Cascade Ultra Pima Cottons are available in solid and variegated paints, and the two mix and match beautifully. These sleek mercerized yarns are 100% Peruvian pima cotton and are machine wash and dry so they’re great for kids and home decor items as well. With 220 yds/100g hank there’s a lot of yardage to play with. The recommended gauge is 5.5-6 sts/1″ on a sz 5-6 (US) needle so it will work in many sport to DK weight patterns. Sturdy, but still soft, these cottons also make excellent weaving yarns in both warp and weft.
Here are a few more projects that work well in the Pima Cottons… Enjoy!
