Cascade Yarns - Ultra Pima - Black 3730
Pima cotton is a higher-end cotton with a longer fiber than conventional cotton. It has a reputation for producing a smooth fabric that’s soft to the touch, wrinkle-resistant, and ultra-durable. Pima cotton fibers measure between 1.4 to 2 inches (conventional cotton fibers measure up to 1.1 inches long). Pima cotton yarn becomes softer and more durable than if it were made from a shorter staple cotton. Manufacturers say that Pima cotton has a 50% longer life expectancy than other cotton products. It’s also great for people who have sensitive skin!Ultra Pima is super-soft pima cotton and great for all seasons! It's a  DK yarn, versatile enough to design anything from a sweater to baby garments! Ultra Pima is not stiff. Because Ultra Pima is mercerized using a different process, it's in a league of its own. Ultra Pima is machine washable for easy care. And Ultra Pima comes in solids and multicolors!
