It resists shrinkage, so garments do not shrink to any noticeable degree. This is important as I am a dense knitter, and a sweater may contain more than five thousand stitches all by hand. Therefore like most knitters I want to know my work will last and look well a long time, wash after wash. The yarn is quite washable by machine or hand. It compares favorably to superwash wool, except encore resists shrinkage better, and is not itchy.
If in doubt about a color, many web sites have online color cards of this yarn to compare. Plymouth the maker of encore yarn has an online color card of these yarns. They may have more than one shade of the same color, so order carefully to ensure you get the color you actually want. Yarn is machine washable, choose delicate cycle.
Washing should be done in warm water with a mild soap, remove promptly..Best to shape and lay flat to dry. Other Items I made a few years ago, still look as good as when I first made them.
I like the way this colorway (7518) works up. The associated photo is a spot-on representation of what it looks like when knitted. I have made both slippers and mittens with this yarn and both recipients thought they were great. They 'o-o-o'ed and 'a-a-h'ed and thought I'd gone to a lot of trouble to make the stripes. I don't plan to disabuse them of that thought! :-D I plan to use up the leftover yarn to make a cap to match the mittens.
