Caracol

Truly a unique yarn! Caracol starts with a bulky thick-and-thin single made of Malabrigo's delightfully soft superwash merino wool, and then it is criss-crossed with a binder thread (either black or white.) Then the yarn is dyed one of Malabrigo's signature kettle-dyed colorways, and: poof! Something unlike any yarn made before, inspired by a particular style of handspun yarn. Caracol knits up into a cozy, fluffy fabric with a ton of texture and visual interest. Simple stitch patterns really let it sing!

Great for:

Warm winter accessories, big cozy afghans, and stockinette that's far from boring

Be sure to get enough yarn to complete your project since each bag is a different dye lot, and skeins may vary from bag to bag. The skeins may vary one from the other even within the same bag.
