You buy it by the foot. Very reasonable pricing

You will need a good length, with the 12" drums you need six (6) feet. I replaced the lining on my Coupe after nearly 40 years of service...

Could you use this material for the emergency brake lining on the interior brake band for a 26/27 model t? If so which type would be best? Thanks John

John, you don't want any wowen metallic inside the transmission. Go with a wood or Kevlar band for the transmission brake.
For the emergency brake McMaster Carr may have something that works, though I guess the lining from the vendors should be just as good. If the lining you find is just a bit too thick, you'll have a lot of trouble grinding it down to fit.. You'll want the lining to be less than 3/16", more like 5/32" thick to be an easy fit in 26/27 drums.

John, I have torn down some tranys with this type band material, seemed to be hard on the drums. KGB

I should have explained better but thanks for the replies. I should have said the rear drum emergency brakes interior, since we were talking about Rocky Mountain type brake linings. I have several (6 sets) to do and thought this would be a more frugal way to gain a quality outcome than buying 6 sets from the venders. Thanks again it's this type of help from the combine wealth of experience representative by each of you that makes our hobby viable. So now the question remains although reframed a bit.
