I'm new to the forum -- just made one other post over on the Bridge Hammock thread. Anyway, I've been reading a lot about making hammocks. I went to the Wal Marts today, and found what looks like ripstop. I picked up 10 yrds, 60 inches wide. If my math is close, thats like 16.66 sq yrds. The total weighs about 2 lbs, or about 1.9 oz per yd. So, do you think it could possibly be 1.9 ripstop nylon? Here is a picture -- don't you love the snowboarder pattern? If you think it is, I'll probably go back in the morning and get the rest of it.
