Sounds odd putting it that way. I really don't know what you would call it. Where I come from it's called knitting heads or mesh. I am making mesh/netting for a tractor. I am wondering if it would work as good as chicken wire. First of all it's nylon and it stands up to most weather conditions. The nylon I am using is used in lobster traps. I used to knit head for a living waaaaay back in the day. Anyway...I am wondering if you think it would work as well as chicken wire. Here are the reasons why I am going this route. I paid 60.00 for the nylon. That is fairly cheap for the amount that I bought. I think that is very reasonable in price. I am pretty sure it is more than enough for a large tractor. It will stand up to any weather conditions. Maybe not lightening. I can make the mesh any size I need it. It's lightweight and is easy to handle unlike wire. The only thing that worries me is animals chewing through it. I am here all day and I am pretty sure if my chickens are in some sort of enclosure the fox will leave them be. They have not bothered them before when in a fenced in area. If I let them free range within a week they would be gone. We do shoot the fox when we can but they are a hard target. Does anyone have any experience with nylon netting? I would love to hear how it works if your using it. I am going ahead and am going to give it a try. Now all I need is some good plans. If you know of some good plans please direct me to them. Thanks. Never buy nylon rolls/balls through the mail. I had to go to Searsport to return what I bought cause it was the wrong size. It was almost rope. Searsport from here is about an hour and a half drive. Sighs. Live and learn.
