I have been looking for sport or dk yarn with little to no wool or no itchy wool with long color repeats. I have combed the internet but need the help of all you experts out there now. Noro is definitely a no-no! Please, please, help!

James C. Brett "Marble DK" has long color shifts; it is 100% acrylic and used for lots of accessories, as well as items for babies and children, so I would figure it's pretty easy on the skin.

Knit Picks chroma does not seem itchy to me, but I'm not really sensitive.

Try these guys:

Merino, merino/silk, merino/cashmere. Purty darn soft.

if you explore their site, you'll find they're all about long color repeats, and they have many fun colorways. They call their long color repeats "evolutions", so look for those.

I made this out of two skeins of evolutions:

Dye your own? Kool-Aid is cheap and safe and VERY colorfast, even the reds.

It doesn't matter if the yarn is already dyed, because you can overdye it. The only trick is fiber content. I'd buy a couple balls/skeins, re-skein them x 4, and then dye each smaller skein in a different color.

Too bad Noro doesn't work for you. That was my first thought.
