What a unique yarn! Caracol begins with a bulky thick/thin single ply strand of soft, washable Merino Wool. Then, it's crisscrossed with a binder thread and kettle-dyed in Malabrigo's signature gorgeous colors. Inspired by handspun yarn, Caracol has a look like nothing you've seen before. It knits up into a cozy, fluffy texture with amazing, eye-catching stitches. Use this yarn on simple patterns for beautiful effect. It's a great yarn for beginners, and works up really quickly into hats, scarves, gloves, cowls, and more! Caracol makes stockinette stitch far from boring.
