    I've knitted both a scarf and a pair of socks with this yarn, and it is one of the most stimulating little skeins I've ever knitted in my life. The colors feel like Christmas in July, you keep waiting for the next one to appear. In the scarf, as much as I like it, it is coarse for my skin and will not be a good match for eczema prone people. And, like the previous reviewer commented, it does pill a bit. Regardless, I happen to like real wool feeling, and like the texture of this particular yarn, the only thing to fix would be to make a bit more eczema friendly.

    While I love the color changes in this yarn, it is extremely fuzzy. I had to shave the socks after the first wear. While knitting the first pair of child size socksI came across a break in the yarn which when the fixed it, the color sequence changed. I tried to knit a second pair out of the yarn but came across another break and a complete change in color sequence. Since when doing stripes I stress about them matching I only got one pair of child size socks out of them. I Will Not buy this yarn again.

    Comments about Schoppel Wolle Zauberball:

    I absolutely love the way the color flows, but half way through my project when it went to the pink the yarn was extremely thin and then a ways further it was fuzzy for about 2 inch's but got it to work in. This is a Christmas present I'm doing for my granddaughter and want it to be very nice. It is lacy looking and hangs very nice. I just hope where its thin it doesn't break.

    Comments about Schoppel Wolle Zauberball:

    Knitting this up as a gift for a friend in the Hitchhiker pattern. Almost halfway through. Beautiful yarn, ombré dyed. Only complaint is that it is a bit rougher than I had hoped. Hopefully it will soften up after blocking. Stitch definition is great and it is easy on the hands for knitting.

        Comments about Schoppel Wolle Zauberball:

        Although I like working with the yarn, I find that it is not that easy to find same starting point in skein to create matching socks. I also found that the yarn varies greatly from thick to very fine and would prefer more consistency.

          I used this yarn on a scarf. The slow color transitions really stepped up the overall appearance. I am extremely pleased with the finished garment. I used the Schoppel Lace on another project with equally satisfying results.

              This one of the best yarn choices for the Wingspan Shawl (pattern from Ravelry). The colors stripe in a perfect sequence. I've knit 3 as gifts and every recipient was DAZZLED by the beautiful colors. I'd definitely use this yarn again, but not for "direct skin contact". As others have mentioned, it's a bit rough for that, but it's great for "outerwear".
