Hi, and welcome to UK Fungi.

For future reference, if you have an ongoing interest in the subject, please take a moment to read http://www.fungi.org.uk/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=49 HELP US TO HELP YOU TO IDENTIFY YOUR FINDS.
We appreciate that you might not always be able to obtain all the necessary information, but the more details you can provide, the better chance you will have of confident identification suggestions.

It really is necessary to try to provide as much information as possible when asking for ID's (That goes for anyone asking for ID's!).

These look small? - but photos can be deceiving - exactly how tall are they?

You mention propagation fabric, which suggests that they may be in a greenhouse? - If so, is it a heated greenhouse?

They have the looks of a very small "Inkcap" species.
One of which is often found in plant pots (it has the common name of "plantpot dapperling" - Leucocoprinus birnbaumii
However, that species is usually more of a sulphur yellow colour, but I understand it does occasionally appear in a paler creamy colour.
It is generally very short lived (i.e. maturing and withering within hours)

Your mushrooms may be that, or something similar.
A close up shot showing a fully mature, open capped example, along with a similar shot showing the gills. would be good.

Regards,
Mike.
