Malabrigo's Caracol is a truly unique yarn! They start with a bulky thick-and-thin single made of delightfully soft superwash merino wool, and then they criss-cross it 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. Due to the variable nature of hand-dyed yarn, please consider emailing yarnpatchstaff at gmail to request a picture of the specific skeins in stock.
