I purchased 18 skeins of this yarn in Meadow Heather to knit a blanket. It came out beautifully...until I washed it (according to directions). It now pills and sheds horribly--there are red (yes, red: I presume from the "heather" aspect?) pills all over our house, and thus clothes, and it is only getting worse with each wash. I am seriously considering throwing the blanket away, which makes me extremely disappointed.

          Best Uses

            Comments about Plymouth Yarn Encore Chunky:

            i use Encore yarn in any weight for sweaters and jackets due to it's easy care and that it can be machine washed and dried. It comes out of the dryer looking brand new. I am allergic to wool and usually cannot knit with wool yarn. I have no reaction while working with this yarn. I love this yarn.

                I use this for everything! Such a nice yarn when washability is an issue: for kids, men who are careless and folks who need pretty, warm scarves to actually work outside in the cold weather.

                  Lovely Yarn

                  from Ontario, Canada

                  Verified Buyer

                  Comments about Plymouth Yarn Encore Chunky:

                  I bought Plymouth Encore Chunky as a substitute for a sweater I knitted for my mother. It knitted up beautifully and it's very comfortable to wear as it's mostly acrylic.
                  The only draw back is the guard hairs on the yarn shed a bit.

                  Service and delivery comments:

                  I didn't have to wait too long for delivery and was in excellent condition.
                  You're going to pay for the exchange rate if you're ordering out side of America.
