        The colors in this yarn are beautiful - I got the teal with variegated shades of such and hightlights of greens, perfect for my great nieces request for "teal/ocean colors" for her newborn! I made several baby "sacs" and an afghan for her - perfect color for boy or girl!

            Have used Plymouth Encore yarn for many years and have always been very happy with the results. The colorspun yarn is beautiful, made a baby sweater with it and the self-striping made it unique and very pretty

                Comments about Plymouth Yarn Encore Colorspun:

                I didn't know until I knitted many rows that this is a self-striping yarn. That isn't a negative for my use but it may not suit some knitters. Picture online looks like only blue/white, but there is some blue/gray inside the skein.
                I like the feel of this yarn and I hope it continues to have this quality after washing.

                  Comments about Plymouth Yarn Encore Colorspun:

                  I love Encore because it is reasonably priced, machine washable for easy care and comes in a large variety of colors. I use Encore for hats, gloves and blankets and it never disappoints!

                  Service and delivery comments:

                  The Web's website is easy to use and the deliveries are always prompt. I've ordered from some yarn discount suppliers and it took forever for my yarn to arrive and when it did, it was in terrible condition (dusty and one skein had been snagged on something before packaging). No more straying. I'm definitely a Web's customer for life.

                  Comments about Plymouth Yarn Encore Colorspun:

                  With a large family (5 married children and soon to be eleven grandchildren), I spend a great deal of pleasurable time knitting for others: afghans, scarves, sweaters,
                  place mats, etc. I only use quality yarns and seek to purchase my yarns at times when the price of the yarn is most reasonable. Colorspun has been a favorite yarn for a long time!

                    This yarn is soft, crochets very well and the colors are beautiful! I got a few of the multicolored ones and they made beautiful hats. I am looking forward to trying some of the ombre ones.
