    Materials for Hmmock project

    Hi everyone

    I am looking at making my first DIY hammock in the next few weeks and i just wanted to know where the best place to source my materials would be, as I live in the UK?

    I want to make a light weight net-less hammock just for scout and stealth camping so, I preferably want to get the lightest rip stop nylon I can buy for a decent price.

    If anyone might know of a good source it would be good to be pointed in the right direction as I am finding it hard to find any sources outside the united states.

    Thanks

    I have found this place online. Have not brought anything from them yet.
    But it looks like they have all the stuff you will need to make a hammock.
