    Hey adventurer, what weight does it seem to be? I am planning on making some gathered end hammocks for a few friends that want to give hanging a go. Two of them are big fellas and i want to make sure the hammock dosen't drop em.. so is it 1.1, 1.5ish or 1.9? I couldn't find a reference to it on the site.
