I recently used Shine for an infant hat, and I am thrilled with the finished product. Shine is very soft, perfect for a little hairless head, and worked up beautifully. I will definitely use it again -- and again, and again!!!!

I made a tank top for my son out of Shine and it's worn wonderfully. The yarn is very easy to knit with- I don't normally enjoy knitting with cotton at all and that's not the case with Shine. Washes and wears great, too.

This is so soft, I just love working with it! I've used it for summer sweaters, and baby items. I just keep ordering more!

It is very soft and a good value but do get the color card before you order. The apricot is a much brighter orange than it looks onscreen - on the Knit Picks website it looked more like a peach. The butter is a brighter yellow as well, it looked cream on their website.

Shine is a lovely yarn to work with, although I noticed a slight amount of shedding while actually knitting, more with some colors than with others. It wears wonderfully and is easy to care for. The yarn is very soft and versatile.

Shine pilled a bit when I was knitting with it, but as others said the finished product is fine. It is a lot better than the similar Classic Elite Premiere, and cheaper as well.

I love how soft and durable this yarn is. I've crocheted baby socks and hat from it and plan on making a lacey summer shrug with it. This is the only cotton blend I've tried that I've liked; it's not too hard to work with. And the price can't be beat.
