Default Clothing for characters

Noob question:

I've started dioing a hi-res animation. I'm still in te modelig phase. Is it better to model the character clothing manually or is Maya Cloth actually any good. Does maya cloth allow you to change the thickness of the material to make something thick like wool, or something thin like silk?

What would be thee way to go?
