Super Bulky 100% Merino. The ultimate in art yarns.
Truly a unique yarn! This started with a bulky thick-and-thin single made of delightfully soft superwash merino wool, and then it's criss-crossed with a binder thread (either black or white.) Then the yarn is dyed one of Malabrigo signature kettle-dyed colorways, and voilà! Something unlike any yarn Malabrigo have made before, inspired by a particular style of handspun yarn.
Caracol knits up into a cozy, fluffy fabric with a ton of texture and visual interest. Simple stitch patterns really let it sing!
Fibre: 100% merino wool
Weight: Super Bulky
Yardage: 82 metres / 90 yards per 150 gram hanks

Care: Handwash if necessary. We recommend Eucalan no-rinse Delicate Wash.
Dyelot Batches: Like all Malabrigo yarns, Caracol is kettle-dyed in small batches of 5 skeins by artisan dyers and is full of subtle variation and beauty. We suggest buying enough in the same dyelot batch to complete your project as skeins may vary from bag to bag hence the separate dyelot listings. To ensure random color distribution, work from two balls of yarn at once, alternating a few rows from each ball.
