    That's the thing Joe, when the sheet netting came in, it was basically all 4" full mesh by 15 mesh deep, usually in 150 yards stretched, the manufacturers at the time used this mesh size due to the stretch in nylon,, plus the knot type the machine could throw but that was years back, these days depending on yarn,, knot type, and place of manufacture we can go up slightly in mesh size regarding stretched mesh size,, these days the nylon nets are set not only by heat but also taking into account how they are stretched, be it length ways or depth ways before being set to ensure uniformed mesh throughout the said net.. I still have an old net here that is 4z in 4" made by knox the net makers from Kilbirnie in Scotland,, and by god it stretches,, not by a lot though, say up to an 1/8th or so, but a good net when I think back as there is more knitted in repairs than the original twine, ,, the joys of being a night time netters never ever done,, either mend or replace.

    I don't think them at rabbit fever have much knowledge regarding nets as they also state that there Z twist nets are spun nylon. Many years ago on here there was a bit of a debate regarding how one measures meshes, the majority measured on the stretch (diamond) and a few on the square (half mesh).

    That's the shade it came out,, you need to be careful whilst dying nylons, due to shrinkage, the other one of the same material came out a sort of jade shade.

    Wasn't the best

    Good on yous both,, F all wrong in drawing a blank, it happens, not often but it happens due to numerous reasons, which are beyond our control. This night time netting is slowly but surely going out of favour which is extremely painful, so keep up the good work lads. Regards
