The timing on this is just way too cool. I just got the whoopies installed on my son's cheapo parachute hammock. Now I need some insect protection and "voila", instructions in my first search.
Rather than sew the ends I may just leave them open for now. I want to be able to install/remove without taking down the hammock. Perhaps if I put a length of shock cord along each bottom edge so I can tie it together at the corners if that would keep the netting in place? Maybe a few short tabs of velcro to close off the ends just a bit (keep it from sliding off). This would add a little weight but make it more flexible for my purposes.
Great idea....just what I was looking for.
