I've wanted to learn how to weave my own mayan style hammock, but using that double weave technique so it can hold more weight. I have never been able to find the directions for that technique anywhere.
I think mason line would be fine for this application, assuming that the weave is dense enough. Cotton would be far more comfortable but more prone to stretching. I hear that the loom has to be pretty big, and the job is long and tedious. I know a guy that in his spare time weaves his own casting nets, and he says that on and off, it takes about 3 to 6 months to complete.
Psalm 19:1-3 "The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork. Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge. There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard."
This doesn't show a whole lot of detail, but if someone knows the basics of related crafts they may be able to figure it out.
I may be slow... But I sure am gimpy.
"Bless you child, when you set out to thread a needle don't hold the thread still and fetch the needle up to it; hold the needle still and poke the thread at it; that's the way a woman most always does, but a man always does t'other way."
