I have always thought about making a hammock wider than I am tall and see how it feels. But most fabrics are only 60-65" wide. I'm 74" tall. Hense my dilemma. I have thought about sewing two together, but I just haven't yet. Would the seem detract from the comfort? I know I can't be the only one to think of this?[/QUOTE]
I know I've seen some really wide nylon out there. I remember seeing some at 100 or 120", and almost see thru white. It may have been on extremetextil, or one of the uk fabric sites
For a wide hammock, one method would be to sew three lengths together, so the main body doesn't have any seams and the "wings" don't have to be as wide.
