I've been looking for the best deal on some material to make a hammock. Prices are all over the place on the ripstop I can find. Usually around $5 a yard($8/yard at joanns!). diygearsupply has some 1.5oz for 3.35/yard, the best I've found so for for ripstop, but still incur shipping so its on much less than joanns for 4 yards with a 40% off coupon(if i can get one).
However I've found a deal on nylon taffeta on ebay, $3/yard with free shipping here.
I'm just concerned that I'll get this and find out its really not going to be strong enough and be out $12 when I could have spend a few bucks more for something I know will work.
Here's the product description
