Cahlista means ‘beautiful one’ and Cahlista definitely is! This 100% un-mercerized cotton aran weight yarn has an optimised twist to reduce splitting whilst maintaining a soft drape. This yarn is double gassed, this means it is passed over a naked flame to singe away any random fibres, not once, but twice… creating a super smooth yarn that glides on the hook or needles.
Cahlista comes in 99 shades with recognizable shade numbers, to enable projects with a combination of yarn weights but the same shades, for example using Scheepjes Catona or Sweet Treat.
Cahlista was introduced to the South African market when Be Inspired toured with Kirsten Ballering in August/September 2018 and used Cahlista in the XOXO bolster kit for the workshops. It is a great chunky style yarn that works up quickly and is perfect for home decor items or accessories like handbags.
