Muslin is probably the most common cloth material used for diffusion, although it is very heavy so you need pretty strong lights behind it.
Tracing paper (like 1000H paper) is also a good, cheap, but fragile material for diffusion frames.
Grid Cloth is based on nylon ripstock fabric so you could try that if you can find something thin enough.
Nylon sheers like used in curtains don't work very well (but then, I don't think silk does either) because you still get some hard light coming through it with a star-shaped hot spot on the material.
