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:

    Webs carries many brands of yarn, but, I just love this yarn. I didn't realize that Webs carried this brand, and I was amazed at the color selection that was offered. It took me longer to select the "perfect" color for an Afghan I was making as a gift, than to actually receive the yarn.

            I have made sweaters for toddlers , it is great as it is machine washable,
            Scarfs, and baby blankets with this yarn. It is a very soft yarn also.
            Service is always great at Webs, love to buy yarn from them

                i used this yarn to knit a blanket for my 3-yr-old grandson since all the blankets i'd made him when he was a baby are now much too small to be of any use. it knitted up nicely, showed the heavily-textured pattern beautifully, and washed up very soft and cuddly. very happy overall.
