I'm glad you asked this question. I have moved to Florida from up north, and out of habit I have kept crocheting items in warm yarns. I would guess cotton would be a prime choice!

Cotton can get heavy, so I would look for one that is called pima, mercerized or Egyptian or one that is blended with bamboo or tencel or even acrylic. But the warning already posted about drape is so true. If you don't want a drapey look, stick with a true cotton. I made a lacy T out of a cotton/tencel last summer and it was wonderful to work with, soft and a bit drapy but not too much so. The tencel keeps the cotton from being too weighty, and helps keep it from going out of shape, which plain cotton can easily do.
