Ultra Pima is the hand-painted version of our super-soft pima cotton and great for all seasons! Ultra Pima is a DK weight knitting yarn so it's very versatile to design anything from a sweater to baby garments! Ultra Pima is much softer than other cotton yarns and does not feel stiff. Because Ultra Pima is mercerised using a different process, we believe it's in a league of it's own. Ultra Pima is machine washable for easy care.
