Much obliged for the detailed and timely information.
It seems like 8mm silk will work for my 166 lb. carcass.
Do you find the silk gauze to be noseeum proof?
I intend to treat the gauze with permethrin so even if the gauze is
not midge proof they probably would not survive crawling through
BTW- I add some liquid woolite to the 0.5% permethrin solution.
This reduces the surface tension of the liquid resulting in the
netting being thoroughly wetted and retaining more liquid during
the drying process. This presumably will result in the netting
having more permethrin attached to it when dry.
