"Shine Sport" from Knit Picks is a summer weight, machine washable, durable blend available in a good range of bright colors, from cream to river. Made of 60% pima cotton and 40% rayon, "Shine" would work well for sweaters, scarves, beanies, tote bags, hat and mitten sets, socks or any garment.

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.

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.
