    Alternate Source For Noseeum Netting?

    I'm about to order stuff for the bugnet on my hammock, but it looks like BackwoodsDayDreamer is out of stock on this netting. Has anyone had success with an alternate vendor? I've seen stuff called "noseeum" netting sold elsewhere, but I don't know if it's really the same material, or just mosquito netting in disguise.

    Round up the usual fabric vendors

    Quest outfitters, OWF, etc. - the people who list a good variety of ripstop, silnylon, insulation and other materials for DIY - what they call no-seeum is no-seeum. There's also the lightweight stuff ("Nanoseeum") at Thruhiker.

    In another thread i saw someone say to use organza in place of noseeum (can't remember what for) but is it as strong? Anyone heard of that instead for a tent door or window?

    Organza works, but it's definitely not as strong, so like many ultralight solutions it means treating equipment gently.

    http://www.owfinc.com/fabrics.html

    They have both standard noseeum at 1.0 oz/sy or noseeum ultra at 0.7 oz/sy which compares in weight to Thru-hiker's nano-seeum. The OWF's ultra is easier to work with than Thru-hiker's nano. Also, the ultra is black and the nano is medium grey. All the standard 1.0 oz/sy stuff is black.

    OWF also has woodland camo noseeum at 1.0 oz/sy

    You can also check Joann's. It's white so I don't know if you have a preference.

    What about sheer curtain fabric? I've seen it suggested before for no-seeum quality. Anyone vouch for it?

    I've heard of it being used in a post last year. I don't know how that turned out. It talked a out really cheap sheer curtains at Walmart.

    I think that's the same post I saw the idea from but haven't really seen any further mention of it. I don't know if that's because it failed or if no one else attempted it.
