    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:

      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.

        Comments about Plymouth Yarn Encore Chunky Tweed:

        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.

          Comments about Plymouth Yarn Encore Chunky Tweed:

          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.

          Comments about Plymouth Yarn Encore Chunky Tweed:

          I've used several different hat patterns and two scarf patterns (all with cables) that turned out so well, I'm making more for Christmas. I enjoy knitting with this yarn and recommend it for those just beginning to knit cables. This yarn allows you to see what you've done easily and allows for tinking.

          Service and delivery comments:

          As always, delivery was prompt. Yarn arrived in packaging to ensure no damage. My only concern for those buying yarn via internet for the first time: be careful regarding color. Computer monitors/tablets may not show the true color which in no way reflects poorly upon Webs.

            I knitted a multi cable hat (my first hat ever) with FAB results. The yarn is very forgiving and the stitch definition is just wonderful. I'm going to buy more as everyone that catches sight of this hat wants one.
