I have been making a conscious effort to work more with natural and/or sustainably-made fabrics. This was my first time working with bamboo in fleece form. It is so soft and cuddly. I recommend hitting up the fabric store just to get a feel of it.
My suggestion if you are creating sweaters with ribbing at the neckline? Make the length of the neckline ribbing at least 1" to 1 1/4" shorter in length than the actual neckline opening of the garment. When sewing you will stretch to fit. This will help avoid gaping and stretched out necklines.
I think I had more fun wearing the cuffs in the pre-attached phase than wearing the sweater. Gotta have fun!
