I'm not sure what sort of material you are talking about the fragile gas
light mantle is unrepairable and has to be replaced with an new one. The
old lanterns used to have a clothlike quality when fitted and on
ignition expanded to the familiar hard shell.
The blocks of white stuff that glow incandescent in gas fires can be
repaired to a certain extent with clay -ordinary garden clay will do but
white clay would be more likely to give a closer match. Mix it with
50-50 water and pva. You can use it straight away. Patching it with
polyfiller may work with pva but if you neglect the pva, leave it to dry
out completely and be prepared for failure.

From the required use, I am guessing that you want a metal mesh. If so, try
Mirlyn Wire in Hove, East Sussex (I don't currently have their number to
hand). They will probably have what you want but will need to know material,
wire size and mesh size.
