      This yarn is soft, crochets very well and the colors are beautiful! I got a few of the multicolored ones and they made beautiful hats. I am looking forward to trying some of the ombre ones.

                      Comments about Plymouth Yarn Encore Colorspun:

                      I love the colors in this yarn. My friend, for whom it was a gift, also loves the colors. She has used this yarn frequently, and says it handles beautifully and the items (scarves, mittens, and hats) that she has made with it are warm and cozy.

                      I can't use this yarn, because it contains wool and I am allergic to wool. But if I could use wool, this yarn would be one of my go-to choices, for the beauty of the colors and the softness of the yarn.

                        This yarn is excellent for those multiple baby showers. This yarn makes a quick (when doubled) and washable baby blanket. Apparently durable, as I was recently told a 4 year old still carries the baby blanket I made for his mother's shower to day care EVERYDAY.
