    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.

      I used this yarn to crochet a loosely stiched drop hem circle vest. It was perfect for the project. The weight of the yarn makes the vest hang just right.

      Crocheted Throw, easy to use, soft feeling. Once and a while it would unravel & I'd have to stop and backup to fix. But I would use again.

        Comments about Cascade Yarns Ultra Pima:

        Knittiing with cotton yarn can be a bear, and an unpleasant experience. Ultra Pima is an exception. It knits evenly, shows stitch definition well and feels good going through your hands.

        On the down side, as with all cotton yarns, you have to be careful with splits.

                    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.
