Finally want to start treating my room need advice!!!

I want to build 8-10 pieces of panels 10 cm thick 120 H and 60 cm W.
I have 2 questions first is about fabric to cover them everybody mentions the air blow test.
From what I tried so far 100% polyester and cotton only very thin (and will be transparent material )passes the air through with not much resistance.
The question is how much resistance is ok ,if a bit of air comes out from the other side is ok or better to be almost all.

My 2nd question is about panel placement I saw a lot of studios have bass traps from floor to sealing ,others have it from the middle up ,and others only in the middle at speaker height.
My room is 4m x 3.5 m

Thanks for anyone who takes time to give me advice
Best regards Adam!!!

Floor to ceiling. I don't like the speakers as flashlight anology, I think of them as spheres of sound that will quickly hit everything from the front of the room to where you're sitting so it's important you treat floor to ceiling.

You can see some of the side wall reflections you can get rid off by treating floor to ceiling here: Need help with next steps for 15 m² room

Apart from that, get an omni measurement microphone and measure your room first, you can find a lot of problems early.
