Schoppel Wolle Zauberball Starke 6

Schoppel Wolle Zauberball Starke 6 is a heavier-weight version of Zauberball Crazy yarn, with long subtle color repeats. Each ply is dyed in a different color lending a soft marl effect to the yarn. Zauberball Starke 6 works up between a DK and a sport weight (be sure to swatch!), and is perfect for thicker socks, shawls and winter accessories like mittens and gloves. Made in Germany.

        Comments about Schoppel Wolle Zauberball Starke 6:

        I bought this for an entrelac project and it is perfect. The color changes every 2-3 rectangles and the repeats are not pooling so far. The color changes are interesting and the overall effect is beautiful. I think it would also work for socks. It knits up nicely and has a nice hand. It is a little splitty.

        • Not too scratchy

          Best Uses

          • Baby clothes

          Comments about Schoppel Wolle Zauberball Starke 6:

          I bought this to use for a baby sweater. The bright pink, soft pink, cream, and light pistachio green remind me of apple or cherry blossoms - good for a little girl's outfit. I was concerned the wool would be itchy or scratchy, but it felt fine.

          The only possible downside is the marl effect - it changes the character of the color repeats to be a little bit busier than I anticipated. That's fine for baby clothes, but you might want to swatch for other projects.

          Speedy and as pictured!

                I am using the product for socks. The colour blending is beautiful. It also feels soft to the touch.

                Comments about Schoppel Wolle Zauberball Starke 6:

                My daughter requested a hooded poncho out of this yarn, and I thought, "Man, leave it to her to pick expensive yarn!" But once I started the project, it was beautiful, subtle and fun, just the sort of thing my lovely twenty-something daughter should have. It was definitely worth it. I could not MAKE a "magic ball" with anything like this colorway for anywhere near the cost!

                      Used this for warp and weft of my first weaving project. I was weaving fabric for the top of a furniture pad. It self patterned beautifully. I would definitely recommend it.

                          I made an entrelac sweater with this yarn some time ago in the black/white/gray colorway not available on this website. It is by far the most beautiful piece of knitwear I have ever done.
