I've been hanging my heavy frame in 1.1 oz single layer DIY hammocks for years with no problems at all. I recall the heavy loads that my 0.75 oz ripstop spinnaker saw, in 20 knots of wind, without failure, and rest easy.
I make DIY hammocks 11' long. I don't think 12' is a radically long hammock, or that 64" is a radically wide hammock.
A couple of years ago, I gave a 11'x5' DIY single layer 1.1 oz hammock to a tall mother who hangs with her daughter. Learned later that they really enjoy it, and have developed their own method of hanging together. Daughter uses a HH and hangs above momma between the same trees. She actually steps into momma's 1.1 oz single layer DIY hammock to get into her HH BEEP!
