Welcome to Another Yarn Review!:
If you’re new around here, let me introduce you to another yarn review! I love to share and review different yarns with y’all, and let you know my honest thoughts. As always, I have an accompanying YouTube video to go along with this post that goes into deep detail as well! Be sure to check that out my clicking the picture below, or the link at the bottom of the page ;)
KnitPicks/WeCrochet offers so many yarns, but Shine has quickly become one of my favorites. It is 60% pima cotton, and 40% modal. It comes in 50 gram balls, with 75 yards. Pair that, with the excellent price point and multiple color options, and it is a quick winner!
What I Like to Make with It:
I always think it is helpful to give advice on what to make with a certain yarn. Sometimes it can be hard to choose a project, whether it is simply because of indecisive-ness, or just not knowing what that yarn would work best for.
For this yarn, I highly recommend making a summer garment, or accessory. The cotton makes it breathable and perfect for the summer (or spring) weather. Plus, this yarn is great knit OR crocheted, which I love! I don’t particularly like making dishcloths, or other household items that need to be very durable and long lasting with this yarn. Because it is so soft and shiny, I feel that it is better for garments and accessories. If you’re wanting to make something that is going to get a lot of use, I would recommend a sturdy, 100% cotton yarn such as Dishie, Hobby Lobby’s I Love This Cotton, or Peaches and Cream.
One thing that I have found, and love, about this yarn is that though it is plied, it does not split at all. When yarn splits, it is very frustrating. It slows me down, and can cause issues in the future if I split a stitch without knowing it. I have not found that this yarn splits at all!
Vibrant color options. I love when a yarn line as loads of colors. But especially when the colors are curated to the season that this yarn is designed for. The color options on the KnitPicks (or WeCrochet!) website are bright and cheerful, which is exactly what we think of in spring and summer. Don’t get me wrong though, they also have some practical options, such as black ;)
Should You Try It?
If you enjoy using yarns that are soft, good for spring and summer, and vibrant, then YES! I highly recommend giving it a go!
