Encore has always been my "go to" for sweaters. It has always been high quality. However, of the 25 skeins I ordered this time, at least 15 had frayed places in the middle of the skein, not just one, but numerous places. I love Encore all of them, and will continue to use it, but this latest order had me a little upset with the quality. I hope this will improve.

      I'm using this yarn to crochet a large sweater for my sister. She fell in love with the tweediness and the neutral mushroom color. This will be her go to cardigan whenever the classroom gets cold.

          Needed this yarn to finish a project (had half a skein and thought it was enough). So glad Webs had it!! Made a nice baby sweater but would be a nice yarn for a scarf or mittens.

          I made a sweater as a "gift", but it was too coarse and so I put it in the give-away bag. I then made a hat and mittens with the remainder, and they are fine. Looks good, but not something I would want next to my skin.

          Knits up very nicely (baby blanket). Could be softer.

          Comments about 6.49 Encore Tweed:

          i am not sure why I thought this would work well for a blanket except that it was heavier weight than I usually use. It is doing OK, I am not done yet. It had to be washable, and I may be happier after it is washed. It is scratchier than I expected since it is largely acrylic ... sigh the I would recommend it question at the end throws me, since for a different use it might be fine, I just would not recommend it for something next to skin. So I will say no, but in the right circumstance it would be fine....

            I knit a Gansey afghan, and it turned our beautifully. It is a wedding gift for my Godson. I liked the results so well, I plan to make another one for myself. I used the granola color. I thought it would be more brownish, instead it took on a grey tone. Not sure I'd eat granola if it was that color. That being said, the bride's decorating colors turned out to be in the neutral to grey tones, so I lucked out!!! The skeins were nice -- I don't remember coming across any knots, so if there were any, they were few..

                This is a great yarn! It's my first choice when knitting sweaters for my husband and son. It's machine washable and boy-proof! I love the acrylic and wool blend. Makes for easy care. The yarn has a beautiful twist and really shows off the cable stitches.

                I just wish that it was offered in different weights. Like a lighter sport or DK weight.
