    Thanks so much for this simple DIY project. I just finished making one for my WB Superfly tarp. Turned out great.

    I do belive that the name is Tulle. Its the stuff that is used under dresses and I found a ton of it in all kinds of colors and thicknisses at JoAnn fabrics.

    I do not know for sure but my guess is that it weighs less then bug netting.

    I have used it in the rain and it held up very well. Just make sure that you duble up on the thred as this stuff is very fragil and rips appart easily with only one run of thred holding it.

    When I dubled it up, I had no problems what so ever.

    Re: NoSeeUm Tarp Skins With Guy Line Storage.

    Made one of these for my DIY tarp. They're great. I couldn't imagine not having them. I don't use a stuff sack I just keep the tarp in the skins

    One of my next projects. Even have the netting. Ah
    "Some ware around here"... Put on the (To Find it) list first.
    Still after all these years this idea has held up. Nothing new to over shadow it.
    Great Job

    • On one end, I folded it six inches and sewed another piece of bias tape (creating a "new end") so that it overlapped itself.
    • Then I folded it in half lengthwise (short overlapped end inside itself) and did a zig zag stitch the whole 5' 5" length.
    • When finished, I turned it inside out and ended up with a similar setup that started this thread.
    • This made two skins; one for each end of the tarp.


    I didn't know how tight it would be for my AHE Shangri La tarp, but found that it was very doable to get it in; although very snug in the middle.

    Both skins combine for a total weight of 13g/0.5oz. Pics are posted in a reply below.
    I'm no expert on fabrics and fabric tapes.
    I was looking at bias tape for my set as well.
    The only bias tape I could find was almost 50% cotton.
    My thought is cotton will absorb and retain moisture, and could eventually rot.
    I used 3/8 Grossgrain ribbon on mine, and found a color to match the No-See-Um netting.
    I've gone to find myself. If I get back before I return, make sure I stay here.


    When I see lovers' names carved into a tree, I don't think it's cute. I think it's strange how so many people take knives on a date.
