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.

    I like this yarn for baby items, especially hats and mitts as they are knit up quickly and are washable. The more the item is used, the softer it becomes. Also, a great range of colors.

        I just enjoy the variety of colors that I use with the Plymouth encore for my scarves and afghans-also use the Plymouth for baby blankets and the Plymouth alpaca for scarves-I am an advanced beginner and just enjoy doing the basic knitting!
        So easy to go on your web site and order! loved visiting your store a couple of years ago-could spend days!

          This yarn has a good weight for what I am knitting, which is an afghan. It shows the pattern very nicely. I have made the same pattern in a different yarn and it knitted up very loosely. Prefer the tighter look for the pattern.

            I bought this yarn for my 87 year old mom to crochet afghans this winter. She makes at least 15 a year so we are always looking for good prices and selections for her favorite yarn which is Encore.

              I was glad to find your website. I have used this yarn in the past, but the colors at local shops were very limited. I will be shopping with you in the future. I had some leftover cream yarn & was able to purchase more - color matched very well, even though the dyelots were different.

                      Comments about Plymouth Yarn Encore:

                      A wrokhorse washable worsted, excellent for quick projects. I am making 2-color hats for charity and the wide selection of colors made it easy to match the organizations color scheme. The yarn is easy to work with, soft, washes well, and works up quickly. So far I have not had any yarn vomit when starting a new ball, which is worth a star in itself, I think!

                      Encore is my go-to yarn for items that need to be hard-wearing and washable. Highly recommended.

                      Customer service was great, too! The order got lost in the mail and it was replaced promptly with no run-around. Awesome.
