In my search for materials here in India I finally touched bases with a guy who owns an adventure shop who can connect me with a few suppliers of nylon. The one is a lady who works with parachute nylon in Goa, but he said that would be expensive (I never really know what that means here ). The other option is he can connect me with the supplier who provides the nylon shell for his sleeping bags.
Does the nylon for hammocks need to be ripstop? Would a lightweight sleepingbag nylon work just as well?
I'm looking on making 4 hammocks, one for each of us in the family, so I would like to not spend a ton of money only to find out nobody else likes hanging besides me
