First timer, considering a DIY project, Fabric Questions...
I searched the forum and found some answers but certainly not all, so I turn to you for further enlightenment.
Commercially it seems to be all over the map as well as cottage and DiY'ers. Evidently you can use just about any fabric to make a hammock.
So why do most cottages use ripstop nylon? Is it weight, cost, ...is everyone just trying to get the most weight capacity with the lowest weight fabrics?
ENO fabric is what? Is that the crinkle taffeta that gets referred to with the table cloth hammocks? ENO and GT use similar/same fabrics?
Pardon my ignorance here, but I am very interested in your thoughts, everyone's thoughts...
That parachute type fabric?
I have not seen anyone posting about the fabrics used on ENO or GT, is it not available, if so where? Why doesn't anyone else use it? Help please. Thanks.
