Machine washable, gentle cycle, cold water, do not tumble dry.
Truly a unique yarn! Malabrigo starts with a bulky thick-and-thin single made of their delightfully soft superwash merino wool, and then we criss-cross it with 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 they’ve made before, inspired by a particular style of 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! We made StevenBe’s Spirograph, available on Ravelry, using Caracol in Piedras, and Koigu PPPM in 5315-2 carried with Shibui’s Silk Cloud in Velvet.
