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!

Encore has changed somewhat....i could notice the acrylic

wishing the quality hadn't changed somewhat, because Encore has always been my go to kids yarn that didn't lock or feel cheap and acrylic....now some of the colors do show the acrylic...Read complete review

    I'm making my warp for a new blanket. This is the third blanket I have made using Encore and I chose this yarn because it was successful before. I like that it has a wool content which adds warmth but it is also machine washable.

                  I actually prefer the feel when knitting with wool. Probably next time I make this Great American Aran afghan I would use the Cascade Superwash. The project isn't quite finished yet, hence, I don't have a picture of my finished project.

                    This is a great 'all purpose' yarn. I made several sweaters for my kids when they were small using Encore, and they were durable, soft, and easy care. Now it is my 'go-to' yarn for prayer shawls for those same reasons, plus the color choices are fantastic.

                        I used the Encore to make a few children's hats as well as cozy and heavier weight socks. I did use this yarn years ago for a sweater and it pilled quite a bit. Even with socks and regular washing/drying it pills.
