The question was raised whether there was a cheap alternative to the nylon
netting used in Hyb-aid tubes.

You might want to try the nylon netting used for mosquito screens in tents
(I think it's called no-see-um netting in the U.S. outdoor products trade).

This is a very fine soft nylon net, and it must not cost too much.  I'd imagine
that a little washing would be sufficient to make it suitable for hybridization
(that is, residues on the net, as-is, would be a possible source of background
as it leaches out).

Give it a try.  If you make it work, please post your results, and I'll give
it a try here.
