I am very disappointed that so far every skein I have used has a knot where two yarns have been tied together -- thus keeping my "what would have been one piece lovely cowl" from being a one piece without knot cowl.

    Comments about Plymouth Yarn Encore Colorspun:

    I selected Encore Colorspun for Sarah James' Piggy Back Squares baby blanket because it is machine washable and dryable, has long runs of color with gradual shifts, and is a worsted weight. There are very few yarns that have all three of these qualities. The gradual color shifts show off the mitered squares without being gaudy. Though not particularly soft, Colorspun seems sturdy and durable. I image this blanket being used to put under baby on a floor or as a top layer for warmth, but not next to a newborn's skin. It is evenly spun and easy to work with. I encountered no knots in the five skeins I used.

                Lovely Yarn

                By TT

                from Houston, TX

                About Me Enthusiast, Novice

                See all my reviews

                Comments about Plymouth Yarn Encore Colorspun:

                I made a seed stitch scarf out of the Berry Grape color, and it is just lovely! I love the subtle color change that resulted from the color-changing ply. It is beautiful yarn. And bonus, machine washable, so that's awesome. The quality seemed great, I had no issues with splitting or knots, very minimal shedding and twisting. It was a joy to knit with.

                As a word of warning, though, I also purchased the Grey Ombre color for a different project and was disappointed by the color when I saw it. The change from light to dark is way more subtle than I expected based on the picture. If I was rating this yarn based on the Grey Ombre alone, it would not get a 5 from me because of that. The Berry Grape is gorgeous though.
