    Thats what I call having faith in one's own sewing.

    hate to find a mistake in the test run. a little higher then the foot or so in a hammock.

    but i say we should all bombard HH and JRB til they reveal the source of the coveted brown sil. or at least sell it to us...

    The "HOT" parachutes used to be all sil, the milder versions(these would only break an ankle instead of both femurs if you botched a landing) were DWR with a sil top sheet. Everybody is always looking for smaller,lighter stuff (like us) so they are probably using the lighter stuff now.

    who wants in?

    hey, it looks like we all really want brown silicone impregnated nylon. i will wait in order to buy it. I can buy for 50 yards. thats 1950 to go, who will invest. I am moving in 3 weeks onto my bicycle, so i cannot be the one to puchase the bulk/ then distribute it. if someone will buy the roll and then post it on ebay price per yard and then say "2000 available" etc, then we could all buy the quantity we want. I think someone would be willing to invest in it from this website if everyone on here says "im in, and i want (this many) yards" etc. lets make this happen! thanks

    Yes - who's going to be the one to piece out 2,000 yards in small yard pieces??

    In order to keep your sanity, you would probably have to make that a minimum order of 100 yards !?!?!? Lets see 4 yds/hammock ..... Do you really need that many hammocks or quilts or overcovers or .... !?!?!?

    I wish that it could be a go, but at $6/yard, it really is unreasonable. Amanda and I buy 100 yards at a time, and we cannot just sit on $600+ of fabric. We would have to raise our prices again, and that is not something that I would like to do. Sure the brown is a good color, but we have black, and that is ok too.

    Amanda wanted the Brown, to make a brown and pink tarp, to match a brown and pink hammock . I would like brown, but I can wait till it comes a long at a better price.
