    Soft to work with, nice sheen

    For some reason, I like this better than the dk Ultra Pima. Lovely sheen, soft, good stitch definition, holds shape better than most cottons!

    Not as Much Love as I Hoped

    I made a lightweight sweater. I bought this yarn primarily for the beautiful sheen but once it was made up it lost the shine and pilled and fuzzed up

    Excellent Fine Weight Easy Care Cotton

      Comments about Cascade Yarns Ultra Pima Fine:

      This Cascade Yarn was amazingly soft. I used it for a baby sweater that had complicated intarsia and it worked beautifully. Not only was it easy to work with, but the colors were rich. After I finished the sweater I ordered more in other colors!

      Soft Easy Care Cotton

      By CaitlinGracie

      • Soft

          Comments about Cascade Yarns Ultra Pima Fine:

          This is a very nice cotton to use (and I say this as someone who doesn't like to knit with cotton). I am making a baby blanket for a friend who lives in Florida. This yarn splits a little bit, but it is mitigated by using very pointy needles, such as the Addi Lace Turbos I am knitting with. This is a soft yarn but has good stitch definition. I definitely recommend it for baby and children's items as it is machine washable. Great color selection as well!

          Comments about Cascade Yarns Ultra Pima Fine:

          Lovely, lightweight, smooth. Great for summer wear or items that need to breathe. I made a hair scarf with this one. I have found that Cascade yarns tend to twist up no matter what weight or fiber is used, and this did also. It wasn't a problem, really. Just annoying.

            I am using this yarn to knit breasts for charity. In partiular women who have lost their breasts to cancer. Love the yarn and I am sure I will use it for other projects.

                This yarn has a nice feel, works up well, has a nice twist and sheen. It does really well in a lace pattern. The only drawback is that the hanks are awkwardly wound and somewhat difficult to wind into balls.
