      Absolutely love the striping of the peach/lilac color. Have made Afghans, baby blankets and Prayer Shawls and all have been exquisite. Love the way it washes and drys.

          I knit baby afghans for the Air Force base located close to our home as a thank you for keeping all of us safe. While I knit I can hear the planes fly overhead which is a thrill!

          Wide variety of colors makes I adaptable to a number of different style products. I also have children and grandchildren who can be hard on fabrics, so it's a useful product for those who won't bother handwashing, etc.

              I have used Encore yarns for years and years to knit afghans, baby blankets, scarves,, mitts, sweaters, place mats, etc. For all my projects, Encore has produced excellent results, items that are vibrant in color and that hold their shape even after repeated washings. I continue to purchase Encore yarns for all kinds of gift and personal projects.

                  The colors in this yarn are beautiful - I got the teal with variegated shades of such and hightlights of greens, perfect for my great nieces request for "teal/ocean colors" for her newborn! I made several baby "sacs" and an afghan for her - perfect color for boy or girl!

                          I didn't know until I knitted many rows that this is a self-striping yarn. That isn't a negative for my use but it may not suit some knitters. Picture online looks like only blue/white, but there is some blue/gray inside the skein.
                          I like the feel of this yarn and I hope it continues to have this quality after washing.

                            I love Encore because it is reasonably priced, machine washable for easy care and comes in a large variety of colors. I use Encore for hats, gloves and blankets and it never disappoints!

                            Service and delivery comments:

                            The Web's website is easy to use and the deliveries are always prompt. I've ordered from some yarn discount suppliers and it took forever for my yarn to arrive and when it did, it was in terrible condition (dusty and one skein had been snagged on something before packaging). No more straying. I'm definitely a Web's customer for life.

                            With a large family (5 married children and soon to be eleven grandchildren), I spend a great deal of pleasurable time knitting for others: afghans, scarves, sweaters,
                            place mats, etc. I only use quality yarns and seek to purchase my yarns at times when the price of the yarn is most reasonable. Colorspun has been a favorite yarn for a long time!
