Re: Different kinds of wool...

Anything blended with silk will look like that as well. Long wools tend to have more luster like BFL, as well as anything blended with mohair, you'll get fuzzy with a nice sheen to it A rule of thumbs is that the finer a wool is the less luster it will have. And it also depends on how it's spun woolen or worsted. Worsted spun yarns tend to have more luster than woolen spun yarns.
