Malabrigo Caprino

$ 19.99

"Caprino" is Spanish for "goat," a nod to the 20% cashmere combined with 80% superfine merino that makes this yarn next-to-your-neck soft.


Loretta made "Doo Wop" by Lisa Hannes using 2 skeins each of Natural, Plomo, and Matisse Blue on Size 6 and 7 needles. Big color blocks, garter stripes and a graphic mosaic motif create a fascinating interplay color and texture in this eye-catching shawl. Tassels at the tips give it a fun finish! Pattern is available on Ravelry.

Loretta chose Natural, Plomo and Matisse Blue for her piece. Another favorite combo is Sabiduria, Natural and Teal Feather. Or create your own combination from our curated Caprino palette!


Crocheters will love the "Hominy, Too" mitts that Loops Trooper Sherri designed using just ONE skein of Caprino (pictured in Sabiduria). The mitt pattern is free with purchase of Caprino upon request.
