Aerial silks

Hello fellow cirqians! Been wondering if there is a cheaper alternative to aerial silks. Can anyone recommend a fabric that doesn't cost a lot? Preferably it would drape well and look nice. What I do is just knot the cloth to the beams of a Black Box ceiling where the spotlights are attached (don't worry, it's very stable). If anyone can also advise me on how to construct it, I'd be grateful. I don't need anything fancy rigging, like the Aerial Pas De Deux act in Dralion where the silks spin around the stage.... just the cloth dangling from the ceiling.
