Great low maintenance chunky tweed

This yarn has a vibrant color and knits up beautifully. The stitches are very even and there is only minimal variation in the thickness of the yarn.

i would not use again

I made a shrug and it turned out OK but I felt there was too much variation in thickness of yarn and would have preferred something a little softer.

        This was just the yarn I was looking for. I've only made a hat so far so I can't comment on how it will wash but I enjoyed using it for my small project.

          I am still in the process of knitting a sweater with this yarn. It's nice and soft. It has just enough tweedy fibers to give some texture but not too much. So far (I'm on the third skein) no knots or flaws in the yarn. I hope it washes well without pilling. Then I'll rate it perfect!

              I love the yarn. I bought it to make a sweater and as soon as i opened it i fell in love with it. The yarn was far better than expected. The yarn is soft and warm. Im almost done with the sweater and if i can i will definetely add a picture of the finished product

              Service and delivery comments:

              Customer service was fast and very helpful. Delivery was also very fast and im in california.

                I have always loved Encore Tweed and I have never found anything that compares to it. It is another quality yarn in the Encore line and I love that WEBS has the chunky available since you can't always find it everywhere.

                I ordered this blind on the internet when I ran out of yarn while knitting my daughter's Christmas present sweater. I figured it wouldn't matter if the dye lot was a little different because it would be used for the mock turtleneck and not be an actual part of a sleeve, for example. Without even trying, I received the same dye lot. Just delighted.
