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've been using this yarn for many years and this is the first time I wasn't 100% happy with the product. Several skeins had too many knots and looked what to be black streaks within the off white yarn. All other skeins were fine and to my satisfaction.

                I love this yarn for warm kids sweaters and hats. It is warm and machine washable,it also wears well. It is a bit fuzzy and does split a little while knitting but I have not had any pulling issues with finished projects. All in all one of my favorite worsted weight yarns
