I purchased 18 skeins of this yarn in Meadow Heather to knit a blanket. It came out beautifully...until I washed it (according to directions). It now pills and sheds horribly--there are red (yes, red: I presume from the "heather" aspect?) pills all over our house, and thus clothes, and it is only getting worse with each wash. I am seriously considering throwing the blanket away, which makes me extremely disappointed.

Comments about Plymouth Yarn Encore Chunky:

Using it to make an afghan and it is soft and cozy. It reminds me of Lion Brand Woolease thick and quick, but seems a bit softer. Knits up quick.

      Comments about Plymouth Yarn Encore Chunky:

      Making 6 afghans this year for my 6 Grandchildren's birthdays. I found Encore Chunky to be soft, easy and fast to knit with. Best of all easy care, being machine washable and dryable; important for those going off to college soon, where wool may have come back home half the original size...lol!

        I have used this yarn for many years and the children's products have been passed down and around. Machine washes and dries without fading, pilling, changing shape.a great all around yarn. Love it.

        Comments about Plymouth Yarn Encore Chunky:

        This yarn consistently provides what I need for beautiful afghans. The colors blend very nicely, the bulky nature of the yarn allows projects to fly. This yarn is machine wash/dry, making it very practical as well.

        Comments about Plymouth Yarn Encore Chunky:

        The yarn is soft and warm. Given its bulky nature, it works up fast (I am working on knitted and crochet afghans with this yarn). The colors are vibrant and they blend together well. I love the fact that there is some wool in the yarn and that it can be machine washed and dried.

        • Splits

        Best Uses

        • Hats
        • Scarves
        • Sweaters

        Comments about Plymouth Yarn Encore Chunky:

        I do a LOT of charity knits, mainly hats and scarves for a local homeless outreach program, and Encore and Encore Chunky are the foundation of that work. They're machine washable, durable, warm but breathable and dry quickly -- which is a major concern for those who may be living in the rough. And for a higher end yarn, the price is friendly for such work, especially if you can find it on sale (or if you order enough to qualify for the discount). The same qualities that make it uniquely suited to my work also make it excellent for children's items.

        If there is a down side to this yarn, it is that the heathered colors tend to be a little bit "splitty". Hardly the worst I've encountered, but enough to make it worth noting.
