Caracol is truly a 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! It knits up into a cozy, fluffy fabric with a ton of texture and visual interest. Simple stitch patterns really let it sing!
Malabrigo yarns are hand-dyed, so like all hand-dyed yarns, colors vary from dye lot to dye lot and may also vary from within the same lot. Colors that you receive may look different from the colors shown below. To ensure random color distribution, we recommend that you work from two balls at once, alternating a few rows from each ball.
Be sure to purchase enough yarn to complete your project. Each bag is a different dye lot. Caracol is produced in bags of 5.
