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.

        Comments about Plymouth Yarn Encore:

        I ran out of two colors in the middle of a project. 1) you not only carried the same yarn, you had the same colors available.
        2) You shipped it so promptly that it arrived before I actually ran out of a color.

          Comments about Plymouth Yarn Encore:

          I was searching for a soft yarn with a only a small % of wool. This was perfect. My grandson will be starting college in the fall and I wanted to knit him a scarf in his school's color. I'm very happy with the result and know he will agree

              I used this to make a scarf. I knit two skeins together (to mix colors). So it was thick and tending toward coarse; knit singly it would be fine.

              Service and delivery comments:

              Service from Webs is always great. I emailed customer service about colors and they provided me with options.

                Good for jackets, vests and sweaters not right next to skin; also maybe hats and mittens.

                Service and delivery comments:

                Webs was great - yarn arrived promptly in excellent shape. Color representation on line was good. But when I didn't like the color next to other yarn I planned to use with it, Webs processed return with no hassles.

                      I mostly use this yarn for blankets and I can count on it being reliable and consistent every single time. It is a little pricy BUT well worth the extra money for all the benefits. It holds up well washing after washing and it is so soft! One of the biggest comments I get when I give someone a blanket is "Oh my goodness this is SO soft."
