Malabrigo has done it again with its introduction of Caracol, a truly unique yarn! It starts with a bulky thick-and-thin single ply made of delightfully soft superwash merino wool, which is then criss-crossed with a binder thread that contains the "poof" of single ply and adds a fabulous texture. The yarn is dyed in Malabrigo’s signature kettle-dyed colorways to make a spectular yarn, reminiscent of a hand spun. Caracol knits up into a cozy, fluffy fabric with a ton of texture and visual interest, letting simple stitch patterns really sing!
We knit Marian by Jane Richmond for the store sample. The drape and texture of this popular cowl is absolutely beautiful and will quickly become a go-to choice for quick holiday gifts!
