We haven't washed it, but i hope it will soften it and take some of the noise out. My wife's hammock was made from 10' of fabric and it stuffs down to the size of a 2qt sauce pot with 7' whoopies, 12' tree straps, and adj. ridgeline. My hammock has the same specs and it packs just smaller than my size 9.5 running shoe. Hope that helps a little.
    Thanks for the info! I just placed my order and hopefully will have time to get put together all the gear over the next few weeks.

    I received the fabric and am fairly satisfied with it although its not ideal. I don't think I will be purchasing any more. The DWR coating is not that comfortable to the touch and it just doesn't feel as good to me as my other nylon ripstop I've used for my other projects. It also packs a good bit bulkier than my ACU ripstop i got from magnafabrics. I ordered the hot pink and white and have plans on making a TQ, UQ, DIY WBBB, and hex tarp. So far I've only finished the TQ. Here are a few pics. I plan on putting up a thread in the DIY section once I finish all the other parts of this pink project.
