    It is possible that it is one of those brand names that we all take for granted, like band-aid, or crescent wrench.
    If your willing to get it online then Sites like this are available
    http://www.ahh.biz/mesh/mesh_no_see_...ng_0_25_mm.php

    If you want to purchase it locally all you are really looking for is a polyester mesh with a 1mm weave. That is usually between 600 and 675 holes per square inch.

    Ask around at your local fabric store, I'm sure they know more about it then me.

    Good luck!

    Noseeums are basically the US version of midges so look for midge netting. This site has some stuff that looks quite good, it's in Germany though, shipping isn't too bad. http://www.extremtextil.de/catalog/F...da6bff80fbcca5

    The way that's worded, with lingerie, makes me think it's not very strong.

    I see, did you email him to buy some? He doesn't have it listed for sale on the site.
