Tyvek is a type of synthetic material. It is often used in the construction industry as a vapor barrier between an exterior house wall and siding. Tyvek will allow for gas exchange (let your jars breath) but evidently bacteria and mold spores can not easily pass through. I  just used it on 8 1/2 pint jars and a 6 pack of pints with WBS and it worked beautifully. I used the tyvek instead of the metal lids, inoculated right through it and covered the holes with scotch tape. You can get it for free at the website below. Also a coffee filter will not work. It is a natural fiber that absorbs water and molds will grow on it and transfer through. Some people do use coffee filters as a secondary dust/mold filter on the outside of their containers just for good measure but they do have something else underneath.
Good Luck  :smile:
