Many of you are fans of Schoppel Wolle's Zauberball sock yarn. When Schoppel Wolle first released their one-ply, slowing gradating colors, they were a huge hit. Then they released a 2-ply sock yarn that gradated, but the two plies were different colors, making a cool effect and dubbing it Zauberball Crazy. Now, they have released a new 6-ply dk weight sock yarn, Zauberball Starke (pronounced shtar-kuh) 6. The Starke 6ply comes in a very generous ball of 150 grams. Which is 50% more than the normal 100g balls of Zauberball and Zauberball crazy (the fingering weight cousins), thus the higher price tag too. But from those 150 yards, you can get a HUGE pair of socks, or a nice sized scarf or shawl.
I have a few colors in stock for you now, with a few more to come.
I also have a few new colors of Zauberball Crazy and a restock of many of the colors of Zauberball (shown at left is 1535-Stone Washed). I'm still waiting on some of the colors of regular Zauberball, as this has been a very popular line and hard to keep in stock. I order large amounts so that it lasts awhile, and for the most part, I've been able to keep the colors in stock. Of course, if you are a fan of this line, you know which of those colors are hard to get...
I think just as many of you are knitting shawls and scarves with this as you are socks. If you've knit this, or are planning to, please do share your projects and ideas with us!
