Sorry! I haven't used Sierra. I wouldn't hesitate for a moment to use Encore for it. Probably would be my first choice in an non-wool. I made two Fair Isle sweaters with the dk. I wash and dry them all the time and they look good as new. The childrens' sweaters I've made were mostly Encore, as well. They get thrown in the wash every time they're worn.

You'd have to go with the Encore Bulky, though, for the Starsky.
