You can use all kinds of materials. For your first band, I recommend a durable material, because you might sometimes want to unweave and reweave a part, and that stresses the yarn. Cotton works fine, for example.
On the other hand, I also recommend you to use a yarn that you like the touch of. The more fun you have weaving your bands, the better. That's why I don't use cotton that often, and rather go for wool. Wool is also more dynamic when it comes to holding tension. I did my first band in wool, but I don't recommend it as a beginner's yarn. It depends a lot on the quality of your wool.
I also hoarded cotton embroidery floss for card weaving because of the shining colors Smiley but I haven't tried it yet. I guess it'll make very nice bands.

Thanks for the info! I was wondering how well embroidery floss would work. I'll have to start exploring the fibers that are available to me...

It looks great!
What did you use for yarn?  I'm just getting into card weaving and I've just been using worsted weight wool, I don't like how thick it is though.  Your yarn looks nice and thin!
