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 make a lot of afghans and blankets but have given up using this yarn. It's readily available so easy to find but it just pills and fuzzes forever. It's nice that it's machine washable but every time I do so I have to spend 1/2 hr or more clipping pills off the article. And I think it loses stitch definition over time.

In spite of it being so easy to find, I think I'm just moving on.

      Comments about Plymouth Yarn Encore:

      I found this yarn in a local store. They only had a few skeins, but after standing there deliberating for over an hour, I decided it was just the color I had to have. I make afghans, so a few skeins just isn't going to go far.
      I ordered more from online and hoped that the dye lots would be close enough to not be noticeable.
      When I put the two lots together, I can't tell that they were made at separate times even though they were. One lot even has different colored labels than the other.
      It is also very nice to crochet with.

      Service and delivery comments:

      Item arrived very quickly.

        I choose to use this yarn for a toddler sweater because it's washable, beautiful colors and soft.
        I'm finding it easy and enjoyable to knit with and will buy it again for other projects.

                      I've used this yarn for hats, mittens and afghans. It works up beautifully either knit or crocheted. I just recently finished a corner-to-corner baby afghan in neon pink and green and it looks great! I will be starting knitted convertible mittens for the girls in my family as Christmas gifts. I love the versatility of this yarn and the wide range of colors. It is also very affordable, especially with WEBS discounts!

                        I have knitted or crocheted three baby afghans with this yarn and am knitting my fourth. A large selection of colors is available and the yardage per skein makes it a good bargain, especially with the discount for buying at a certain level. Everything I have made so far looks great. The mothers report that the afghans wash well and are adored by the respective babies. The yarn is very easy to knit or crochet with and a double strand on size 15 needles works up quickly.
