Heddels explains Intimate Blend Yarn

Intimate blend yarn refers to yarn created from two or more types of fibers. If done well, the good qualities of the two fibers are enhanced while the weaker qualities are minimized. For example, a blend of cotton and polyester will have both the comfort of cotton and wrinkle-resistance of polyester. Other common blends include wool/cotton, ramie/polyester, silk/wool, rayon/cotton, and nylon/acetate.
