Lovely to work with!
This is my favorite cotton. It is machine washable and machine dryable, and I can get a gauge range of between 20 to 24 sts. per 10cm. I use this cotton for baby booties (which I sell) and have never had any concerns from my customers about this yarn. The yarn keeps it shine and wears very well, doesn't slip while knitting and sells at a very reasonable price.
I have used both the Grey and White Ultra Prima Yarn by Cascade and it is a lovely yarn to crochet and knit with. It has a nice feel while working with it, is soft but strong as well. I used it to make some hot pads and dish cloths (a little lighter than usual but I had made some under pads of heat resistant fabric and dressed them up with this yarn on the top. They turned out beautifully and I got quite a few compliments on the set.
I loved using this yarn. No splitting and nice sheen. Made a beautiful bag out of it.
