Fabric Mart had a bunch of it last spring/summer and I bought some. I just finished (remade) a dress from it (finished it for the UFO challenge. It's wonderfully soft and comfortable to wear. I'd say medium weight is a good description. Not nearly as slippery or fine as the Buttermilk knits EOS has

I bought some from Fabric Mart last year as well. It's polyester and quite nice. I used it for sleeveless knit dresses. I'm pretty sensitive to breathability issues and it's fine for a sleeveless dress but I personally wouldn't like it for something with sleeves.

I wondered if it was just me, but I don't like the polyester ITY fabrics because they don't breathe and, while they sew up and look great, they aren't comfortable.
This might seem like a silly question, but are there "kinds" of polyesters? I've bought lots of rayon/lycras but the direction for suppliers seems to be heading toward more polyester.
