Unlike a Sageo, that can feature many different types of weaving, the Tsukaito has to be relatively thin and tightly woven.
Cotton allows a better absorbtion of the sweat but silk and leather are much more durable. Silk feels a little harder and may not be recommended for beginners but would not cause any form of discomfort for advanced practitioners and has a significantly longer lifespan.
This Silk Tsukaito can be used for any Iaito or Shinken and is sold per meter, the US metric conversion is given approximately, the length is cut using the international metric system. You will need 300 cm (3 m) for a Wakizashi Tsuka, and 400 to 500 cm (4 to 5 m) for an Iaito Tsuka.
