Caracol is a truly unique yarn! This bulky thick and thin yarn is made out of 100% Uruguayan superwash Merino wool and is crisscrossed with black binder thread. This artisan yarn is hand dyed in small batches and colours may slightly vary between skeins as well as seen here in the listing photos.
Lettuce, an eye-catching colourway was created very early in the history of Malabrigo. It came to exist in a stroke of inspiration, while playing with the dyes and has actually turned out to be one of their most popular colourways.
Malabrigo is a family owned business, located in Uruguay, who have their own flock of free-ranging Merino and Corriedale sheep. They strive to use sustainable and humane farming practices with their ranch and flock. Happy sheep make the best wool!
