Does anyone know if this exists? I'd like to try reloading some 126 cartridges but I don't want to lose the top of the picture to sprocket holes with normal 35mm film. I'll welcome any suggestions.

Thanks!

Nope, doesn't exist. Some people use unperforated 35mm microfilm but they have to punch holes in it to make the film transport mechanism of the cameras work. How they do the punching in total darkness is beyond me, sounds like too much hassle.

There are tips on how to use normal 35mm film in a 126 cartridge. I've seen many on youtube or instructables.com. There is a trick where you hold down the shutter button while you wind the film on so the perforations dont confuse the mechanism.

Why not give it a try and report back your findings.
