    Yes. And yes. Pull out the interior strands. You lose a minuscule amount of weight, but it makes it more stretchy, which helps it grab and hold.

    OK!! You talked me into it!
    I just ordered two of the 90x156 cloths. One in Red and one in Ivory.

    We'll see how they do!

    My other DIY is made of an 8 ounce nylon material. Fairly heavy, but then so am I. Also have a Hennesey and three South American hammocks.

    Thanks for the idea!
