A truly unique yarn! Made with a bulky thick-and-thin superwash merino wool, and then criss-crossed with a binder thread (either black or white.) Then the yarn is kettle-dyed, like all of the other Malabrigo yarns that you know and love. Caracol knits up into a cozy, fluffy fabric with a ton of texture and visual interest. Simple stitch patterns really let it sing.

Malabrigo is a family owned yarn company located in Uruguay. Their wool is 100% produced by Uruguayan farms that allow their free-range sheep to wander through the hills and are herded by old-style shepherds. They do not participate in the controversial practice of mulesing and sheep are sheared pre-lambing. They are committed to achieving the highest standards of ethical sheep husbandry. They also own and operate a second mill based in Peru.
