This is the softest yarn!

This yarn is so very soft and wonderful for baby items! I made a beautiful sweater, hat and sock set for a friend who will be having a baby soon and I could not be more pleased with the finished product!

Just what I expected - and at a sale price

I like using Plymouth Encore Worsted yarn. When I saw it was on sale in your website, I purchased some for a planned project later in the year.

GoTo Yarn

I knit for Alice’s Embrace which is a prayer shawl/lap blanket gifting organization for loved one’s with Alzheimer’s Disease. Plymouth Encore is absolutely my goto yarn. Alpaca Direct customer service has always been top-notch with very fast delivery.

It worked up beautifully. Made stocking hats for my son in law who wears his to bed and to my grandson who is a new marine in MP school in Missouri! They both loved them.
