Fabulous color & texture! The artisans at Malabrigo start with a bulky thick & thin single strand of delightfully soft superwash merino wool, crisscross it with a black or white binder thread, then kettle-dye the hanks in Malabrigo's signature colorways. Brilliant colors peek out like stained glass windows! Caracol knits up into a cozy, fluffy fabric that's perfect for warm winter accessories and decadent afghans. Made in Uruguay.

Love, But Not Right Away

I love this yarn, but it took a couple tries before I figured out the best use for it. The yarn is a superwash thick/thin yarn and although it is listed as super bulky, I found the fabric knitted to gauge was way too floppy and holey. I went down several sizes to get what I wanted for a hat (9 and 11) and they turned out PERFECT. The yarn is gorgeous and a joy to knit. No splits due to the netting that holds the batting. BTW, I made two hats as gifts and the recipients were thrilled. Now why didn't I get enough for me? Time to make another trip to Knitting Bee. LOL

So happy you found the perfect project for Caracol! Look forward to seeing you again soon.
