Overall Encore Tweed Rating: 4.6 out of 5 stars (4.6 based on 14 reviews)

Easy to work with Plymouth Encore Tweed 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
I'm making a long sweater with color 0217, black with flecks of white and tan will allow it to be worn with other colors. It is easy to work with even for beginners who are ripping out almost as much as they are knitting! Good price for good yarn. Believe it or not, I had originally bought this yarn locally as I hadn't knit in over 35 yrs and felt like a beginner. I needed more yarn and local shop in SC did not have enough or any in same dye lot. I ordered this from Jimmy Beans Wool and unbelievably received the same dye lot as the original I had. I never even asked because I thought it would be impossible. Thanks Jimmy Beans Wool for your great service too. I'll be back.

Hats, hats,hats! 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
I knit all my grandchildren hats for Christmas....that is 7 hats. Also knitted hats for my 2 sisters. Encore is the best all round. Great to work with, and turns out consistently great looking projects. Ask my grandchildren!

Encore Tweed Grape Jam 4 out of 5 stars (4 out of 5)
I made a hat/scarf/mitts set for my granddaughter out of Encore Tweed in Grape Jam last Fall as a Christmas present. This yarn is bouncy and full of life. It steam blocked beautifully, and made a gift I was proud to give. If you're on Ravelry, you can see the hat at: http://www.ravelry.com/projects/lostarts/mobius-hat I'm sure I would love some 100% wool yarn better, but this is more economical and I love this yarn and can't wait to make something in the blue tweed!
