    Caracol is a truly unique yarn! It all starts with a bulky thick-and-thin single, made of Malabrigo's delightfully soft superwash merino wool, which is criss-crossed it with a binder thread (either black or white.) The yarn is dyed then one of their signature kettle-dyed colorways, and...poof! Something unlike any yarn you've seen before. It's inspired by a handspun style of yarn to give your knits a rustic and textured look.

    Caracol knits up into a cozy, fluffy fabric with a ton of texture and visual interest. Simple stitch patterns really let it sing!

    Many colors do not have dye lots, and those that do, are dyed in lots of 10. Any project requiring more than 10 skeins will require more than one dye lot.

    Note about Hand Dyed Yarns – While we love the exquisite colors available in hand dyed yarns, there can be significant variations from skein to skein. Please follow these guidelines to ensure success:

    • Purchase enough yarn to complete your project, allowing for a bit of overage, just in case!
    • Not all differences in skeins are obvious when comparing skeins.
    • For projects that require 2 or more skeins, we highly recommend blending your skeins by using 2 balls at once, alternating every couple of rows from each ball. This should blend any variations between skeins.
