[Knitting] Yarns with long color repeats - suggestions, please!

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!

Zauberball is the very best choice, I'm totally sure.

Try looking at Yarn Paradise (Ice Yarns).  They have a lot of yarns to choose from and their quality ...

Yes. I think I have one ball of Zauberball in my stash.  And I know where I can get more...spotted some at a yarn shop not long ago.  

Thanks so much!

Yes.  I know about Ice Yarns.  I've bought from them for years, but not lately.  I'll check them out again for the long color repeat yarns, now that I'm on the hunt for those.

Thank you so much  for responding!

I really wish manufacturers and indie dyers would specify that and/or show a knitted sample with measurements so knitters and crocheters can judge that accurately.

You should try   Aade Long  -  it is 100% wool and will keep shawl's shape great after blocking.

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

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