  Fireproof / flame retardant. I'd strongly recommend buying a softbox and appropriate hardware that's made for this purpose or switch to strobes. :>)

  Just to add to the obvious, make sure the material is virgin white; if not, you will introduce color casts you';d rather not have.

Also, the further the material is from the source light, the "softer" the light will be.
