I used swish for 2 wonderful wallabys and I like to knit with the yarn, but I found it pilled alot. Every wash I am using the sweater stone to make the sweater look nice again. I probably wouldn't use this again.

I know Encore isn't an exciting choice but I love it for children's wear because it holds up well when laundered....have you had a problem with it that I haven't had yet?
