Malabrigo

Malabrigo Caracol Yarn

$34.00

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

Great for: Warm winter accessories, big cozy afghans, and stockinette that's far from boring

 The colors shown on photos are illustrated as reference, they can differ on more or less of one tone, due to the hand-dyed process.
