    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:

        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.

                    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.
