Caracol is a uniquely spun, thick and thin yarn that is wrapped in either a black or white binder thread. The effect is stunning. In some colorways the effect of the wrapped thread looks like stained glass. The yarn is super textural so it works well with simple stitch patterns like stockinette or garter. Due to the hand dyeing it is recommended to work from two skeins at once, alternating each skein every two tows.
