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 really dislike this yarn. Not feels like the cheapest acrylic, it's hard to believe it has any wool in it at all. I won't use again. I had hoped the wool content would add some life and bounce to it but it did not.
