"A truly unique yarn! We start with a bulky thick-and-thin single made of our delightfully soft superwash Merino wool, and then we criss-cross it was a binder thread (either black or white). Then the yarn is dyed one of our signature kettle-dyed colorways, and...POOF! Something unlike any yarn we've made before, inspired by a particular handspun yarn. Caracol knits up into a cozy, fluffy fabric with a ton of texture and visual interest. Simple stitch patterns really let it sing!" -Malabrigo Yarn

• Hand-dyed yarns will have variations from skein to skein. No two skeins are an exact match. Caracol comes in bags of 5 and have no dye lots. We will try our best to visually match skeins if buying more than one. Please try to buy enough for your project and alternate skeins while knitting.
• Pictures are taken in natural light with no filters. These are stock photos we've taken to represent each colorway. Due to different types of computer and phone screens, colors may be ever-so-slightly different. We try our best to capture what the colorway looks like in person.
