Sale! Shine Sport Yarn

$3.19 - $3.99 50g / skein  Original Price: $3.99


The touch of Modal® natural beech wood fiber gives the pima cotton a lustrous depth akin to silk, but without the cost or special care silk requires. The knit fabric is deliciously soft and smooth to the touch, with very little pilling. Enjoy the way Shine Sport reflects light from textured stitches and cables; also fine enough for two-color knitting. Its easy washability and long-wearing traits make it ideal for baby and kid knits. Retail: $3.99

"Shine is a fluid four-ply yarn consisting of two relaxed two-ply strands plied together. It is composed of 60% super-soft Pima cotton (named for the Pima Indians of Arizona, who worked with USDA scientists breeding cotton on an experimental farm in Arizona in the early 1900s) and 40% modal, a fiber derived from beech wood chips. The modal adds a shiny, mercerized look to the cotton, and it also adds drape and durability to your finished fabric. Better yet, modal fiber tends to absorb humidity and let it evaporate quickly, making this an ideal warm-weather fiber.” Knitters Review, May 2005

I enjoyed knitting with Shine Sport yarn, and the finished product looks very nice and drapes well. Some customers complained about the colors. I ordered hydrangea which looks exactly as shown in the photo, a light mauve and just what I wanted.

Absolutely loved this. Made a baby blanket for a christening present in rainbow + white Catherine wheel stripes. Everyone I work with loved it. Very soft. I washed it before giving on cold hand-wash cycle of front loader inside a LINGERIE BAG. Came out beautifully and just dried it flat in the sun on my sun lounge.

What wonderful yarn. My first order of the cotton blend Sport Shine yarn arrived today. I love it. It's working up beautifully for my amigurumi projects and I would certainly recommend this product to any and all. My order also arrived quickly, and as usual, well done Knit Picks, :0) Jackie

I like Shine, but you need some more neutral colours.
