Truly a unique yarn! The yarn starts with a bulky thick-and-thin single made of delightfully soft superwash merino wool, and then criss-crossed it with a binder thread (either black or white.) Then the yarn is dyed a kettle-dyed colorway, and: poof! Something unlike any yarn made before, inspired by a particular style of hand-spun yarn. 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 warm winter accessories, big cozy afghans and more!
