The lightest fabric I feel decently comfortable with is a 70d Nylon Taffeta (actual weight around 1.69oz)
An even better choice (for my weight and preferences) is a 1.8oz Polyester Taffeta. I've always had good nights with this fabric.
When I'm not testing hammocks in the workshop, my regular everyday sleeper is a SL 2.3oz Poly/Nylon Blend in Woodland Camo.
Just curious PS, do you have any plans on making your 1.8 Poly part of your regular line of materials? I love mine! The brown color and the feel of the hammock is great as well. It's my new go-to hammock.
