The middle photo is cotton. The photo below is silk gauze and it's very shear -- you're looking at the piece folded four times so the dyed coloration is evident.
Just a note here, and possibly for myself more than any of you readers ~ Even though I am experimenting now with eco dyeing, I have no plans to give up fiber reactive dyeing. I did too much work earlier this year developing my own color palette with FR dyes and I like the results too much to give them up and move entirely to a new dyeing paradigm. And yes I know there's the toxicity issue and environmental concerns. All things in moderation, I've always said. Too many times in the past I've thrown out the baby with the bathwater, and I don't intend to do that with dyeing.
