    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.

                  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.

                            This is one of the best workhorse yarns out there. Plymouth has continued to produce a great quality chunky yarn and I love that WEBS has made it available for a great price! I only wish there was more of a color selection.
