If you have not experienced the beauty of Zauberball self-striping yarn, you really need to treat yourself to a ball.
A large back-order of Zauberball arrived yesterday. Zauberball comes from Germany. Our wonderful Canadian distributor, Dennis from Wool & Wicker. tries very hard to keep us in good supply but Zauberball has become increasingly popular and is often sold out. We carry three varieties of Zauberball -
the original Zauberball sock yarn
a few colours below
Zauberball is a self-striping yarn with very long, gradual colour transitions. It started out as a sock yarn which is great fun to use to knit just a basic vanilla sock.
Designers very quickly discovered it's versatility and you will find hundreds of gorgeous designs posted on Ravelry. One of my favs is WINDWARD
Windward has multiple changes in knitting direction and Zauberball highlights it beautifully.
also a sock yarn, self striping with a marled effect
Stash Buster Baby Hat - pattern Fee with yarn purchase at the store, fits a new born and knit with just a few grams, left over from a pair of socks.
