Green Screen material in UK?

Any good online websites based in UK I can get Green screen material from? I'm not looking for expensive stuff, just normal material that I can work with. I need the phone to be about 4-5 meters squared. The only places I have found have the material as long as you want but only 1 meter wide. I don't want to have to layer them.

Thanks

Well, just went round to my local material shop and picked up a 2m strip. Did a test last night that turned out pretty well. Just a few things I've got to tweak, such as lighting and also making sure the subject isnt too close to the green screen

I think it's just a plain strip of cotton. 43" wide by 2 metres in length. 4 it cost. Bargain i'd say. Its about the same size as a doorframe but a bit wider. If I needed anything wider I would go and buy some more and layer them (obviously making sure I dont get shadows)

Thanks stewart, Tell us how you get on.

I might pop down to my local Frabric land and see what they have.

All the best,
