It's here. Caracol from Malabrigo.
Truly a 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 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 we'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!

I've taken two skeins to make Twindom. The pattern calls for 15mm needles with Rasta or ASAP. The Caracol is a bit thinner so I'm using 12mm needles. The colour I chose is Zarzamora.
The yarn is very soft and enjoyable to knit with.
free pattern on Ravelry for a cowl that takes two skeins. Quick and easy Christmas gifts.
Happy Thanksgiving to our friends south of the border. I hope you and your family have a great weekend. My knitting grew this afternoon while watching football :)
