so I pick up my MYOG hammock today and I look at the gathered end and I see this
I pull it out of my bishop bag and saw them at the other end near the gathered end as well. It looks like the fabric is failing and I don't know why. This is 1.9 nylon from DIYGearSupply and the hammock is 8ft long 5 ft wide. It's the second hammock to show this kind of wear. My first one was 1.1 and I just assumed I was too close to the weight limit to make that fabric work when it ripped straight across from side to side just past my feet. Now I know I'm a bit overweight but I'm nowhere near the weight limit for 1.9.
I'm gearing up for a 3 day hike in July and I have to have my hammock and where I'm going, I can't have it fail on me. I made both hammock exactly like Kontty's gathered end sticky post says to and I have no idea what I'm doing wrong.
