I have become a big fan of Veera Valimaki's "Secret of Change" pattern and have made 9 or 10 of these wonderful shawls!  I have made it in solid colors but my favorite yarns to use are those with long color repeats.  Noro yarns have worked best, and I've also used a couple of the acrylic "cake" yarns with good results, but I am interested in knowing about other long color repeat yarns out that I might not have heard about nor seen.  

I'd love to hear some suggestions.  And the yarns with more colors in a skein work especially well.

Thanks!

Try looking at Yarn Paradise (Ice Yarns).  They have a lot of yarns to choose from and their quality is good.  Fast shipping.  I find that they are quite reasonable, even after I add in shipping, the yarns are cheaper than I can buy locally for the same quality.

What about a "Zauberball" (Schoppel)? They come in all kinds of colour combinations and also in different qualities.

Sehr lange Farbverläufe haben die Garne von Kauni, die kann man auch gut kombinieren, da sie in uni und mit Farbverlauf zu kaufen gibt.
