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 knitted a great cardigan sweater in gray. Love the color, hand, texture, however, with use, the yarn pills on the front and sleeves. This is definitely a downside. I'm just not sure if I should use this again in a garment.

        Comments about Cascade Yarns Ultra Pima:

        I'm using this yarn to knit a sweater. I was a bit nervous about trying a cotton yarn because other knitters have said it can be difficult to work with. While it's certainly not as malleable as wool, I really am enjoying knitting with this yarn. It's smooth and feels cool against the skin. I'm getting excellent stitch definition as well. I have not washed my swatch yet, so I can't comment on its washability. But so far, I really like this yarn!

        Cascade always provides a consistant product. I love the Pima cotton because of the light sheen and soft touch. I bought this to make a light summer pullover but I usually use this for small summer shawls. They are perfect for those cool evenings!

          I used this particular order to make a toddler top down sweater with a small amount of fair isle knitting as a border at the bottom. The colors are vibrant, and true. This is a fabulous baby yarn, or for summer scarves and sweaters.

              Comments about Cascade Yarns Ultra Pima:

              I absolutely love the feel of this Pima cotton yarn it is so smooth and wonderful to knit with as it doesn't split while knitting. While making a lace shawl with this yarn I had to "TINK back" a couple of times and the yarn that was tinked did not tangle and was easy to knit back, looking Ike it had not been tinked.

              I highly recommend this yarn for shawls, shawlettes, summer scarves, and sweaters.

                  The thing I liked most about this yarn is that I had to frog it several times and it held up brilliantly. Also, it did not split while knitting like another similar cotton I recently used. Nice product. I will definitely order again.
