    Check out papa smurfs dream hammock site he uses the same material/
    FYI: If you want to know what type a certain bear is, sneak up behind it and kick it. Then,
    run like crazy and climb up a tree. If the bear climbs the tree and eats you, it's a black
    bear. If the bear just pushes the tree over and eats you, it's a grizzly bear : )


    Do not walk behind me, for I may not lead. Do not walk ahead of me, for I may not follow. Do not walk beside me, either, just leave me alone.

    FYI, I made a diy hammock out of the same material----its really strong and doesnt stretch much. I like it!

    I've had over 350# in one made of the same material this weekend and it held up fine. Note that said 350# was three people in it, not me

    I ordered some to make my hammock. I'm interested as well. I was going to make it a double layer just because of the way I wanted the two tone to look. I just couldn't make up my mind. Well, fabric.com made it up for me. They sent me an email this morning that they were short on the gray. Guess it will be a sl now.
