Plymouth Encore Worsted Yarn description:
For years we resisted yarn with acrylic content because frankly it just didn't look nice or feel good. There was always that slightly “scrunchy/shiny thing” going on. But when we found Encore we became converts (well... partial converts anyway). Customers love Plymouth Encore and with good reason. This tried-and-true machine washable yarn is a classic for afghans, blankets and sweaters. Encore is soft enough for children's sweaters, yet tough enough to be washed time and time again with great results. Use in any pattern calling for worsted weight yarn, and with 40 colors to choose from, you'll never run out of projects to do in Encore!
Weavers: A great pattern weft with / Pearl Cotton set at 10 epi
WPI: 11 Tabby: 8epi Twill: 10-12 epi
Knitters: An economical standard for your favorite Classics.
I ordered an assortment of rug wool yarns to get a sense of the color range and to feel the texture. They are beautiful, the colors are both vibrant and subtle and the texture is sturdy.
