    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.

      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.

              I've used this yarn to knit baby blankets for family & friends. I line the back side of my project with minky fabric, and this yarn is light enough to keep the finished product from being too heavy or bulky.

                As long as this is made in Peru. If this goes elsewhere, it won't be the same quality.

                  I used this in combo with another yarn to make beautiful scarves. It is a wonderful warp that drapes so nicely and has a glow to it. It is so soft that I find myself wanting to knit with it. It would be such luxury.

                    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.

                      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.
