The unique category option might not work - if you also have other items in the cart from different categories - because the cart will qualify for Free Shipping option as a result of having this item within it.

Blocking categories (you would need to set very category except the free ship category in here)

and

Eligible categories (set the free ship category in here)

There is another option that might work for you and is easy to set:-

If all your products have a weight

You could set Free Shipping items to 0 weight and create a shipping option for 0 weight.

Note that all other shipping options must no longer start at 0 weight
