    If anyone ever finds 4 oz canvas let me know, okay? I've looked until my eyes have bugged out!

    The lightest I saw was 6 oz painter's drop cloth.

    I am working on a new hammock sock now using 7 oz cotton canvas. I know a few people who have used the sock you are referring too and didn't have the best night's sleep. The one I made last year was similar and I still got some condensation. What I'm working on now should eliminate the problem completely.

    I should have the one I'm working on in a couple of weeks and will make a video on how well it works up here in the nations ice box. If you guys like the design then maybe I'll make a how to video on how to make one.

    Judging by your past projects, start making the video now.

    No point wasting our time making us wait on it.

    Haha I've written it all down and drawn up the design.

    This should be an easy project for people and
    I want to have a written instructional to go along with the video.

    Basically I want this project to be as easy as the fronkey bugnet.

    Now that I'm thinking about it. One of these could be a fun item for the 2012 fronkey giveaway. Hehe

    Dibs? And if not, I'm waiting semi-patiently for the instructions to make my own.
