    Is this a good price for no-see-um?

    117" wide, sold by the running yard @ $7.95/yd

    Just want to know if there is a better price out there. Google didn't give me much help.

    Here's a link:

    Or use Tulle not as tight but around 1.50 a yd and around .28 oz sq yd really light.
    I keep thinking of things after I post, sorry.

    Seattle Fabrics has Gray Noseeum, 54" wide for $2.99/yd.

    I've got a BugSock (101" x 53") made from it that weighs 7.60oz.
    It's pretty durable stuff.

    Wow! Thanks for all the links! I just about have my daughter's finished(needs tarp). Next will be my son's. That's what I want the no-see-um for as he will be camping with me quite a bit next Summer. The skeeters are bad at Summertime up here. After that, I'm doing my wife's. Payday, I will become a donating member as this site has really helped me out. I even bought a few things from the HF store to give back a little. Thanks again everyone!

    +1 for the tulle. It's a little more finicky to sew, but it was only 68 cents a yard at my local WW.

    Using tulle is like disposable bugnets. As long as you can sew one only cost you around $6.00. Just make a new one when need be.

    Ditto for the Tulle. I just restocked for an upcoming DIY project. Pappasmurf and Sgt. Rock have both reported positive results. In fact it was Sgt Rock's bugsock design that nudged me in that direction. Using a 50% off coupon @ Jo-Ann's I was able to buy at $0.65 a yard (54" width).
