Silks can be blended with a variety of other fibres to take the benefits of all the fibre characteristics... most notably silk is blended with merino wool to provide a beautiful yarn with a high degree of gloss but one that is also soft and warm.
Wool have long been used for their warmth and natural properties and sheep have been cultivated to provide a variety of useful wools to the crafter. Some of these are becoming very popular
Linen is another very ancient fibre - it has been found in ancient Egypt, and ancient parts of Europe. It is made of fibres from the flax plant. It is strong, absorbent and dries quickly.
