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.
Other animal fibers used include alpaca angora mohair llama cashmere and silk. More rarely yarn may be spun from camel yak possum musk ox cat dog wolf rabbit or buffalo hair and even turkey or ostrich feathers. Natural fibers such as these have the advantage of being slightly elastic and very breathable while trapping a great deal of air making for a fairly warm fabric.
Filament yarn consists of filament fibres (very long continuous fibres) either twisted together or only grouped together. Thicker monofilaments are typically used for industrial purposes rather than fabric production or decoration. Silk is a natural filament and synthetic filament yarns are used to produce silk-like effects.
