Mixing Thread Types in Cross Stitch

All of my stitching time last week went to Crocuses on the Windowsill and I'm still loving it. 

This is the first Riolis kit I've done that combines the fuzzy wool/acrylic thread with cotton six stranded floss. I wasn't expecting that until I switched to the purple colors and realized that something was different...

I'm honestly not sure why they did this. Maybe it makes the flower petals reflect the light differently  or makes them look more delicate. I'm guessing that the more I stitch the more sense this will make.

Have you mixed fiber content in your stitchery?
