        My first purchase of Encore Chunky impresses me. It is soft and has a nice hand without much of the acrylic feel. Very comfortable next to skin and I'd readily use it for baby clothes and children's sweaters. Love the variety of colors available.

        I got this to knit a hat for a friend. There are some good things about this yarn - it is soft, comes in many pretty colors, inexpensive... BUT it does not work for hats - or this pattern anyway - There is no stretch so my hat is coming out HUGE and more like a bowl that sits on your head than the warm snuggly hat I wanted to hug your head. Disappointed.

        I am working on a chunky sweater and really enjoying knitting with this yarn! It knits up fast and is as smooth as butter to work with!

              While I am still learning how to read patterns, this yarn has been very forgiving, with all of my tear outs. I would buy this yarn again.

                    A bit...sproingy for my taste, even compared to other acrylic blends and pure acrylics I've used. My floppy hat will not flop, but springs back up to a point. Good color range is probably the biggest plus. I think this would be ok for bigger items like sweaters and scarves, which allow for more drape.

                            Encore I have found is the best yarn for knitting you don't have knots in it. Works great for heavy socks, sweaters, hats. I hate it when I buy yarn and there are pieces tied together. I don't like paying for junk yarn. Encore yarn is a good price too.

                            A wonderful product. For knitting large items: men's sweaters, afghans, would love to have more yardage on each ball. Not so many knots that way. A wonderful product anyway. Washes well.

                              I am making a sweater with Encore Chunky with the grape color with a border of white yarn. The contrast between the two colors works well.
