If you can see the pinkness of your hand, then IMHO you're losing one of the advantage of a diffusion panel.... diffusion.
I've tried cotton bedsheets, and some very lightweight nuslin, but ripstop seems to work the best for me. Take a field trip down to your local sewing materials store and see what else they may have.
