    I used Cascade Ultra Pima to knit a lace scarf for my niece. The color is just so vivid and beautiful (bright turquoise) and the lace pattern came out so nice. I found that for a cotton yarn, it was soft and easy to work with. I bought another two skeins to make another scarf!

    Before blocking, I rinsed it in cold water. There was some bleeding of the dye, but not a ton.

    I'm very disappointed with that yarn.
    I knitted a custom order shorts and before they will be finished it pilled and fuzzed up.
    I washed the ready shorts very carefully by hand with Eucalan soap. After that it absolutely lost its shine and now it looks like a used dish cloth.
    I don't know how it will look after the machine washing and drying. I'm even afraid to think about that.
    So all advantages do not matter because of this one huge disadvantage.
    Maybe in crochetted project it will look better.

        Comments about Cascade Yarns Ultra Pima:

        I have hated knitting knitting with cotton in the past, every yarn I had used was course, stiff, and felt like string. My daughter begged me to knit her a cotton cardigan and I chose this yarn based on other reviews and I love it. It's soft, has a slight sheen, knits easily, and tinking or frogging is easy. I will definitely start knitting with cotton with this as my yarn of choice.

          Bought extra skeins to go with ones I already had. Alternating them made a stripey effect. Not bad.

                  The service and delivery from WEBS is outstanding. My sis wanted a black vest, yes, black. Hard to see, but that is not the yarns fault. It was a very Lacey vest and with the sheen of the yarn came out beautiful. Yarn was slick so glad it was just a vest.

                    This yarn is perfect for those who love cotton but do not want a heavy garment ... knits to a gauge of 5.5 sts/inch the best. Great for lace patterns, I made a beautiful christening blanket, and also great stitch definition w cables and textured patterns. Have used w several Bliss, Rowan and Ella Rae patterns w excellent results. Machine wash gently, warm and tumble dry low. Perfect for busy moms!! I will try Ultra Pima Fine, soon, to see if it is likewise perfect.
