    The JoAnn ripstop is generally accepted as being 1.7oz (or is it 1.9oz, I can never remember which is the standard). This weight should be plenty strong as a single layer hammock for most people.

    1.9oz. It's 70 denier. Their "Sport ripstop" is type 6.6 nylon (better than type 6). Always use the 40-50% coupon when buying from them.

    I may be wrong, but if you're looking specifically 1.5, I thought I saw that backwoods day dreamer had some.

    What does "type 6.6" etc mean?

    I just bought some of that 1.5 from Scotty and it's nice material perfect for my weight. The color isn't to bad either, when I bought it I was thinking it would be the Sil-nylon grey but it actually is deeper in color.

    I would say it does have a green tone to it. But it is gray. Clear as mud right!

    I may have to order some of that 1.5. A single layer of 1.1 may work, but at 185lbs 1.5 may do me better. I've never made a hammock before but it seems so simple, I've been wanting to make a smaller one, like nano 7 size. I know its 9' x 4' but I'm not sure if that's the raw material size or what. I'm only 5'8" so I think it could work for me.
