Where can I buy copper mesh/wool in NYC?

I saw a mouse race along the living room wall in my flat yesterday while the workmen were fixing the ceiling in the hallway on my floor. I had no idea there were even mice in the building as I hadn't seen or heard any before yesterday. I'm glad I have a habit of storing food in containers anyway, so that's not an issue.
I've read that the thing to get is copper wool/mesh to stuff in any holes larger than a 1/4 inch in the walls, as it's extremely uncomfortable for the mice to chew on. Fine, but I can't seem to find it at Dome Hepot and Google seems to think I'm trying to make a costume when I look in Google Shopping.
Any suggestions, New Yorkers?
Would get a cat, but I'm highly, highly allergic, unfortunately.
