Caracol by Malabrigo is a truly a unique yarn! Starting with a bulky thick-and-thin single made of their delightfully soft superwash merino wool, the yarn is then criss-crossed with a binder thread (either black or white.) Then the yarn is dyed one of Malabrigo signature kettle-dyed colorways, and: poof! Something unlike any yarn they've made before, inspired by a particular style of handspun yarn. This unique yarn knits up into a cozy, fluffy fabric with a ton of texture and visual interest. Simple stitch patterns really let it sing!
