Hey gang, I've been crazy busy this month trying to keep up with your orders. Thanks so much for not allowing me to rest.
First off, I need to lead with correcting an error. I have been carrying a thread called "Tera 40", which I had labeled a Tex 40 in size. I was wrong, it's tkt 40, not tex 40 (tkt is just a number system within Gutermann). So, Tera 40 is actually tex 75. It should still work fine on most all home sewing machines, but if for some reason it has not fit in your machine, please contact me for a replacement spool. We will now be carrying Tera 60, which is the same construction as the Tera 40, but Tera 60 is Tex 50, so much closer to the normal tex40 weight thread we use most often for hammocks.
Now... I wanted to let you know I just got in a few new, pretty cool, fabrics.
1. 30d Ripstop Nylon with Metalized Reflective finish on one side. Navy Blue. 60"+ wide.
- This stuff is an amazing heat reflector. I've been using it in freezer bag cozies with Insultex and climashield - holy snot it works good! Only 100yds available.
2. 70d Taffeta - bright yarn, crinkle finish. Black. 60"+ wide.
- This is it... what so many have been looking for. The elusive "parachute nylon hammock" fabric! It is the very same fabric you find in all those well known "parachute" hammocks (did someone say ENO???)... I was only able to score a 100yd roll, so it's on a very limited batch at DIY Gear Supply right now. I will work on obtaining this as a stock item, but for now 100yds is all I've got.
There are also some other new items. You'll have to browse around. And we have more coming.
