      Comments about Lang Jawoll Reinforcement Bobbins:

      I wish this came on cardboard bobbins. I am accumulating a huge pile of these useless bobbins. It's just a waste of plastic that can't be recycled. Alternatively, it could be sold on small cones. I often use 3 strands of wooly nylon, but prefer this product.

        Comments about Lang Jawoll Reinforcement Bobbins:

        I bought this product to help reinforce the toes and heels of socks as my son and husband are notorious for wearing holes in them. It was easy to incorporate the reinforcing thread into the sock, but I wish the spools were larger. I cannot speak to the increased durability, as I just finished the socks.

        I was looking for just the right thing to reinforce sock heels and toes. It works like a dream. The only drawback is the very limited color range.

          To hold this thread along with my cherished special sock yarns on toes and heels was recommended by a long-time knitter. When my socks eventually developed thin spots, there was still a strong frame-work for darning.

            Customers occasionally seek this product, and Webs is the only source that I found. Though it sells infrequently, it's a great addition to my full-service yarn shop. Its high quality and easy availability truly are bonuses!

                I purchased this to help reinforce the heels and toes of kilt hose that I knit for a friend. His hose get a LOT of wear. As I knit this into the heels/toes of the pair I am currently working on, I can see that it is going to help make the heels/toes wear a lot longer. I will definitely be using it in every pair I knit in the future.

                  Comments about Lang Jawoll Reinforcement Bobbins:

                  I bought this reinforcement yarn to use in the heels and toes of thick wool boot socks. The yarn I paired it with is 100% merino wool which feels great, but wears through quickly. The reinforcement yarn worked well knit along with the larger, softer yarn, and feels good in the sock. My only disappointment is that I wish it had a few more yards on each spool. I'd planned to use one spool with a pair of socks, and I ran out of reinforcement yarn a few rounds before the end of the second toe. These are large socks for men (size 11.5 shoe) so I think that for a smaller sock size they'll be terrific and a bargain using one bobbin per pair.

                    This is a great way to extend the life of your socks. Just knit this yarn in with any sock yarn for the toes and/or heels.
