      Comments about Lang Jawoll Reinforcement Bobbins:

      Friends recommended this reinforcement yarn since I'd recently gotten enthusiastic about knitting wool socks. I immediately ordered the reinforcing yarn in several colors to match or coordinate with my sock yarn. I'm delighted with the product. It adds minimal bulk to heels and toes, but makes them much more resistant to wear.

      Comments about Lang Jawoll Reinforcement Bobbins:

      I have used this so far to reinforce heels and toes of socks made from yarn that does not contain nylon. It is a bit thicker than I expected and you can certainly tell there is reinforcement in those 2 areas of socks. When I use woolly nylon to reinforce it's not so obvious but only time will tell which product will wear better.

              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!
