Mylar sail material

OK. I have built a Footy from the Victor kit. I would like to make a set of very light sails from mylar (or any other light weight material). What is a good source for a small quantity?

Sorry about where this question ended up. Thought I clicked on sail not scale boats.

Also used by florists. They will probably give you enough - especially if you buy a bribe for the missus!

Thanks, guys. I know somebody that has no problem getting "brownie points" to do things he likes to do.
