Malabrigo Caracol 150g Super Bulky Kettle Dyed Yarn

Malabrigo Caracol is a super bulky (approx. 20ply) yarn that's kettle dyed by hand in colours reminiscent of stained glass. A binder thread (black or dyed) wraps around a gorgeous single ply of thick-and-thin superwash Merino wool, creating fascinating visual texture both in the hank and the finished fabric.  Inspired by the style of handspun yarn, Caracol knits up into a cosy, fluffy fabric with tonnes of texture and visual interest. The beauty of this yarn is best displayed through simple stitch patterns.

Caracol is best for warm Winter accessories, big cosy afghans or chunky throws, and stocking stitch that's far from boring! 

  • Huge 150g skein (87m)
  • 100% pure merino superwash wool
  • Tension: 9sts to 4 inches, recommended 9-15mm knitting needle or 10-15mm crochet hook
  • Gentle cold machine washable

*Note: Hand-dyed yarns have subtle variations in colors that are a natural part of the process. There may be small differences between pictures shown and the yarn you receive.  Be sure to get enough yarn to complete your project since each bag is a different dyelot.  This yarn has no true ply due to the thick-and-thin nature of the soft merino core.
