Cloth as reflector?

What are the drawbacks of using fabric as reflectors intead of foam board or the folding reflectors that you buy? I have a $1.99 per yard fabric store near me, and I am thinking that it would be a good place to start in making my own first reflectors. I was going to look for some simple white and silver fabric to use. I guess one negative is that if you don't have someone to hold it, it's harder to use? What else should I consider? The folding reflectors on ebay are pretty cheap, so it's not like it's going to save me a ton of money. Thanks for helping a newbie.
