Cascade Ultra Pima
Ultra Pima is super-soft DK weight pima cotton that is great for all seasons. It’s very versatile for creating anything from sweaters to baby garments. Ultra Pima is much softer than other cotton yarns and does not feel stiff, because it is mercerized using a different process. Ultra Pima is machine washable for easy care.
Ultra Pima is the recommended yarn for Knitted Knockers of Canada and Knitted Knockers of Alberta, both of whom provide hand knit prosthetics to women who have undergone mastectomies, or procedures to the breast.
