Where to buy sandfly netting by the meter?

I want to buy some very fine sandfly netting. It's also called noseeum mesh in the USA, and in the UK they talk about it being fine enough to stop Scottish Midges. I'm going to make a head-net of course, but also a big net bag, big enough to go over my entire torso down to my waist, so I can lounge around outside in fiordland reading a book or eating my lunch, with my upper body inside the big net bag. It sounds ridiculous but my mother made one for me when I was teenager and it was an excellent thing. Spotlight: No, their netting is too coarse, will only stop mosquitoes. Outdoors shops: No, they only sell small ones for your head. Aliexpress: Might have it, but it's swamped and buried amidst tens of thousands of other netting products which only stop mosquitoes. Ebay: Has some Scottish Midge netting but it's so expensive. Might have to buy there. Anyone got another place to suggest?
I've heard it being used for tent inner-shell. Try your luck but I expect mainstream suppliers manufacture out of China. Hunting & Fishing-type outlets have 'head-cages' for fishermen etc. Those aren't hard to source in NZ. I just use cheapo "Rivet Rain Pants & Anorak in a bag" from the RedShed if I'm going to be hanging out in savage lands. About $25 & 250g each. Up to size 4XL :) . They stash back into their own zipped pocket. https://www.thewarehouse.co.nz/dw/image/v2/AAWO_PRD/on/demandware.static/-/Sites-twl-master-catalog/default/dw67a64a5b/3f/c8/R1799215_00.jpg https://www.thewarehouse.co.nz/on/demandware.static/-/Sites-twl-master-catalog/default/dwf437e7ad/71/d1/R1799195_40.jpg ps. I have looked at disposable paperish safety overalls, but "Meh" !.
Yes, I may just buy an old tent from the Dump Shop for$5 and cut the mesh out of it. They have several tents for sale usually.

Thanks for the tip @Pro-active , if that's able to stop sandflies I've found what I'm looking foor. Cheers!
