Tablecloths into hammocks got me to thinking. Could there be a similar approach in the search for the elusive polyester microfiber fabric? TeeDee recommended polyester microfiber as an ideal bridge hammock body fabric for comfort and low stretch in the Bridge Design Principles post.
While searching for polyester microfiber fabric, I found a link to microfiber polyester bed sheets:

The sheets are described as 75 GSM (which I assume is grams/square meter) which converts to 2.21 oz./square yard. A queen flat sheet would yield 2 pieces at 88 long x 51 wide (enough for 2 bridge hammock bodies) and, if my math is right, would come to $2.86/linear yard @ 51 wide. I found them at other stores at lower prices, but no listed weight.
Would these work for hammock bodies you think? Has anyone tried this before?
