"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 made two shawls using this yarn and both pilled something awful. The yarn sheds as it is being worked, annoying.

It is a lovely yarn with a nice sheen and drape. There is a small amount of pilling, but nothing horrendous. My only complaint is that the color Platinum has a greenish undertone, instead of a brown.

I, too, was fooled by the color I ordered the first time. I wanted a light gray, but ended up with a soft green! I knit it up anyway, since I was knitting for sale. It is really nice to work with - the drape is nicer than any yarn I have used in years. I washed it once before sending it on and there was a very small amount of pilling, but nothing that caused me to withhold it from sale. And the sweater was bought within a week! This time, I enlarged the yarn color and read that my next order is described as "silver gray."

I used Shine Worsted to make a baby blanket for which the designer had specified Knit Picks Comfy. Shine was a pleasure to work with, and the stitch definition is outstanding. Just one caveat: Always check gauge. l had to go down two needles sizes, from the size 7s specified in the pattern, to size 5 to get it right.

Seems like nice yarn but the Platinum color was not that at all, more of a beige cream color. So glad that I actually had to return it because I ordered the wrong weight. I will not order that color again. I know it is hard to get color right on computers BUT the description of the color was off as well. Not any gray in it. Gray is a blue tone, not a yellow tone which the Platinum color definitely is.
