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!

I weave, recently retired and we foster babies so my weaving time is limited, but still I weave. I enjoy receiving your emails, rely on my Yarn Store in a Box as a reference tool not only for yarns you sell, but also yarn I have picked up here and there and I'm not sure about it. Mostly it is a pleasure to do business with you. I find the weaving community to be made up of interesting and wonderful people. I've gotten advice about yarn to purchase from your staff and in a recent snafu in an order, your staff finessed a resolution quickly. I wish I was closer and could come to your shop.
