Red fibre

Does anyone know where I can buy red fibre in sheet form? I need 1/16" and 1/8"

Thanks!

I took a look at their product catalogue, but they don't seem to have anything that looks like red fibre. I actually need it for the small round 'biscuits' that separate the streamine flying wires on the Tiger Moth where they cross - so they should at least look like the original red fibre material. The 16th inch I need is for a similar application inside the wings where drag wires cross, so the appearance in there doesn't matter.

Ian,
Do you mean the stuff that fibre washers are made of ?

Could you not stick 2 layers together with some suitable glue. Mike
