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!

Light for worsted

Using for sampler afghan, not the kind of thing you can do a swatch for, and have to order more because the squares are working up smaller than they should with worsted weight...Read complete review

Using for sampler afghan, not the kind of thing you can do a swatch for, and have to order more because the squares are working up smaller than they should with worsted weight yarn. Good thing I have plenty of time. Would classify this as light worsted at most. A little rough, but otherwise ok for things that need to be easy care and can use a gauge swatch.

      Not USA made.
      Nice yarn and I have knitted up a lot of it.
      There is a USA made yarn (can't remember the name) and I will try that.
      But, I have liked Encore.

          Making a child's sweater and no evidence it is going to pill. The feel is lovely to work with. Her Mom will love the washability of it!

            I bought the Encore for a 3-color stripey blanket. I hadn't used it for a few years, and was pleasantly reminded how much I like this yarn. It feels wooly, even with 76% acrylic.

                Comments about Plymouth Yarn Encore:

                I use Plymouth Encore for anything I knit for men, kids, people who are wool-sensitive (it's only 25% wool), and people who...let's say...aren't the easiest on their knitwear. It's a good blend, wonderful to work with, is machine washable/dryable, and holds up well to rough treatment. As the title of this review says, this is my go-to yarn for just about any gift project I make.

                  I'm using this yarn to make a couple of childrens' afghans. It's great to work with, has a nice soft texture, but most importantly, is machine wash and dry. Perfect for a child's piece.
