The Scheepjes Cahlista is a soft, smooth yarn that works well for knitting and crochet. The optimized twist makes for a very soft yarn without risks of poking through the yarn with your needle. The yarn is “double gassed”, which means it’s passed over an open flame twice to singe away all the random fibers that might be attached to the thread. This makes the yarn super smooth and makes for a smooth finish because it won’t be fuzzy after washing. .
This yarn falls under the DK/ Worsted category and knits/ crochets up nicely with a 4,5 or 5mm needle/ hook. The smooth thread works well for clothing, toys, blankets, accessories, embroidery and macrame. It’s strong and durable, yet soft and supple. The finished item feels cool to the touch and works very well for summery projects, but add a little mohair to it and it works perfectly well for fall and winter items as well!
