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.

Pills and fuzz.

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 true Ultra Pima:

      What blew me away was this: I bought the navy blue color at a local yarn shop in PA for my daughter's Christmas present, but the pattern she wanted to use needed one more skein. I took a chance & ordered a skein from Webs, and would you believe it was the SAME LOT NUMBER?! Totally made my day & her present! Thanks!

        I knit a tunic length top for my daughter. I chose this yarn because it was the right weight and had a great selection of colors! It does pill, like other reviewers said, but it's been washed 3x now & I don't think it looks old. The top stretches with wear, but shrinks back down in the dryer. Overall, I would buy again!

          I knitted 2-color cowl in this cotton yarn. It looks beautiful. I much prefer working in wool, but my daughter-in-law is allergic to wool. So this was a good alternative

                  Comments about true 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.

                        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.
