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!

Light for worsted

Using for sampler afghan, not the kind of thing you can do a swatch for, and have to order more because the squares are working up smaller than they should with worsted weight...Read complete review

Using for sampler afghan, not the kind of thing you can do a swatch for, and have to order more because the squares are working up smaller than they should with worsted weight yarn. Good thing I have plenty of time. Would classify this as light worsted at most. A little rough, but otherwise ok for things that need to be easy care and can use a gauge swatch.

    Comments about Plymouth Yarn Encore:

    This is nice for children's as well as adult items. Good color selection, and dye lots are close, even when I have had to mix them in a project. Very soft against skin. I usually knit sweaters and afghans with it. Tends to get "fuzzy" if washed with a LOT of agitation.

        Comments about Plymouth Yarn Encore:

        First of all, the yarn delivery to my doorstep made getting my project started so easy. If you have the color code then ordering is quick, shipping cost is reasonable, and a few days later the yarn arrives. Next, I love the colors and the fact that it's washable but looks like wool. Encore yarn has worked for my Christmas afghans this year, and my only problem is settling on colors since the choices are so numerous.

            have used Encore, mainly for hats, for many years. It knits up beautifully.
            Because Encore is made in Turkey, I'm going to try USA made Perfection by Kraemer. Haven't used it yet.

            Comments about Plymouth Yarn Encore:

            This is a great all purpose yarn. It has a much nicer feel than an entirely acrylic yarn. The wool makes a big difference in warmth as well. You really can wash it and just toss it in the dryer. That's why I love using it for children's items.

            Service and delivery comments:

            It arrived in a timely manner, but I absolutely hate paying for shipping. If this site offered free shipping, I'd order a lot more often. Maybe it's good they don't.

                Comments about Plymouth Yarn Encore:

                I love Encore for a basic inexpensive yarn. It has a little bit of wool which gives it a nice feel. It's very soft and knits up beautifully. It comes in a large variety of colors. It is great for kids items and afghans. It's easy to care for by just throwing it in the wasing machine.
