Malabrigo's newest offering is truly a unique yarn! They started with a bulky thick-and-thin single made of their delightfully soft superwash merino wool, and criss-crossed 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! It's 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.
