Jawoll reinforcement thread is the perfect solution for hardwearing sock heels and toes. Hold it together with your primary yarn to reinforce high-wear points (like heels and toes) and extend the life of your socks!
Lang Yarns' Jawoll is the Rolls Royce of sock yarns. The wool is sourced from Corriedale sheep: for Jawoll, Lang Yarns only uses wool of the finest provenance from Chilean Patagonia. During shearing, the best parts of the fleece are selected and sorted out. The average thickness, the diameter of the fibre, is just 25 microns (1 micron = 1/1000 mm) so the wool is very soft and comfortable to wear. The Corriedale sheep live year-round in the natural wilds of Patagonia. Because of the scant food supply, their wool remains white and grows to an average staple length of 10cm. This makes it take dye well; the colors are brilliant and the finished yarn is highly resistant to pilling (knot forming).
Fiber: 75% Virgin wool Superwash; 25% Nylon
