In using patterned yarns, it is usually a matter of whether you like how the colors and patterns work out with the particular stitch pattern you are using.

if the yarn otherwise suits your needs -- appropriate size and fiber -- try it out to see if you like the effect. Using self-striping or jacquard yarns is somewhat like using variegated yarns, except that the colors change over a longer length than with variegated yarns.
