Cahlista means beautiful one and this collection certainly ticks all the boxes! Scheepjes Cahlista is a recycled waste water produced yarn made from 100% natural, double gassed Cotton in Aran weight. Naturally matte, soft and breathable, use Scheepjes Cahlista in a wide range of projects from garments for children and babies, to flowing shawls and scarves, amigurumi, homeware items and more. It is further characterised by an generous twist, designed to reduce splitting whilst maintaining a soft, delicate drape. Cahlista has also been double gassed, meaning it has been passed over a naked flame to singe away all stray fibres, not once, but twice, ultimately creating an exceptionally smooth yarn that will glide over your hook or needles. Being EN71-3 certified, create wonderful projects that are certified safe to use by those with sensitive skin such as babies or childeren. Scheepjes Cahlista is available in an extensive 109 colours with colour numbers matching those of various other yarn ranges, such as Scheepjes Catona, Sweet Treat and Sugar Rush, allowing you to combine yarns with ease! Each ball of Scheepjes Cahlista weighs 50 grams and has an 85-metre length. Recommended needle size is 4.50-5.00mm.
I adore this soft squishy cotton. It knits up beautifully! I really appreciated Nitti keeping me up to date with the supply issues (which were out of their hands) they provided excellent service and I will buy from them again!
