    HELP!!! I am looking for brown 1.1oz Silnylon.

    Amanda wants to make her a brown and pink hammock set up. I have found the brown 1.9 ripstop, and pink, but I cannot find a brown Silnylon anywhere !! She is really looking for a chocolate color.

    If you have some for sale, please let me know. I will need at least 6 yards, preferable 8 or more. I have checked all the normal fabric suppliers as well.

    Please Help

    I have spent hours on the Internet searching for silnylon similar in color to that you get with the HH sil hex tarp, or can get with the JRB 11'x10'.

    no luck.

    Suggest you start working on expectations management. Grey and pink would be nice, royal blue and pink even better.

    but brown in sil? sorry...

    Nooooooooooooo , there has to be some somewhere !!! She said it is brown and pink or nothing. If it has to be blue, then it would be with Canary yellow. All we need is another Banana Hammock like Jazilla's .

    Thanks Grizz, If I do find some, I'll pass it along.

    this is what we call in my business an over-constrained problem. Which just means you need to use imagination, $$, or both to solve it.

    Option A : buy a tarp from HH or JRB in the right color and take out the seams. Bask in her glowing adoration that despite all odds, Her Man delivered her heart's desire.

    Option B : Get some 1.1 oz ripstop in brown (I've done this). Coat it yourself with a silicone mix. I've read instructions on doing this, mostly people think you're better off buying sil. But when She Who Must Be Obeyed says it is brown and pink or nothing, then this may be the most cost-effective option.

    Option C : Get some grey sil, and issue her some Wayfarer sunglasses with brown lenses.

    Option D : Do actually find it, let us all know, and be declared HF Hero of the First Order.

    I now last time I talked to Ed Speer he said that he had been getting the brown in limited quantities, as seen in some of the brown Speer Winter Tarps. I have no idea is he has extra or would even be willing to sell you any but it's worth a shot.

    I called Kifaru and they told me that their fabric supplier is Performance Textiles Inc. The Good news is that they are right here in the US of A. They are supposed to call me back, so cross your fingers that they are not like Magna.
