Cheesecloth

Cheesecloth - for straining, cooking, etc: Where would I buy it - and what is it called?

I asked my mother-in-law and she said to call it Manta de Cielo or bambula. She buys it at the farmers market from cheese vendors because, funny enough, cheese cloth is used in the making of cheese.

I am not beng sarcastic, when she told me while it sounded quite obvious, but honestly, it never would have occured to me to ask a cheese vendor.

Damn! That's so funny - and so obvious! I will try to stop by one of my favorite cheese vendors in the market this afternoon and try it! Thank you.
