More on "geotextyle" 703 covering

I read an earlier post regarding someone using "geotextile" or landscape fabric to cover 703 for particulate reduction.

I sell tons of this stuff at my day job, so I have easy access. It's non-woven polypropylene. It comes in many thicknesses. The thinnest we carry is a home and garden grade in 3' or 4' x 25' rolls. It's the consistency of that black stuff on the bottom of a couch. We sell 3' x 25' rolls for around $7.00 a roll.

I'm wondering if this stuff is going to reflect sound, as it is basically soft plastic fabric. Any thoughts on that? What's nice about it is that it is VERY durable. It is almost impossible to rip, so it would make mounting I-hooks or other hanging hardware very stable.

The general 'rule' for textile to test usability for bass traps is: can you breath trough it?
Geotextile i use was easy to breath trough it, but maybe it was different than the one you have access too, because it was also not that hard to rip. It was closer to paper thant to plastic.
