    Most large fabric store sell a cylindrical stretch fabric called "ribbed stockenette"(sorry not sure about the proper spelling)

    I have used Black/Brown double polyester for years. Be sure to paint the surface flat black so it doesn't show though

    You can use anything from black velour from your local fabric store (on my current sub) to speaker grill fabric found at www.partsexpress.com (on my old sub).
    Check out the local fabric store and just wander around to see what will work well for you.

    The stuff I got from Fabricland cna practically be used on the untreated sonotube and still look professionally good. Even so, I would smooth out the sonotube seams somewhat and paint it black before applying the "sock". Check out the local Fabricland in your area. They should have it. It comes in different colours and sizes. The most narrow one worked well for my 18" diameter sonotube.
