    Default Bee Veil Material

    I am about to make a couple of bee veils. Currently the top and bottom net material on my veils is tulle. I have noticed that Mann Lake makes a veil with a golden coloured net material. Googled images and r weaver is pictured wearing the same and in my latest ABJ there is also a university beekeeper wearing one.

    What is this mesh material called and what is it made of?

    Would appreciate any help.

    Unfortunately I don't know the answer to your question. I thought it might be helpful to tell you what I use for making veils. I use fiberglass window screen material. It is easy to sew, flexible and works well.

    Think it was determined in a thread a ?couple of years ago that black screen is less distraction when looking through.

    This is the yellow/golden mesh material to which I was referring.
