I was reading and if you knit with yarn and tooth floss together when you knit the heels and toes of socks it makes it stronger. hope this helps

:think: Interesting. You'd have a white thread running through, but if you don't mind that it's worth a try I guess. I've used it for lifelines so I do recommend UNWAXED floss though. The wax kind sticks to the yarn. :doh:

Wooly Nylon is also used for reinforcement and it comes in colors.
