is there a sleeve I can purchase or do you have another solution?
The best solution is no solution. In other words, if I understand you correctly, they don't need to be individually wrapped and you don't need to worry about damage from light stands contacting each other. Just toss your stands into a case or bag, whichever you prefer, and they'll be fine.
The manfrotto stand bags are pretty small, there's not much room in there for other than the stands. You may want to get something with considerably more capacity. That way you can throw in a few umbrellas, modifiers, cords etc.
The best value I've come across in stand bags is the On Stage LSB-6500 bag. I got mine through amazon a few years back. It's very well made, well padded and I only paid $30 at the time. It usually carries two c stands, three 12ft stands, a soft box and an assortment of umbrellas. After four years it's still in great shape.
