    Still probably get something from her when I get time for another project - those prices are the lowest I've seen anywhere.
    It's kinda a weird setup. She is selling off the stock from a store that has closed. When I bought my ripstop I had to wait a couple of days before I she gave me the cost of shipping and I could finish payment. It could be that she isn't really that familar with fabrics to begin with. That's one of the draw backs of buying from Ebay

    The ripstop I ordered was exactly what it said it was. I bought 4 yard @ 2.50 per yard and I was charged 2.25 for shipping. Pretty cheap hammock.

    Material

    I had a bad experience with this woman over the weekend. She listed 4 yards of 330 cordoba and I used the buy it now option. I requested a total price with shipping . She sent me a message yesterday and said she only had 3 yards of the material. Said she was sorry . I will never try to deal with her again no matter how good the prices. I hate it when people list stuff on ebay and don't even have it to sell.

    She does say:

    *Please understand that the yardage listed in an estimated guess, last buyer may be shorted*
    When I ordered my ripstop she only had 6 yards. I bought 4 because I was afraid that I would get shorted if I ordered it all. She seems to have large quantities of the Supplex and other materials. I would feel safer ordering 5 yards if she had a total of 85 yard to sell.

    Well I just ordered the nylone taffeta that Arkwater used and the $1.25 a yard supplex I linked. I'll let everyone know how it goes.
    Is that too much to ask? Girls with frikkin' lasers on their heads?

    I know there is a lot of talk about silk. I want to hold off on that one until I get everything else right. Plus it is about $7 a yard and only comes in white.
    hammock engineer,
    If the color of silk ultimately puts you off, you can get dye ( & silk) pretty cheaply here http://www.dharmatrading.com/html/en...lnav=dyes.html

    Thanks for the link. I'll keep that in mind for the 4th hammock. I already ordered enough of the other fabric to make 2, probibly 3 hammocks, and a travel pod. I figured for that price I may as well get enough for when I mess up.

    The silk I saw on that site was still about $7 a yard. The other fabric I ordered is $1.50 a yard. If it works out, I should save a little on the price.
