I purchased 18 skeins of this yarn in Meadow Heather to knit a blanket. It came out beautifully...until I washed it (according to directions). It now pills and sheds horribly--there are red (yes, red: I presume from the "heather" aspect?) pills all over our house, and thus clothes, and it is only getting worse with each wash. I am seriously considering throwing the blanket away, which makes me extremely disappointed.

Lovely Yarn

By L Smith

Comments about Plymouth Yarn Encore Chunky:

I bought Plymouth Encore Chunky as a substitute for a sweater I knitted for my mother. It knitted up beautifully and it's very comfortable to wear as it's mostly acrylic.
The only draw back is the guard hairs on the yarn shed a bit.

                      I've used this yarn for shawls and baby blankets
                      It's soft and warm. Parents love it as it's washable.

                      Service and delivery comments:

                      Perfect. Needed it pronto and it came in 2 days.
                      So thankful.

                        Comments about Plymouth Yarn Encore Chunky:

                        This isn't really as bulky as I'd expected but for average use it's quite serviceable. Colors are vibrant and it washes well. For an average priced yarn it's adequate but does feel very much like an acrylic man made fiber. (For colorful amigurumi dolls it would be quite nice.) I made a sweater using larger size 13 needles which resulted in a product that felt airy and light, but next item I will probably use smaller needles so the stitches lay better. All in all a nice, serviceable product.

                          nice bulky yarn that knits up very well. Easy to knit with - no splitting, twisting, or tension issues. Just wish there were a more dynamic range of colors.
