I think thread could possibly cut into the yarn so it's best for both security and looks to use wool.

I would join using yarn. You can crochet them together using a couple of different stitches if you crochet, slipstitch seam or single crochet seam. It will add an nice edge.
If you don't crochet then weave or back stitch.

I knit an afghan in strips and I made a crochet seam using the yarn, but you could also use your yarn and join them using mattress stitch. Amy has a video that makes mattress stitch seem quite easy (though it always seems much more difficult for me than Amy) lol :D
