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.

          Comments about Plymouth Yarn Encore Colorspun:

          Am knitting a "Wallaby" hoodie sweater that called for a worsted weight. This yarn has a wonderfully soft feel & knits up beautifully. Have not washed it yet, so don't know how it will wash up.

                      Comments about Plymouth Yarn Encore Colorspun:

                      I selected Encore Colorspun for Sarah James' Piggy Back Squares baby blanket because it is machine washable and dryable, has long runs of color with gradual shifts, and is a worsted weight. There are very few yarns that have all three of these qualities. The gradual color shifts show off the mitered squares without being gaudy. Though not particularly soft, Colorspun seems sturdy and durable. I image this blanket being used to put under baby on a floor or as a top layer for warmth, but not next to a newborn's skin. It is evenly spun and easy to work with. I encountered no knots in the five skeins I used.
