Having two kids under 10, and dreaming of thawing snow and green trees in the mountains - I am looking at making hammocks for my kids. Seeing that most designs are starting off with approx 3.5yds, I question how this will feel to someone smaller? If made one, what was the rough/finished length. Was it worth the trouble?
This is with the assumption that mostly these will be a gathered-end hammock - no need for a footbox at this point
