I got some Patons Angora Bamboo which is 55% bamboo, 35% wool and 10% angora for a summer sweater project a few years back. I never finished it because I bought all the yarn recommended for the size and had used all of it before I got the back piece done and there were only 80 yards on a spool. You may want to take a look at KnitPicks and see if they have something commensurate and cheaper.
