Caracol is a unique yarn that begins with a bulky thick-and-thin single made of the softest superwash merino wool, and then criss-crossed with a black or white binder thread. The yarn is then dyed one of the signature kettle-dyed colorways loved around the world. Something unlike any yarn they've made before, inspired by a particular style of hand-spun yarn. Caracol knits up into a cozy, fluffy fabric with so much texture and visual interest. Simple stitch patterns really show it off.
