Jecklin disk windscreen material?

Hi all,
I made this Jecklin disk
<>  out of a piece of
thin marine-grade plywood and the pick-n-pluck padding from a pelican
case, it took me all of an hour and it sounds great. It's closer to the
shape of a human head (similar to the angles of the Neumann dummy head)
while still respecting the Jecklin concept of space between the mic and
the foam surface. So far, I'm very happy with my recordings & my Jecklin
disk still keeps my mics nice and safe inside of their pelican case.

These pics are from a year ago, and the setup has changed a bit, but I'm
still using it with the same mics, the Beyerdynamic MC930's, with great
results. We use Sanken's and DPA's as well, but the Beyers constantly
impress me. I'm surprised I never hear anyone mention them.

Anyway, I'm wondering what kind of wind-resistant fabric I should use to
wrap the whole rig with? I've heard that light 4-way stretch fleece
works and is for the most part, sonically neutral. Maybe there's a more
professional solution? I know Telinga sells a windscreen wrap for their
parabolics, anyone know what it's made of? I just wanted to ask around
before I go sifting through bins of women's leggings at my local
department store.
