    Perfect yarn when knitting for kids

    I used Encore to knit twin-size afghans for my three grandkids. Patterns show up great and there are many cool colors to choose from.

    I make a lot of afghans and blankets but have given up using this yarn. It's readily available so easy to find but it just pills and fuzzes forever. It's nice that it's machine washable but every time I do so I have to spend 1/2 hr or more clipping pills off the article. And I think it loses stitch definition over time.

    In spite of it being so easy to find, I think I'm just moving on.

        Worked very well making a hoody for 6 yr. old, in spite of several errors that required taking out and reknitting. Yarn looks great, is a perfect color and weight.

                    This is my work horse yarn - I know the colors are true and the weight is good, it feels good to knit with. Larger projects feel softer. I use this for almost anything.

                        Useful for children's and infant's garments, because the wool content is small. Wool is sometimes a problem for children. Encore is soft enough so there is not the scratchy feel that children complain about with wool. It has nice body and washes and blocks well. I do not machine wash it.

                          This is a great yarn for any sort of article. It's comes in a lot of colors, has good body and knits well. I have used it for years - it's a "go to" yarn, especially for things that need to be washable and dryable.
