I am thinking of making a homemade hammock this weekend using Jeff's "W" Whipping technique. I am 5'9". I have a couple of question on the fabric.

1. What type of fabric do you recommend?

2. How much fabric should I buy?

3. What should the length and width be before I tie the ends?

I know your probably going to say it depends on me. But could you give me something to go with on this. It is my first time and I can always change it for the next one, but I need to get the first one done before I play with modifying the next one.
