

        I used this product to complete a blanket that I had making for my great nephew. I ran out of yarn and was able to order the same yarn. It matched perfectly with the yarn that I had purchased in a yarn store.

          I have purchased many different Colorspun yards in recent months and continue to be delighted by the beauty of the yarns and their quality. At present I am knitting scarves for a number of members of our large family, using many different patterns. The results are stunning each time!! I highly recommend this lovely yarn! The color combinations are especially delightful, and different patterns produce a wonderful array of effects.
