You can buy sweater knit fabric by the yard. I have a nice cut of purple sweater knit I'm going to make up into a sweater to wear around the house...someday. Here's a link to some gray sweater fabric, http://www.fabric.com/ProductDetail.aspx?ProductID=8f70f2a3-9e66-45ce-ba6f-4aed9b0f44bf
and I'll bet that if you googled sweater+knit+fabric you'd get lots of other hits.

Subject: [TheCostumersManifesto] Sock Monkey Costume
Hello everyone, I hope you are having a great summer. After the past two summers of being in the Louisiana heat and humidity I am so grateful to be in the mountains this summer.
I need a little help and thought this was the perfect place to ask since my costuming is Mardi Gras presentation gowns.
My task is to repay a friend/writer, who helped me with the Virtual Costumer article about my gowns (Feb. 2011).
He wants to a Sock Monkey costume for Halloween.
While in Los Angeles, buying fabrics I didn't see anything that even came close to the coloration of a sock monkey, much less the texture.
I would prefer to do this costume as a jumpsuit instead of a two piece sweat suit. The white breast plate would hide the zipper in the front.
I am stuck on a fabric for the jumpsuit, or what I can do to a brown knit fabric to make it look more like a sock monkey knit.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
To bad that he doesn't want to dress as a Princess, because I can handle that easily. LOL
