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.

    Pretty yarn, but not suitable for socks

    By Nurse Beth Fuzzy Wuzzy

    from upstate NY

    Verified Buyer

    Pros

    • Soft

    Cons

      Best Uses

        Comments about Schoppel Wolle Zauberball Crazy:

        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.

        • Sweaters

        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!

          This yarn knits up perfectly. I love the weight and the way the colors unfold. If you love knitting socks you will love this yarn. So far i have used two different color ways and can't wait to use them all.

              I am using this yarn to make a very simple lace wrap, and it is coming together beautifully! The color gradations just happen to work perfectly with the pattern I am using. Would buy more of this product, for sure!
