I picked up Vogue 1141 because of glowing comments here on the board about the knit top

It suggests moderate stretch knits only, cotton knit or interlock.

I am scoping out the current selection of my favorite ebay seller, he has a lot of bamboo and bamboo/cotton knits, modal, rayon, cotton and viscose knits. What do you think would work for this top? I will most likely be wanting solids.

Do you have a particular bottom you will wear it with, or do you want more of a neutral that will go with alot of bottoms?
I have used bamboo knits, rayon knits, organic cotton and viscose knits. Any one of those would be a great choice.
I took a quick look at your fave seller's offerings and love the shark gray and the moss green on the first page, but what color are you thinking would work best in your wardrobe?
BTW, that's a super cute little top...I should probably grab that pattern myself.
