Friction is due to the weight of the object and the coefficient of friction. The coefficient is a number that tells you how much friction you would expect between pairs of surfaces.

Force friction= weight x coefficient of friction

So as the weight increases so does the amount of friction.

Note on "coefficients of friction":

Sand paper may have a coefficient of 0.78 (the closer to 1, the more friction you will have), and a piece of ice sliding across a sheet of ice may have a coefficient of 0.02, meaning almost no friction.
