      My assessment of this yarn is probably colored by the fact that it did not turn out to be right for my project, which was an afghan. It is simply too light weight for that. I also found the color to be really boring.

          My delivery was prompt but I guess I gave the wrong number for color - wanted denium and received navy. Did not want to return - too much trouble.

              I make sweaters-lots of them and hats. I used this yarn for both. I loved working with them, and the recipients of the finished products were delighted with them.

                Yarn suggested for the sweater in a magazine, worked up beautifully, and looks just like the photo in the mag. So both my grandsons have fox sweaters for xmas.

                  Comments about Plymouth Yarn Encore Tweed:

                  I have a huge cupboard filled with many many colors of this yarn. I like that it has some wool but is machine washable. My daughter is a nurse-midwife and I have crocheted hundreds of baby hats for the babies she delivers. It makes great baby blankets also. I love beautiful wool yarns of all kinds, but Encore fills the need for a washable yarn in a jillion colors.

                      I made a cable hoodie with an intricate pattern. What a total pleasure to knit with this yarn. I was worried about the acrylic fiber, but was making it for a friend with wool sensitivities- didn't need to worry. It shows stitch definition perfectly even though it is a bit of a dark color! The yarn is very, very soft and the weight is lovely- heavy enough for a fall sweater. Most people would think that the sweater is all wool. I could NOT be happier with this product.

                        After knitting a baby sweater in the pink I ordered the green to make a sweater for myself
                        Great yarn for the money :)
