    The shock cord seemed "sticky", maybe the channel was too small, but in any case, I replaced the shock cord with 1.7 lash-it. Closes easily now.
    I still need to make another bug net for another table cloth hammock I made.
    I think I'll try the Bug Sock next https://www.hammockforums.net/forum/...ad.php?t=21063 with organza from Joann's, seems really light. I would use tulle, but the noseeums might get through. Just chicken I guess
    Good point and I found the shock cord was too thick, it seemed to hanging up on the mesh on mine too, will try thinner shock cord or go to regular line. I think I will also sew the channel smaller, it seems to be trying to gather a lot of fabric and causing it to bunch rather than close.

    I also have a new hammock that I can't seem to get the gather correct so I am trying all this at the same time at home before I take it out. The blackbird is always ready and waiting to go out.
    Cheers

    I goofed. I mixed up organza and tulle. Tulle is the weak one, and organza is reportedly a bit heavier than noseeum net.

    Re: Alternate Source For Noseeum Netting?

    Someone might have already said this but you can get nanoseeum netting at the zpacks website.

    I posted earlier about Joanns, but did not give pricing.

    They carry a white NoSeeUm or as close to NoSeeUm as I can tell and it's pretty strong.

    It's located in the utility section with ripstop and other similar materials. If I remember correctly it's only $3.99/yd and if you get their 50% coupon you're down to just under $2/yd...not bad if you ask me.
