Overall Ultra Pima Rating: 4.8 out of 5 stars (4.8 based on 75 reviews)

Love and frustration 4 out of 5 stars (4 out of 5)
I love Cascade's Ultra Pima Cotton yarn. The color selection is extensive, wide range of both cool and warm hues. The only problem I have, and it's quite frustrating, is the pilling. All the garments I've made with this yarn, and I've made plenty, pill. There is no getting around it - this yarn pills. For those who haven't noticed the pilling, check the underarms and sleeves. Those garment sections are prone to the most pilling. I'm curious why cotton yarn pills. Wool, sure. We all know that most wool sweaters pill. But cotton? Cascade, isn't there a way to correct the pilling?

A favorite 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
This yarn works up into terrific baby items. Keeps its sheen through several washings. No pilling to date.

I love the softness of this yarn. It is easy to work with. I don't have a problem with it splitting. Love all the color offerings

Lovely to work with 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
I've used this yarn for many projects. I love the soft feel of the yarn. I haven't had an issue with splitting like I do some yarns. It works up beautifully.

Ok Yarn 3 out of 5 stars (3 out of 5)
I gave this yarn 3 stars because it is hard on the hands. It is not a squishy type of yarn, like some pima I have used. Other than that, there is absolutely nothing wrong with this yarn. It knits up very nicely, has nice stitch definition and has a nice sheen.

It's like butter... 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
My first time using this yarn, knit a baby blanket for a friend, and it was fabulous. So soft, no knots, smooth like butter. I will use this again and the color selection is wonderful.
