I use Jeff's W fold on the foot and HC4U's fold at the head. Even though the muletape can be slick, it hasn't slipped yet on the polyester fabric. If it did slip I believe the bunched end hems will keep me off the ground/floor.
    OK, whipping is technically wrapping a spiral of smaller line around the end to keep it together. For our purposes, "whipping" will encompass any gathering method that lets you hang....

    Mule tape rocks. I still have 1000' of it or so... towed a friend's buggy a the desert with the stuff...

    I've got plastic tie-wraps on my latest small DIY hammock. Seems okay so far.
