Sultan Deluxe Shine is the glamorous version of Sultan Deluxe. Here, you get the same fabulous cake yarn made from soft cotton, but the beautiful colors and color changes are now accompanied by a fine, thin glitter thread.

Sultan Deluxe Shine is incredible to work with. Like many other cake yarns, the yarn consists of four thin cotton strands, but here the yarn is lightly twined. It makes it noticeably easier to pick up all four strands when you crochet or knit.

The characteristic color changes develop gradually over the running length of the 1000 meters (1093 yd). The colors only change one strand at a time, which makes for long, gradual color changes. It creates the most beautiful plays of color that are now accompanied by a bit of bling from the glitter thread.

Of course, you can crochet as well as knit with Sultan Deluxe Shine. However, you should note that you generally use less yarn for knitting than crochet, so you may end up with leftover yarn if you, for example, choose to knit a shawl. It’s not usually a problem, but it’s a good idea to start with the color that you want to be the dominant color in the shawl.

Sultan Deluxe Shine is incredibly well-suited for shawls and scarves where you want to put extra focus on the colorways. However, the yarn is also really pretty when used for tops, blouses, or tunics that get a dip-dye effect when the gradual color changes appear.

The yarn is OEKO-TEX® certified (no. 1976-294). Find more information about the certification on the https://www.oeko-tex.com/en/.

I bought a cake of this yarn a while ago. I struggled to find a pattern I was willing to go with it.

I finally found a shirt pattern. This yarn worked up better than I could have ever hoped it would! It's a bit heavier than I expected, since I've used other Sultan Deluxe yarn. That's probably the sparkle that runs through it. It agonist makes me feel like I'm wearing really pretty, soft chain mail.

The yarn worked up easily with very minimal trouble and is so soft and cuddly, unlike some other brands of sparkle yarn I've used in the past.

I really wish I had more money so I could buy so much more of it!

this yarn is absolutely gorgeous. The base yarn is super soft cotton with a gorgeous drape, and the sparkle yarn is amazing and not scratchy at all. It's great for lightweight clothing. It's a large cake too, so you could make a whole adult shawl with 1 cake. The Oppenheimer Blue(27) colorway is absolutely stunning and sophisticated, I'm in love!

my only "problem" with it is how tiny the yarn is, it's on the small side for a sport weight. I'm making a short dress with in, and so far the results are gorgeous, but it's going to be a very long project


Valerie

This is the first yarn I chose out of my massive first order to use, and OMG I fell in love with it. If you want to get away from any splitting, I recommend purchasing this without the Shine because that's the only thing I had to watch out for was the glitter strand separating/not coming off the hook. It didn't bother me one bit because the end result is so beautiful. I have to purchase one more to finish and I CANNOT wait for it to arrive!


Ivana

While the yarn is a bit thinner than what I normally use I'm completely in love. Sultan is so soft and sparkly and the colors are so rich and bold its absolutely fantastic yarn. I'm making the Abigail fairy dress for my daughter and I'm sure it would crochet into a gorgeous lotus Flower Blanket as well. I'm so excited and I'll definitely be buying more colors.


Nita

This yarn is BEAUTIFUL -- and having the strands twisted together makes it so much easier to work. Sometimes I find that cotton can be sticky to work with, but this glides so nicely and feel great.

Only thing I'll say is if you're pulling from the middle, I'd be careful in the beginning so you don't pull out a chunk and get it tangled.
