A truly unique yarn! Malabrigo starts with a bulky thick-and-thin single made of their 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 their 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!
Warm winter accessories, big cozy afghans, and stockinette that's far from boring.

We attempt to select the best matched skeins for your order, but as this is a hand-dyed product, be sure to get enough yarn to complete your project since skeins can vary widely between bulk shipments. To ensure random color distribution, work from two balls of yarn at once, alternating a few rows from each ball.
