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 Schoppel Wolle Zauberball Crazy! The end result is a self-striping multi-colored pattern, with a bold variegated design!

Note:
 
You will need approximately 400 yards for a basic pair of socks for an average women size.

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 am a professional knitter. I developed a lovely scarf pattern that uses this yarn. It makes a lovely, artistic piece that's easy to sell.

My best selling scarf was a one skein Crazy Zauberball pattern. It was elegantly simple, yet VERY artistic. I developed the pattern four years ago and have knit it many, many times. I did a lot of commission work using Crazy Zauberballs and this pattern--and have a coffee can full of Zauberball tags to show for it.. I'm sorry to say that I'm going to have to rework this pattern using another manufacturer's yarn. The quality has recently dropped to the point that I can't honestly sell a piece--and be assured that it will perform the way my customers and I expect.

Zauberballs now have serious quality control problems.. First, they changed the source of their wool. They are using short staple length wool from Patagonia. This is MUCH coarser than the original product (which was not the softest product, but once washed and blocked was fine). It 's hand is now similar to that of Noro--which is UNACCEPTABLE for high end art craft pieces. Secondly, the balls are of uneven weight. I have purchased balls that turned out to be 90 grams, all the way up to 110 grams. My favorite commercial pattern works for a 100 gram ball. It WILL NOT work with balls that weigh less than 96 grams. (Learned the hard way.) I can live with this problem if I have an overweight and an underweight ball in the same colorway (take from the overweight ball, splice into the underweight ball). Thirdly, the reds and blues now bleed badly. I abandoned a scarf in colorway #2231 because I was getting dye on my hands while knitting--the yarn had been over dyed. I know that if I continue, I'm going to have a huge problem properly finishing the piece, so that it won't bleed for the customer. Fourth, the transitions between colors can be too abrupt--this is a new problem--that is, since the wool came from Patagonia.. I REALLY loved Crazy Zauberballs because their transition was smooth and interesting--I could get a pixelated effect, which made for a very artistic piece.

I either have to abandon a great bread and butter design or see if I can get it to work with another manufacturer's yarn. I'm NOT happy.

Comments about SCHOPPEL WOLLE Zauberball Crazy:

I love knitting with this yarn- the color changes keep things interesting even with mindless patterns. I Knit a few scarves with this yarn and they are just beautiful. I get tons of compliments everytime I wear them. I just wish the yarn was softer, it's kind of itchy around my neck. That's my only complaint about crazy zauberball and why I didn't give 5 stars.

Comments about SCHOPPEL WOLLE Zauberball Crazy:

Haven't used this yarn yet but it looks and feels lovely. I was in a particular knit shop and they had a pattern from Ravelry made with the yarn I purchased from you. The knit shop had the sample of the project but none of this yarn left. Course my personal feeling is she should have ordered more of that same yarn as I was ready to buy because I saw the sample and couldn't because she had no yarn left. Thankfully you all had some so I was able to purchase and now I'm excited to make up this pattern with the yarn I was able to get from WBS and then I can teach this pattern to my class.

I love the color changes in this yarn! It's never boring - I am making a scarf with this and I just love the way the it is working up. I am very happy with my purchase and would purchase this yarn again. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is the softness factor - it would be perfect if it was softer.

        I used Zauerball Crazy on a Stephen West scarf I knitted a few years ago. Got tons of oohs from friends. This seen will go to Zick Zack scarf, a free pattern on Ravelry. Can't wait to start it.
