Mohair Questions

I bought (82 yards per pack x 2 packs) 164 yards of moonlight mohair because I've never used it. Now I've read that it's very hard to pull out, like the bocule is, so I have to watch my tension and I know it's very fuzzy, like fun fur, so it'd be easier to mix it with a solid acrylic yarn at the same time. Any tips? Suggested needle sizes?

I also bought 100yds of super bulky chinelle and 122yds of this pretty Garnet lion suede. All of this cost me about $3-4 at the Mardens up here. I cannot believe it.

TY for your help ladies,
