I only use it when installing bug net so I don't have to mess with that. With just a GE hammock I don't see the need unless its to add that extra spark. Then I say go for it and good luck. I just finished a blaze orange tarp with royal grosgrain. I never did find the 3/4 or 7/8 I like to use and ended up going with 5/8. It was a pain but the end product is so worth it.
