(Australia) Spotlight sells RIPSTOP NYLON!!!
Yay! Went to spotlight today, a massive fabric store, and I said to my Aunt- I wonder if they have rip stop nylon. She said- "ask someone!" so I did, fully expecting the lady to say "no, sorry"- but she said- "Yes, over by the denim" So I have FOUND the magical rip stop nylon! I don't know if it's 1.1 or 1.9, but I will have to go back and get some- I know! I didn't buy it on sight... I'll have to go back with out disbelieving relatives. :)
I stood and felt the fabric- projects flashed through my mind, I'm sure there was a gleam in my eye.
2. Hammock sock.
The only thing is, I don't think it's DWR. I'd have to ask.
Oh- and as I walked out the door, I thought- "I wonder if they have syl?"
