    I made a cable hoodie with an intricate pattern. What a total pleasure to knit with this yarn. I was worried about the acrylic fiber, but was making it for a friend with wool sensitivities- didn't need to worry. It shows stitch definition perfectly even though it is a bit of a dark color! The yarn is very, very soft and the weight is lovely- heavy enough for a fall sweater. Most people would think that the sweater is all wool. I could NOT be happier with this product.

    My assessment of this yarn is probably colored by the fact that it did not turn out to be right for my project, which was an afghan. It is simply too light weight for that. I also found the color to be really boring.

    Second sweater from Encore Tweed

      Comments about Plymouth Yarn Encore Tweed:

      I made the first sweater for myself; used the pattern The Wonderful Wallaby with the modifications of no pocket and no hood. To clean the sweater I machine wash and dry flat on sweater drying rack; it has retained its shape. It doesn't pill which I really appreciate. My sister-in-law loved the color and pattern and I am making a sweater for her.

            I have used Encore for years. It definitely has improved since my first experience with this yarn. This is my go to yarn for all baby items I knit mostly because it can be washed.

                I have made several afghans with Plymouth Encore and Encore Tweed...each time I have been very satisfied. There is a good choice of colors and being machine washable is a great bonus!

                      All was well except that I do not like skeins of yarn that do not pull from the center. Nothing is more frustrating that having to "re-roll" a skein of yarn. All three skeins were the same... Do Not Like :(
