Feel Good Fabric

I would like to know how do I go about finding the blend of fabric I need to get the results of a soft, warm, latex free, stretch, feel-good-to-the-body fabric for kids. I was thinking of like a cotton/spandex/silk/jersey/smooth/wrinkle-free/washable/blend. I don’t know much about fabrics but have been researching for my project. Do I need to go to markets in New York, Los Angeles or Dallas? Or should I even try Mexico, I don’t have a lot of income, but am willing to do what it takes to get my project done..
Where, how, do I find this type fabric or can I get someone to create it for me?
Thanks for your reply. Love your columns!

Dear Ralances: I wish there was an easy answer to your question. See if you can find a “fabric consultant” somewhere on the web. You may also want to try the services available from some fabric testing labs. They may be able to guide you to where you want to be. Visit www.govmark.com and www.intertek-fts.com.
Good Luck, Andy
