    Also, if you're looking for materials suggestions, Warbonnet has a handy-dandy comfort vs. occupant weight vs. fabric weight guide located here.

    If you want to make a double-layer hammock, DIY Gear Supply has very easy-to understand instructions located here. There are also guides for bug nets, and a couple other things located in the parent directory.

    Or, check out the stickies at the top of this forum; several of them pertain to making your own hammock.

    Hope it goes well!

    Just remember..the longer the hammock, the longer the tarp.

    Most stock fabric is 50-64"+ wide, (it varies) Most sites will list width, if they don't, ask before buying. Some sites may try to sell you narrower fabric at big width prices.
