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 consider myself a beginner at crochet. I have Rhematoid Arthritis in both hands & find that doing crochet not only helps my hands but relaxes me as well. I quilted for years but that's impossible for me to do now. All quilters are crazy for fabrics & amass their "stash" at every opportunity. Well that's exactly what I'm doing with yarn.
      My yarn collection & patterns are overtaking my sewing studio. If I were rich I'd buy 3 times more yarn than I have now.
      I just appreciate the beauty & texture of yarns. Half the time I completely forget which pattern goes with each yarn. I'm afraid I've become OCD about buying yarn!! My goal now is to graduate from beginner to intermediate crocheter!!

                Comments about Cascade Yarns Ultra Pima:

                Ultra pima is one of my favorite yarns - it's my go-to cotton yarn in the DK and sport size. It is so soft and has a great hand. For a cotton yarn, there is very little splitting. There's a good variety of rich colors with a light sheen that gives the yarn a more luxe look than the price would indicate.

                I have made many sweaters with Ultra Pima and they wash and dry well (in a wash bag and on gentle in the dryer). Highly recommend.

                  Comments about Cascade Yarns Ultra Pima:

                  Amazing number of colors available for any project you can think of. I've made a shawl and have a baby blanket lined up with multiple colors. I find knitting with it is easy, but you may have to go down a needle size to avoid too much stretch in the finished item. I've also noticed there is pilling or 'wear' at the edges of the garment. This could be because the yarn is so soft. It's also more difficult to attach the next skein of yarn without it showing; you can't do some of the joins you might do with wool such as a Russian join because the cotton is too slippery.

                  I sometimes wear this cotton shawl around the house just because it's so soft & drapey!

                  Over all, I love the drape of this yarn and the sheen is very nice. I would use this again for the right kind of garment or project.

                    Knit small shawl for gift. Turned out so well I'm making it again in 5 other colors by request by family who saw it. This yarn is a joy to use and very forgiving if mistakes need frogging. Feels awesome around your neck and the colors are very flattering to skin.
