Ditto what kffrmw88 said. It isn't safe, they prob would melt or start a fire. Plus they wouldn't retain the heat for your pack as well. I think all of the commercial ones for sale I have seen are 100% cotton.

This doesn't address the fabric issue but has a few safety tips on it:

And don't leave them heating unattended etc.

I've used plain muslin when I make mine, and I'll make a cute cover (think mini-pillowcase) out of cotton flannel.

I use flannel. I would think what your talking about might melt.

I use old T-shirt fabric, myself. I've never had a problem with it. :)

Only use fabric that is 100% cotton. You can make them using old jeans, shirts, sheets, etc.

Hi. I use fleece and have sold hundreds of them. I make them 12 inches by 12 inches and when you heat them 2-3 minutes you get a moist heat. My people that buy them come back year after year to buy more. Good luck.
