    I made a cable hoodie with an intricate pattern. What a total pleasure to knit with this yarn. I was worried about the acrylic fiber, but was making it for a friend with wool sensitivities- didn't need to worry. It shows stitch definition perfectly even though it is a bit of a dark color! The yarn is very, very soft and the weight is lovely- heavy enough for a fall sweater. Most people would think that the sweater is all wool. I could NOT be happier with this product.

    My assessment of this yarn is probably colored by the fact that it did not turn out to be right for my project, which was an afghan. It is simply too light weight for that. I also found the color to be really boring.

      I have used Encore for years. It definitely has improved since my first experience with this yarn. This is my go to yarn for all baby items I knit mostly because it can be washed.

                All was well except that I do not like skeins of yarn that do not pull from the center. Nothing is more frustrating that having to "re-roll" a skein of yarn. All three skeins were the same... Do Not Like :(

                      I was using old yarn to make baby sweaters and ran out. Even though you did not have the same dye lot, it matched perfectly.

                        I bought 5 skeins of this yarn at a local yarn shop - all they had. Then I found the perfect pattern - but I needed 7 skeins. I ordered two more skeins, and of course they were a different dye lot, but they still matched perfectly! The yarn knits smoothly and shows the lace pattern beautifully. I will be using this again- maybe for a sweater for my granddaughter.
