Tilly decided she wanted to stock a millspun yarn to complement our colourful range of fingering weight (3-4 ply) yarns.  She chose this one because the COLOURS ARE JUST MAGIC!  Zauberball by Schoppel Woolle, Germany.  Two ranges : plain (if you can call these rainbow balls plain) and Crazy (which has a marle effect), both in 15 colours.  We have the complete range and if you want more I can quickly obtain from the distributor.  Made in Germany, the mix is wool/nylon so it's a "sock wool" but that just means machine washable 4 ply!  The main attraction is that it will mix and match with our hand-dyed 3-4 ply range.  1 x 100g ball for a pair of socks, 450 - 600g for a garment. $24 per ball.
