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!

I have been knitting afghans for my granddaughter (and others) for many many years. She uses them as her "buddy" and I have probably given her on an average of one a year for more than ten years. (By the end of the year, they are pretty well ruined because she "fingers them.)
When I started with Encore, it was soft and rather fluffy. I feel the quality has deteriorated through the years to where it's not the soft yarn it used to be. I am reluctant to change yarns because it is so familiar to me now . . . and there are good qualities. I have knitted afghans with other colors which seem to be softer (or maybe they have gotten coarser by now) but white is definitely not what it used to be. Not sure I would recommend it to a friend.

    I purchased this yarn to make Christmas stockings and the yarn was lovely to work with. The tension was very good and the end product turned out beautifully.

      Comments about Plymouth Yarn Encore:

      I do a LOT of charity knits, mainly hats and scarves for a local homeless outreach program, and Encore and Encore Chunky are the foundation of that work. They're machine washable, durable, warm but breathable and dry quickly -- which is a major concern for those who may be living in the rough. And for a higher end yarn, the price is friendly for such work, especially if you can find it on sale (or if you order enough to qualify for the discount). The same qualities that make it uniquely suited to my work also make it excellent for children's items.

      If there is a down side to this yarn, it is that the heathered colors tend to be a little bit "splitty". Hardly the worst I've encountered, but enough to make it worth noting.
