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 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.

        Comments about Plymouth Yarn Encore:

        I've used this yarn for hats, mittens and afghans. It works up beautifully either knit or crocheted. I just recently finished a corner-to-corner baby afghan in neon pink and green and it looks great! I will be starting knitted convertible mittens for the girls in my family as Christmas gifts. I love the versatility of this yarn and the wide range of colors. It is also very affordable, especially with WEBS discounts!

          Comments about Plymouth Yarn Encore:

          I have knitted or crocheted three baby afghans with this yarn and am knitting my fourth. A large selection of colors is available and the yardage per skein makes it a good bargain, especially with the discount for buying at a certain level. Everything I have made so far looks great. The mothers report that the afghans wash well and are adored by the respective babies. The yarn is very easy to knit or crochet with and a double strand on size 15 needles works up quickly.

                  First, I love to order online because I know right away if they have the quantity I need in stock (most of my projects take over 12 skeins). I choose Encore because I trust the consistency of the color and don't worry about matching dye lots.

                      I have made several baby afghans with "Encore". It is truly washable. I always wash it before giving it away and it comes out soft and doesn't shrink. The mothers love it because they are not afraid to wash it. The tell me the colors remain true and it doesn't fuzz.
