Looking for about a square meter (ideally, will take anything) of white noseeum-grade bug netting. Not the basic grid stufone goyf but the real fine stuff for keeping out sandflys.

Any got any lying about?

Sandflies are attracted to dark colours, esp the NZ ones, so maybe that's why he wants white?

Having survived about 100 days in NZ west coast sandfly territory, I think I've got it pretty well down pat, but my specific aim is fly fishing...dark pants, to keep them around your legs, pale top, black headnet if trying to Polaroid trout through it ( white provides too much reflection to see through) pale hat,home made Lycra socks and gauntlets and Lycra gloves to keep the little buggers off your legs and wrists and hands.

Maybe the OP can elaborate about potential use?

OK and I didn't know that about sandflies
Using fine black inside coarse white would work because I use that sometimes when I remember to take the hat tent
