Cascade Ultra Pima is an incredibly versatile 100% cotton yarn with none of the stiffness that sometimes comes with this fibre. The cotton is mercerised, giving the yarn added softness and a slight lustre. As a machine washable option it's a great choice for a wide range of projects. It's also a great value option with a generous 200 metres a skein.
Baby blankets and amigurumi projects have been the main projects customers have whipped up with this yarn. Ultra Pima comes in a beautiful rainbow of colours and it's often a struggle to settle on just one. If you're looking for some inspiration Lydia Tresselt, aka lalylala's, amigurumi designs work up beautifully in this yarn.
