Truly a unique yarn! A bulky thick-and-thin single made from Malabrigo's delightfully soft superwash merino wool, criss-crossed with a binder thread in black or white. And, of course, kettle-dyed in Malabrigo's amazing signature colourways/ Caracol knits up into a cozy, fluffy fabric with a ton of texture and visual interest. Simple stitch patterns really let it sing!

Looking for project inspiration? Caracol is great for warm winter accessories, big cozy afghans, and stockinette that's far from boring. Some great-looking patterns for Caracol from Ravelry include Adrienne Larson's Lothlorian Cowl (with two colours of Caracol!), Kirsten Hipsky's Veinte Cowl, and Kaity Fraker's Caracol Button Hat.
Note: 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.
