Ultra Pima is super-soft cotton yarn perfect for all seasons! Pima cotton is much softer than other cotton yarns and does not feel stiff, making it perfect for everything from sweaters to baby blankets. Because Ultra Pima is mercerized using a unique process, it's in a league of its own.
Made of 100% long-staple cotton, Cascade's Ultra Pima yarn has a luxurious sheen, soft hand, and incredible smoothness. It works great for knitting, crocheting, and weaving. This quick to knit pick stays interesting with a light sheen that really highlights pattern-work changes. With machine wash and tumble dry easy-care, Ultra Pima is ideal for garments or home decor projects.

Store your masterpiece carefully; it may one day be a timeless family heirloom.
Bob Dunbadin founded the Cascade Yarns in the late 1980s. From their humble Pioneer Square beginnings in Seattle, Washington, they have moved and expanded, but have never lost their commitment to affordable, high-quality yarns.
In a time when most high-quality yarn was being crafted in Europe, Cascade instead looked to Peru. Cascade has always believed that so long as the materials and spinning equipment were high quality, and the workers well trained and happy, good yarn can come from anywhere.
A family-owned business since the beginning, Cascade is now run by Bob Dunbadin's son Rob and daughter-in-law Shannon. They continue Cascade's mission to offer exceptional quality yarn for an exceptional price.
