Unfortunatly I had a little problem with my homemade hammock (read I ended up on the ground). But the good news is that I get to make another one. That got me thinking. What alternatives to ripstop nylon are there? I know there is a lot of talk about silk. I want to hold off on that one until I get everything else right. Plus it is about $7 a yard and only comes in white.
I weigh 225 lbs and am 6'3" so I am going to need something comparable in strength to 1.9 oz ripstop.
What are the HH made of?
