    Organza @ Tableclothsfactory?

    Anyone use tableclothsfacotry.com's organza to make a bug net? I've read that Organza could make a good netting and was thinking it might work to add it to a tablecloth hammock I'm building. Its 9' Square so it should be plenty of material for a Fronkey bug net project. Any thoughts?

    I used curtain mesh. It was recommended on here. Tough and very cheap, 5-10$.

    I thought about it, but all their round organza overlays appear to have SEAMS (two pieces of fabric joined together). Their rectangular organza overlays are not wide enough. Their rectangular organza runners would make good vent panels at the top of a TED winter sock.

    Let us know if you figure something else out.

    Yes, it's very much cheaper than what I was considering before.

    I was thinking of folding the organza overlays in half on the diagonal. It looks like the big rectangle one has a seam too. It was a good thought.
