Nylon Net

I am trying to find a North American source (if possible) for nylon net of the 
type that has been used in adhesive support treatments.  I understand that the 
net used in the UK is a soft, fine fabric, 20 denier monofilament, 540 cm 
wide, and of a hexagonal bobbinet construction.  The only nylon nets that I 
can find in my local fabric stores are either very coarse, rather stiff, or of 
a diamond rather than hexagonal net construction (the tulle used for wedding 
veils).  Those that look appropriate are the background for lace fabric.

Does anyone know of a source for a fine nylon net in Canada or the US?  I need 
this fabric for research purposes and would thus like to match as closely as 
possible what conservators are using in the field.
