Does anyone know if the Snow color for the Nature Spun yarn line by Brown Sheep Company is spit-splicable (http://brownsheep.com/yarns/nature-spun/item/740-snow?category_id=9)?

The Web site says that the Nature Spun line is feltable except for the colors Snow, Natural, Lullaby, and others. I'm not looking to make felted projects, but the yarn has to felt enough to join together an old tail of yarn with a new one. I'm looking to get Snow so that I can dye it to different colors and I want to get one-lb. cones so that I don't have to guess how many balls or skeins to use. I don't want to spend so much money on a shade of yarn that can't be spit spliced. I was informed by an employee via e-mail that the Snow color, a pure white, was bleached, so it doesn't felt because of that. Is that even true that bleach stops the fibers from being able to lock with themselves? I'd never heard of that before.

Hopefully, someone's had experience felting/spit splicing the Snow shade of Nature Spun to be able to help me.

If it felts it splices.
I have never had issues with "natural" or white yarns not splicing well.
If you check out the rav comments there is a mention of the white not felting AS well, but it does felt

comment by "joyjannotti" is particularly helpful: http://www.ravelry.com/yarns/library/brown-sheep-nature-spun-worsted/comments

If it doesn't (I'm not familiar with that yarn), the Russian join should work well too.
