Schoppel Wolle Zauberball Crazy

Zauberball has been kicked up a notch, as two strands of the main ply have been dyed individually and then twisted together for a crazy combination in Zauberball Crazy! The end result is a self-striping multi-colored pattern, with a bold variegated design!  Made in Germany.

    The slow repeats of colour are unpredictable, so if you are looking for symmetry in the final product DO NOT USE this yarn. If wearing 2 different socks does not phase you, you will LOVE this yarn.

    The yarn is great for socks, hard-wearing thanks to the nylon, but thinner than most north-american knitters are used to. I love it on 1.75mm needles (US 00).

    It is not "soft" and therefore not suitable for baby items. It's great for shawls also. Check out Ravelry for what folks have done with it!

    I got this yarn from a swap and I couldn't believe that people actually lust over this yarn. It's not soft because its 25% nylon. Overall I would say if you are going to spend [$] on yarn buy some nice quality yarn like madelinetosh, malabrigo, etc.

      Fun to knit with like eating a jawbreaker. You do not know what color comes next and it is exciting to see the patterning as you knit it up. Great for fingerless gloves and socks but also fun to use for scarves and small shawls.

          The amount of yarn on this ball makes it great for scarves and shawls. Beautiful, vibrant colors make an eye-catching finished project.

          Great yarn, with good lengths of ever changing color. I used it for a crochet top and the color change makes it a remarkable garment.

                      This is really lovely yarn. It's soft, however that softness is related to the light twist and ply of the yarn. Sock yarn needs to be tightly twisted and plied so that it's robust enough for the hard wear it gets. I look forward to knitting with this, but it will be used in a shawl, not socks. Life's too short to hand knit socks which wear out quickly.

                      Comments about Schoppel Wolle Zauberball Crazy:

                      This yarn has the most beautiful L-O-N-G color repeats and is a joy to knit with. The simplest of patterns turns into a work of art. It lends itself well to garments that need long color repeats, such as shawls, entrelac patterns, top-down sweaters, or in fair isle knitting (as the accent color or stripes).

                      I would not recommend for baby sweaters, as I find the wool to be slightly coarse. Also, the yarn is slightly finer than typical sock yarn - more of a light fingering.

                      Nonetheless, its beautiful colorways makes even the most boring patterns fly off your needles! Would definitely use again!
