    Will this fabric do for Bug Net

    Saw this on line at Hancock Fabric.
    I may go to the store and check it out in person.
    With the ubiquitos coupons this would be under $1 / yard.

    Any thoughts?

    Hancock customer service emailed me back immediately.
    They said the holes were bigger than the mosquito netting, but offered to get the warehouse to answer in detail.

    Has anyone used their mosquito netting?

    Its been a few years ago; so I'm not positive its the same stuff I bought; but:

    Pro's: Very soft, easy to work with, low price, proper mesh for mosquitoes
    Con's: Relatively bulky and heavy, too large of mesh for noseeums

    Hope that helps!

    I agree with BC. I was checking it out in a store last week for my next project. I think it would be easier to sew and doesn't seem as delicate as the noseeum I have on my current hammock. But the holes are a good bit larger and doubling it up would be too bulky for me. But depending on your application it may work for you.
