Which fabric is best for acoustic panels?

I’ve already constructed my own acoustic panels at home with common wood and filled them up with “Rockwool Safe and Sound.” All there is left to do is to wrap them up with fabric. They will be hanging on my walls that is why I want to make sure the fabric I get will be breathable/durable and also look/feel nice.
I’ve seen recent posts about this but they were a bit outdated. Some of the material I’ve come across is Burlap, but it looks ****ty.
Other is Poplin Polyester, Canvas Duck Preshrunk Fabric, and this other one is Cotton Polyester.
I’m sure there’s more, but I also want the best bang for the buck too.
I’d like to get someone’s opinion on this as I already have everything set for my panels just got to wrap them up. Thanks!

I use burlap to cover them up. It comes in different colors and its very very breathable. I use a 3M adhesive to bind it to the insulation panels. I always use Coriing 703 or 705 as they come in 2 feet by 4 feet by 2 inches and if i want 2 feet by 2 feet, they are easy to cut.
