    Comments about Plymouth Yarn Encore Colorspun:

    This yarn is excellent for those multiple baby showers. This yarn makes a quick (when doubled) and washable baby blanket. Apparently durable, as I was recently told a 4 year old still carries the baby blanket I made for his mother's shower to day care EVERYDAY.

      Comments about Plymouth Yarn Encore Colorspun:

      I knit baby blankets and lap robes.
      I love the small amount of wool incorporated into the acrylic.
      Not so great: The tangled mess at the end of each skein.

          I use this product for Afghans and the striping is beautiful. The weight is perfect and easy to use. It does not split or fuzz up. I bought this yarn on my own because I liked 3 of the colors and have all 3 of them. Also like Plymouth yarn for my projects and love it Would surely recommend this to anyone that loves to knit or crochet with an easy to use yarn.

                    I am making an afghan with it and it is so easy to use. I am using the Grape Ombre and the colors are beautiful. It just seems to float over the hook. I find nothing wrong with this yarn infact I just purchased more of it in a different color.
