Caracol is a genuinely unique yarn! It starts with a bulky, thick, and thin single ply of delightfully soft superwash merino wool, and then Malabrigo crisscrosses it with a binder thread (either black or white). Then, the yarn is dyed one of our signature kettle-dyed colorways, and: poof!  It is unlike any of the other Malabrigo yarns. Caracol knits up into a cozy, fluffy fabric with a ton of texture and visual interest. Simple stitch patterns 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.
