I bet that ultralite nylon (like the stuff sold at kite-making sites)
would work better for containing insulation as it would help keep air
currents away from it.
You might consider the two kinds of mesh netting sold in the fabric
section of WalMart. The more open kind, labeled "Nylon Mesh" looks
good for holding up stuff. The smaller stuff might work for bug
netting. It's smaller and lighter than something you could make by
hand I expect.
