The most commonly spun animal fiber is wool harvested from sheep. For hand knitting and hobby knitting thick wool and acrylic yarns are frequently used.
Yarn is selected for different textiles based on the characteristics of the yarn fibres such as warmth (wool) light weight (cotton or rayon) durability (nylon is added to sock yarn for example) or softness (cashmere alpaca).
In Europe textile engineers often use the unit tex which is the weight in grams of a kilometre of yarn or decitex which is a finer measurement corresponding to the weight in grams of 0 km of yarn. Many other units have been used over time by different industries.
