    Great low maintenance chunky tweed

    This yarn has a vibrant color and knits up beautifully. The stitches are very even and there is only minimal variation in the thickness of the yarn.

    i would not use again

    I made a shrug and it turned out OK but I felt there was too much variation in thickness of yarn and would have preferred something a little softer.

      Comments about Plymouth Yarn Encore Chunky Tweed:

      I have always loved Encore Tweed and I have never found anything that compares to it. It is another quality yarn in the Encore line and I love that WEBS has the chunky available since you can't always find it everywhere.

      Comments about Plymouth Yarn Encore Chunky Tweed:

      I ordered this blind on the internet when I ran out of yarn while knitting my daughter's Christmas present sweater. I figured it wouldn't matter if the dye lot was a little different because it would be used for the mock turtleneck and not be an actual part of a sleeve, for example. Without even trying, I received the same dye lot. Just delighted.

          Comments about Plymouth Yarn Encore Chunky Tweed:

          I used to knit all of the time, but a major stroke came to me in 2007. I am now a beginner. I have never found anything wrong with any of the products that I have purchased from Plymouth Yarn. It knits better than any yarn that I have ever used, even Cashmere. Do not tangle, easy to get a mistake out if you need too and yarn does not lay flat where it will make a bigger hole in the product that you are making. It is just a great yarn. Cost is good too.

              I've been knitting socks as gifts but this is 1st time I've used this weight. Its really fun to work with, the free pattern I got with it is challenging enough to keep me occupied but not so difficult its frustrating. I would recommend everyone try this yarn for socks.

                This is my FAVORITE for making afghans; it is so soft and knits up quickly for cuddly afghans. Everyone who has recieved one of these afghans as a gift loves the softness and warmth. I have also used this yarn for Project Linus afghans and Tender Loving Care Ministries hats and scarves.

                    I used this yarn to loom knit a child's hooded cowl. I doubled this yarn and it was still very playable and soft. This yarn is very easy to work with and I love the colors.

                      Encore is my go-to yarn for anything that needs to be washable. It is soft and has a nice woolly feel, but can still go into the washer - a must with anything for kids.
