I made all the boys' sweaters out of Encore. It is my go-to yarn when I want to knit something completely washable.
In fact, two of my Fair Isle sweaters were made of Encore dk because it was handy and they were my first attempts. I love them--they're soft, not pilly and I can throw them in the washer and dryer.
