Schoppel Wolle Zauberball

Schoppel Wolle Zauberball is a wonderfully colored yarn with long color repeats that fade into each other. You'll love the finished socks you get when knitting with Schoppel Wolle Zauberball. One ball will make a pair of socks with most patterns, but you want to be sure to check your pattern requirements to be sure you have enough yarn.  Made in Germany.

    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.

        I crocheted a pair of socks from one skein. The colors were so beautiful and vibrant. They are very comfortable to wear and my daughter wants another pair as soon as possible!

          I have several pairs of socks from this yarn - usually wash them in cold/delicate in my front-loader, and dry on delicate However one pair made it in with some whites that I wash in hot, with chlorine bleach, then into the dryer on "regular". Guess what, no damage to socks, no fading or other problems. Congratulations on a wonderful yarn.

            Comments about Schoppel Wolle Zauberball:

            Love this yarn. I've worked a lot with Crazy Zauberball but this is the first project I've worked on with regular Zauberball and I love it. Only complaint I can come up with is that the spin isn't supper consistent, giving it a bit of a thick and thin finish. Honestly this doesn't bother me in the slightest but it's something that would have been nice to be aware of.

              Because of the price I have used this beautifully dyed yarn for accessory pieces- hats, scarves, dramatic impact
              with a small investment.

              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.

              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.
