"I recently knitted a lovely shrug with Shine Worsted.  It came out beautifully, made in this oh-so-soft to the touch worsted weight yarn.  What do I love about this yarn?  First of all, a soft, very smooth texture that doesn't pill.  Next, the price!  I knit my entire shrug for under $20 - wow!!  The yarn is comfortable year round and is really wonderful to work with.  I will definitely use this yarn again!"  -Natalie, Knit Picks customer

I wanted to see what is this knitting with cotton about... I love it! knitted couple of toys. I love how soft it is, how nicely it knits. usually I knit in baby alpaca or alpaca so I am used to extreme softness. This cotton did not let me down. Ordered it in many colors, all are beautiful. I could wish only one thing, bigger skeins, 100 g would do nicely, simply for less connecting. :D

This is my absolute favourite yarn. So smooth and soft and squishy. I made a giant afghan out of it and while it was expensive to make it's my favourite blanket. Cool enough to nap under in the summer and warm for winter. I have made a baby sweater out of it with no problem but I can see as PP said why it might not keep its shape in adult clothing. For blankets, pillow covers, and baby stuff - tops!

I used Shine in Currant to knit a shrug, it was the perfect match for a pair of grey/burgundy linen slacks. But - so disappointing, it fuzzes really badly, has now been washed and dried twice with no improvement and has ruined 2 white tops. I am assuming that the plant fibers are the problem. What a waste of money and time. Not the usual quality that I get from Knit Picks.

This yarn is the softest cotton blend I've ever felt! It's beautiful and shiny and soft, soft, soft. I originally bought some to make dishcloths with, but I loved it so much that I bought more to make a baby blanket for a friend. Shine is going to be my go-to cotton blend from now on. I love it!

I just finished using this yarn to crochet a scarf for a friend. I used Currant (which was a little darker than I originally thought it would be) and Cream for the border (I had bought Robot but did not like the way it looked with the currant upon arrival). I really enjoyed using this yarn. It is quite soft, not very splitty and did not dry out my hands like most cotton yarns do. I do wish it came in 100g balls and perhaps a darker grey color but that is not a deal breaker. I will look into using this the next time I have a baby blanket that needs to be made.

I commissioned a baby blanket and the knitter chose this yarn. One wash and it looks like complete junk. It's faded and pulled already. What a waste of my money. Very disappointed.

I bought this yarn for a pair of baby boots I crocheted, and they came out perfect! The yarn is soft and just stretchy enough to give a little room to grow. I had crocheted a swatch and washed several times, and it held up very well. I'm very pleased and will be buying again. I only wish these came in slightly bigger skeins!

I absolutely love this yarn as far as texture, washability, softness and "knitability"(smooth, non splitting, etc.). However, the colors listed and descriptions are not even close to what color they really are. The platinum, I just received is a sort of odd pale greenish and the robot (an earlier purchase) was not brown or grey. Today I am disappointed because by the time I take off the return shipping charges, it's worth it to just stash it.

I can't say enough about this yarn. I used the sport weight to make a lace baby blanket for my son and I continue to be amazed at the softness and drape of it. I just finished crocheting a cardigan for my daughter in the worsted weight and again, it's lovely. I launder it gently and hang to dry and it has been wonderful.

OMG!!! Love, love, LOVE this yarn!!! I haven't been able to knit with cotton yarns for a couple years due to worsening arthritis, but this has just enough spring and give that I can knit comfortably with it for HOURS! Yes!!! The colors are gorgeous, with a lovely sheen that looks like silk, plus beautiful drape and stitch definition. And so so soft! This is my new favorite spring/summer yarn, and I plan on making tons of tanks and tees with Shine this summer. Totally happy customer, again!

I bought this along with CotLin and Dishie to experiment and see which I would like to use to make some decent placemats. I bought the Shine Worsted by mistake; I wanted the sport weight. However, I knit up a dishcloth with this stuff and loved knitting with it, loved the feel and the look of it. I believe this is what I'm going to be using. It isn't flimsy, so I don't have to double the yarn and it's washable and I think it will look great.

I purchased one skein of 14 different colors for a baby blanket, and am very pleased with it! All the colors look great together, and the weight of the yarn makes for a quick knit. It's soft and doesn't split easily. Best thing . . . I can make a baby item for my cousins in Texas without hurting my hands! Usually cotton hurts and I can't knit with it for long, but the Modal in Shine Worsted gives it enough bounce to go easy on the knitter. From a sweater I made for my mom many, many years ago, I know the yarn washes and holds up well. Now both my girls want blankets!

I used this yarn for the first time to make a sweater for myself. It looked beautiful when I finished it and I was proud and pleased to wear it on a damp but warm day. It seemed to get larger by the minute. I haven't put it back on since because it now looks like it was made for someone nearly twice my size.

Love this yarn! It is now my go-to choice whenever I want a cotton blend, particularly for baby things. It has a lovely texture and just the right amount of give. I love the feel of it. I have tried the comfy and it is nice--but shine is the winner. Just wish there were more color choices

This yarn is lovely to work with. It is so soft and holds its shape very well. I"ll be using it a lot more.

Loved this yarn. Was doing a tricky pattern and had to do a lot of ripping out; the yarn held up well and did not separate.

I adore this yarn! It works up so nicely, the stitches are so nice and crisp, and it's so soft! All my baby projects will be made of this from now on!

I have to say, I was a little disappointed with this yarn. I knitted a baby blanket, and while I loved how soft the yarn felt, I really felt like the yarn was very stretchy. I am a novice knitter/crocheter and I found it hard to keep my stitches even because of how stretchy it was. I also found that when I washed my final product, it was still so stretchy afterward. Perhaps I envisioned something different when I purchased this yarn, but I don't think I'd use this for a larger piece again because of the stretchiness. Maybe better for something that needs a little stretch.

This is my new favorite yarn. I bought it initially to make a baby afghan and have bought it several times since for several more projects. It is SUPER soft. I tossed a test swatch into the wash on a regular cycle to see how it it handles being "abused" and it came out even softer and still looking great.

This yarn is incredibly soft, it knits up quickly, and I will deffinetly be buying this again. Keep this in stock!!! :)
