    Question Question: Ideal dimensions for diy taffeta hammock

    Greetings,

    I need some advice on making an indoor taffeta hammock. For someone 6'4" (76") and 205 lbs what would be the best dimensions to go with from tableclothsfactory?

    60"x102"
    60"x126"
    90"x132"
    90"x156"


    Any help would be appreciated!

    I'd say that if you are not lugging it around the woods make it as big as possible. At 90" one could sleep athwartship for the flattest lay.

    Consider the room

    I have made several hammocks in each of the three largest sizes. I am 6 foot and can sleep comfortably in any of them but prefer the two largest. The 156x90 is huge. Since you mentioned that you are planning on using this indoors, the size of the room versus the leangth of the hammock plus suspension becomes a limiting factor. Based on my own preferences and your size, I would reccomend the largest that will fit in your planned space.

    Thanks for the feed back, I'll go with the largest.
