Alas, alack, DIYGearSupply is out of No-See-Um. Otherwise my massive DIY order would be complete! 4yds short of a dream...
SeattleFabrics has the best price per yard, but they charge an exorbitant $10-12 for shipping. Other places have better shipping, but are more expensive on the fabric itself.
The best option I've found - other than being patient and waiting like a normal human being - is No-see-um in Gray. But I've heard that it's harder to see out of than the traditional Black netting.
The Question: Has anyone ever tried the gray No-See-Um, or compared it to the black? How much worse is it? Are there any other things to consider when thinking about the color of the bug net? Does anyone know if mosquitoes hate a boring, drab gray in their woodland decor?
Personally, aesthetic-wise I still prefer the black. But I'm itching to get this project on the road and haven't heard from DIYGS when the netting will be back in stock.
(And for the record, yes I've considered Tulle, Nanoseeum, and other bug netting options. I'd still like to go with the standard No-see-um.)
