striping or variegated?
How do I find out if a yarn is going to be self striping or variegated just by looking at it because sometimes it doesnt say and all I have to go on is a picture For example this yarn:

We could learn a lot from crayons:some are sharp, some are pretty, some are dull, some have weird names,
and all are different colors....
but they all exist very nicely in the same box.

Aimee -

I would say that very lovely yarn is verigated. Is it Malabrigo?

I've found that the self striping yarns look striped on the skein - as shown in the picture below (hoplessly stolen from here).
