Will it blend?

Does anyone know why China seem to have a monopoly on all things wool blend? Silk blended with Ultra fine merino. Cashmere blended with cotton. Alpaca blended with angora. You name it, someone makes it. Secondly,do you prefer purity of material or do you like blended stuff? I have a preference for baby alpaca with cashmere but only two manufacturers seem to make them. Generally, I don't really know if the blend ratio is accurate or not. There seems to be no controlling standards I could find guaranteeing the material integrity of the item.
