Perfect yarn when knitting for kids

I used Encore to knit twin-size afghans for my three grandkids. Patterns show up great and there are many cool colors to choose from.

I make a lot of afghans and blankets but have given up using this yarn. It's readily available so easy to find but it just pills and fuzzes forever. It's nice that it's machine washable but every time I do so I have to spend 1/2 hr or more clipping pills off the article. And I think it loses stitch definition over time.

In spite of it being so easy to find, I think I'm just moving on.

      Comments about Plymouth Yarn Encore:

      First, I love to order online because I know right away if they have the quantity I need in stock (most of my projects take over 12 skeins). I choose Encore because I trust the consistency of the color and don't worry about matching dye lots.

          Comments about Plymouth Yarn Encore:

          I have made several baby afghans with "Encore". It is truly washable. I always wash it before giving it away and it comes out soft and doesn't shrink. The mothers love it because they are not afraid to wash it. The tell me the colors remain true and it doesn't fuzz.

                I got this to make a scarf for xmas. I made it with a fisherman's ribs. The yarn has good stitch definition, does not unravel, not does it splits. So far so good.

                      I love to make Nordic type sweaters with all of their beautiful and colorful patterns. This works beautifully and allows the sweaters to be machine washed and dried. Handles like wool but easy care.

                        I always keep a healthy stash of Encore Worsted Weight yarn ... it is the best go-to yarn out there. I purchase singles etc., I recently needed to knit a quick baby afghan. No need to shop for yarn because I had Encore in all of the primary colors already :) How handy to have for one skein projects as well, a quick cowl, wristers, and on and on ... LOVE this yarn. Plus it is machine washable so a non-knitter can easily care for it.

                          The yarn speaks for itself. It is the only yarn I have used to make baby blankets since it is machine washable. The main reason I am writing this review is about WEBS - the customer service is fantastic. I could not have asked for better help and guidance on choosing the right color for my project.
