Hey All,

I'm trying to get a small amount of noseeum netting for a project. I only need about 20" x 40" so it isn't worth ordering over the internet. And I haven't had much luck finding any locally. The local fabric stores have wedding veil material, but that is about the closest I can find. Been looking for some garbage tents I can cut up, but no luck there either.

Any suggestions? Or does anyone have a bit they would be willing to part with?

Thanks!

Sometimes I see "nosee-um" on rolls at outfitters/sproting goods stores. If all else fails, see if a cheap head net or a gear storage net could be "repurposed" for what you need.

For about $14 you can get a cot mosquito net at Academy Sports.

Quest Outfitters has a 26.5" remnant for <$2 and they charge actual shipping.
