A truly 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 hand-spun yarn. Caracol knits up into a cozy, fluffy fabric with a ton of texture and visual interest. Simple stitch patterns really let it sing!

Great for: Warm winter accessories, big cozy afghans, and stockinette that's far from boring

Be sure to get enough yarn to complete your project since each bag is a different dye lot, and skeins may vary from bag to bag. Skeins may vary one from the other even within the same bag. To ensure random color distribution, work from two balls of yarn at once, alternating a few rows from each ball.

When we dye our yarns, the same formula is used each time but every batch of yarn is assigned a different dye lot number. The differences from one dye lot to another can be very subtle, or extremely noticeable, specially on variegated yarns.
When we assign a dye lot number the main use is to identify which skeins can be labeled and packed together. After our quality control team checks the skeins, they go to the labeling section and then are put in bags of five or ten (depending on the yarn).
Once the bags get to the yarn stores, most skeins go to different shelves where they can get mixed. The dye lot code is really helpful when you try to find skeins that match.

Unfortunately, we don't have a record of which yarn store receives a specific dye lot and it's impossible for us to find out where you can find the same dye lot skeins.

The colors shown on photos are illustrated as reference, as mentioned above, they can differ on more or less of one tone, due to the hand-dyed process.

I take photos of all new yarns coming into the studio. Hand dyed yarns can differ between dye batches. I use my lightbox and Canon to capture the true colours so you don't need to guess. If a colourway I have in stock looks different I will make two listings to show the differences.
