I love the feel of velvet- though I have never found a way to wear it that looked "right" to me

I love crisp starchy silks, and supersoft cashmere

Ooh, good thread!

My favorites are sheer natural fabrics: cotton tulle,cheesecloth,gauze, lawn and muslin in cotton and wool

I also like
linen/hemp blends with silk
cotton
antique lace
silk chiffon

...they all have warmth of character

I actually like (and need) most fabrics. But I'm usually attracted to very delicate fabrics or sometihng with interesting texture:
Crepe de chine
Duchesse satin
Tulle
Brocade
Taffeta (very hard to wear but I love the look of it)
Thick lace (almost crochet)

For everdaywear:
Linen (ironing this stuff is a bitch but I love it coz it's very crisp)
Cotton jersey (the really silky kind)
Cashmere (who doesn't? )
Tweed (I love the variety)

Not so much a distinct 'fabric,' but I really like wool gabardine on tailored jackets, looks refined but the gabardine makes it feel more approachable and less formal. I also like denim a lot, since it's the stuff that covers my legs practically every day. Coincidentally, I love wearing my Y's wool gabardine jacket with a nice pair of jeans, my favorite combo.

And there was a Y's hoodie from the F/W season that just ended, when I touched it, it felt as soft as cashmere but I checked the composition and it was 50% wool, 50% acrylic. I thought that was a great use of blended fabrics.
