That is a possibility. I'll order a yard of the the stuff that kitebuilder.com has and see what I end up with. At worse I'm out about $15 after shipping.
I was just Googling for something like that. I'm on the hunt for a new hammock to make. I want a ripstop fabric that is 0.6oz or less per sq yard. I want it to be uncoated and 60" wide.
I plan on making my first double layer hammock and want it to be roughly the same weight as mine now which uses uncoated 1.1oz.
If we can get enough interest in something that is basically uncoated M50 (~0.5oz/yd) maybe we could rig up a group buy? I'd be down for 12 yards so I could make two hammocks. I don't need it downproof, just strong enough in a DL to make a 9'x4.5'(or 5') hammock.

It's not procrastinating, its proactively delaying the implementation of the energy-intensive phase of the project until the enthusiasm factor is at its maximum effectiveness.
