Such a unique yarn! Malabrigo starts with a bulky thick-and-thin single made of their delightfully soft superwash merino wool, and then they criss-cross it with a black binder thread. Next the yarn is dyed with one of their signature kettle-dyed colorways to make a gorgeous creation! 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: shoulder wraps, sweaters, warm winter accessories and big cozy afghans
The Caracol Cowl pictured above is the perfect fall accessory pattern for this yarn!
