I just got a pair of the Big Bill wool pants in the blend last Christmas (24 oz). I feel like the blend adds a bit more durability than a 100% wool pant, but I could be mistaken. I also recommend sizing up. I got size 32, but there's not a lot of space for me to grow - especially with long johns. On the plus-side I have motivation to not gain weight so I can keep wearing them year after year.

Good new, bad news.  I received my pants the other day, great looking and feels nice.  Tried them on and way to big going one size up.  Exchanging them but I have to pay restocking fee plus shipping both ways.  Cost me an extra $37.   I'm not mentioning the name of the company because maybe it was in the fine print when ordering.  Guess I have to learn to read everything.  Probably a small company so I don't want them to pay for my mistake.  Will keep you updated.

Did you send them back yet? What size are they? I could use a new pair of wool pants.

Received the new order and tried them on. Weird but I’m usually a size 36 and these are big on me. I’m not spending any more $ exchanging them. Will take them to a tailor to get taken in. I’m wondering how much they would shrink when washed?  Not going to try just curious.
