I gave mine a wash yesterday in warm water with a small amount of fabric softener and the material feels much nicer now.
I did some reading last night on different whipping and cinching techniques so it is going to be some trying them all out to see which one works best for me.
Nice work Tendertoe! I'm glad you found the comfort you were seeking!
Can I ask how you have done your suspension? From the first pic it looks like you have a continuous loop going through the channel and the you have attached your webbing directly to the loop. The webbing then has a couple of half hitches in it to set the suspension length (like the Ray Mears method without the rings). Is this correct?
Your in with a lot of us now. Good work!! (except mine is my camping hammock )
I had to take out the gathered end in my 90's because it brought the sides up too high and made floppy side issues. I also don't notice a "give" in any of these. Perhaps I misunderstood that part though. We'll have to have a "Tablecloth hang" sometime What a colorful woods that would make
Will miss you guys at the hang this weekend.
The tableclothfactory.com is probably scratching their heads right now, trying to figure out why their sales have doubled recently!

DivaB, you ended up with a fanfold gather right? I'd think the channel end would make a cocoon out of it myself. I need to play with that 90 again. I kind of put it aside after I finished it. I just did a grab and gather from the middle.
