    Unless Jon stopped carrying it, I have some of the exact material that you want from Jon. He used to have 2 different types, short and long fiber and it is great stuff. The only reason he would no longer carry it is if he was no longer able to buy it or it was too much money. Send him an email as the stuff that I got from him several years ago is exactly what you need.

    As a follow up I can say that I ordered a light seal kit from Jon. He still has to kind of fabric in his kit. I contacted him and I will get some off cuts included together with some self-adhesive I can use if I get some velvet ribbon. The best way to buy is not using the store at ebay but by direct contact as the fee's at ebay is quite high. I have included a link below and Jon want to say "Hello" to the APUG people :-)

    You might look for mohair. I have some black mohair with a sort of heavy fabric base, but I doubt it would work for you; it's about 3/8 inch wide. It is great for lightproofing doors, homemade cameras, etc. Let me know if you think it might work. I may have to dig around to find it.

    Got it at Boeing surplus a long time ago. Sad. That venerable institution is apparently now gone.

    Wow, what a beautiful creature! I think the kind of mohair I have is not from the genuine mo, but I'm pretty sure that is what it is called. They used to use it for automobile upholstery etc. I doubt that was genuine sheep, but maybe it was.

    The image I'm attaching shows it as used on one of my weird cameras. The scale that is nearest it is in inches. The smaller divisions are 1/10". I regret being unable to find a handy metric scale. There's one around here. Somewhere.

    It looks like some good stuff you have. Better than foam in many cases.
