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!

I use this yarn to add a pop of neon to knit hats and mittens. The problem I have is that it is an itchy, scratchy yarn so I can only use it for the top of the hat (the part that doesn't touch skin)

It doesn't feel nice to knit with and doesn't have much stretch.

The reason I keep using is because it comes in bright neon colors and it is a worsted weight. It is also a good price.

    Comments about Plymouth Yarn Encore:

    I have made hats and scarves, but I have enjoyed making several afghans with Encore. There are so many colors to choose from (more in worsted). I particularly like afghans with Encore because they machine wash and dry so easily!!! They seem to become softer with washing; which I like.

                    Comments about Plymouth Yarn Encore:

                    I've used this yarn for many projects - sweaters, scarves, hats, children's clothing. I like the feel of it. It's soft, and easy to work with. It has good stitch definition and blocks well. And because it is only part wool, it doesn't itch. The machine washability is also nice.

                    Service and delivery comments:

                    The yarn arrived in perfect condition. I order almost all of my wool and knitting tools from Webs. Their service is excellent and I usually order enough to take advantage of their discounts.
