nylon for duvet coat

Hi Threads!

I hope someone can advise me.  For years I've wanted to make an over-sized, long duvet coat.  I've been thinking a parachute weight nylon might work.  But most nylon I've seen online is ripstop, which can vary in weight, and some are described in terms of deniers and some in ounces, which is confusing  And some ripstops can look stiff, cheap and plastic-y. 

Does anyone know a source for a light nylon with a nice finish and supple drape, like parachute silk?
