Both synthetic and natural yarns can pill. Pilling is a function of fiber content spinning method twist contiguous staple length and fabric construction. Single ply yarns or using fibers like merino wool are known to pill more due to the fact that in the former the single ply is not tight enough to securely retain all the fibers under abrasion and the merino wools short staple length allows the ends of the fibers to pop out of the twist more easily.
Other natural fibers that can be used for yarn include linen and cotton. These tend to be much less elastic and retain less warmth than the animal-hair yarns though they can be stronger in some cases. The finished product will also look rather different from the woollen yarns. Other plant fibers which can be spun include bamboo hemp corn nettle and soy fiber.
Another measurement of yarn weight often used by weavers is wraps per inch (WPI). The yarn is wrapped snugly around a ruler and the number of wraps that fit in an inch are counted.
