Preferred Yarn and Colors for Knitted Knockers
Ultra Pima is super-soft pima cotton and great for all seasons! Ultra Pima is a DK weight knitting yarn and is the preferred yarn for Knitted Knockers. Ultra Pima is much softer than other cotton yarns and does not feel stiff. Because Ultra Pima is mercerized using a different process, we believe it's in a league of its own. Ultra Pima is machine washable for easy care.

Simply the best!

Review title says it all. My favorite yarn hands down for knitted knockers. Soft and easy to work with but makes a sturdy and even textured finished piece. Wonderful!

Mary thank you so much for the 5 star review for Ultra Pima and thank you for being a volunteer. Andrea

Aline F.

I think it is too thick and with 220 yards fewer Knockers can be made. I had been knitting with Circulo - Anne and see little difference in smoothnrss

Thank you for the comment Aline. Ultra Pima and Circulo are both approved yarns for KnittedKnockersorg. I'm glad you found a yarn that works for you and thank you for being a KnittedKnockers volunteer.

Curious about yarn preferences

Hmm, I am a knocker knitter, so far not a user. I am curious about yarn preferences of the users, say between Ultra Pima and CoBoo. Comparison of yarn comfort and durability interest me. Thanks for responding. Janet Evans

Janet, thank you for the 5 ★ review. I sent you a private message with everything I know about Ultra Pima and CoBoo.
