    Great low maintenance chunky tweed

    This yarn has a vibrant color and knits up beautifully. The stitches are very even and there is only minimal variation in the thickness of the yarn.

    i would not use again

    I made a shrug and it turned out OK but I felt there was too much variation in thickness of yarn and would have preferred something a little softer.

        Comments about Plymouth Yarn Encore Chunky Tweed:

        I've been knitting socks as gifts but this is 1st time I've used this weight. Its really fun to work with, the free pattern I got with it is challenging enough to keep me occupied but not so difficult its frustrating. I would recommend everyone try this yarn for socks.

          This is my FAVORITE for making afghans; it is so soft and knits up quickly for cuddly afghans. Everyone who has recieved one of these afghans as a gift loves the softness and warmth. I have also used this yarn for Project Linus afghans and Tender Loving Care Ministries hats and scarves.

              I used this yarn to loom knit a child's hooded cowl. I doubled this yarn and it was still very playable and soft. This yarn is very easy to work with and I love the colors.

                Encore is my go-to yarn for anything that needs to be washable. It is soft and has a nice woolly feel, but can still go into the washer - a must with anything for kids.

                  I love tweed and this is a very handsome tweed! I used it to make a sweater vest and it handled nicely, felt good in my hands, did not split. It works up very quickly and evenly. It is not overly soft but for this sweater vest that is a plus. I would buy it again.

                    I'm using this yarn to make a diagonal rib scarf for my husband. While the pattern eats up the yarn quickly, it is the perfect masculine texture and look. The yarn is slightly coarse, but I'm pleased with that. It's a beautiful color and feel and I'll definitely purchase this brand again.

                    Arrived very quickly in perfect condition.
