Incredible quality by Nike in their hi-wick Dri-Fit Series! Dri-Fit features advanced wicking performance developed for active individuals. Specially formulated hydrophilic polyester fibers move heat generated body moisture away from the skin to the outer surface of the fabric. This aids in rapid evaporation, keeping the wearer cool and comfortable. These fabrics can be used for leggings, jeggings, shorts, tops, bikewear, and other workout wear.

Nike Dri-Fit Lycra
I have made 3 turtlenecks from this fabric in 3 different colors: pink, red, and green. It is very stretchy and, therefore, a bit challenging to work with on a regular sewing machine. I finally used a small zigzag stitch for all of the seams, which seemed to work better than various attempts with overlock stretch stiches. Interestingly, the pink fabric is a bit lighter weight than the red or green, however, I think they are all good for a cooler weather turtleneck. Machine wash and dry nicely. Originally, I bought the green to make yoga pants, but decided they would be a bit see through when stretched a lot. I recommend this for an experienced sewist -- not for the beginner.
