The first thing that comes to my mind is Noro -- either Kureyon or Silk Garden. The self-striping colorways are gorgeous.

But there are plenty of less expensive stripey yarns in the worsted category. Try going to yarndex.com and clicking on "any brand" and "worsted." Or check the Berrocco and Lion Brand sites.

Try Paton's SWS, SWTC Karaoke, Plymouth Boku. Berrocco may have one, but I don't know its name.

:lol:

Let's see... couldn't find any that would self-strip, but I did find some self striping! (j/k!);) I'm not sure how these all work up, but you can look on Ravelry and see what has been made in them to see the fabrics they produce.

These two are actually not worsted..more like DK or sport, but they stripe a lot like sock yarn.

Hobby Lobby's "I Love This Yarn" comes in some self-striping shades.

That's why I knit. I'm the one in control of leaving loose ends for people to grab and pull.

Oh... now... see... one of these days I'll learn not to click on the pretty little links. I always find more things I want to add to my stash. If only I would find as many things to do with said stash. Then maybe dear fiance wouldn't look at new UPS packages with that "why me?" sort of expression. :teehee:
