    My entire family will be at my house for a few days around Christmas so I ordered tablecloths for all my nephews and niece. I figure it will be a fun project to do one day while they are here and it's part of their Christmas presents...win/win

    Polyester versus Crinkle Taffeta

    Is there a difference in fabric strength/durability between the Polyester versus the Crinkle Taffeta 60x126 retangular tablecloths?

    I'll certainly check with the manufacturer (and will share what i learn), but thought perhaps someone on the forum may already have first-hand hammock familiarity in the case.

    DIY hammocks would be a great project for my entire scout troop, but of course we're on a budget and would like to save a few bucks if we can (at least $135 in this case, for the 30+ we'd need to purchase).

    Any insights or experiences you could kindly provide would be sincerely appreciated. Thanks very much for your time and consideration.

    Happy new year!

    I'm not sure Polyester would make a good hammock. I recommend signing up for the email alerts or news letter form tableclothfactory.com. You'll get emails about sales or free shipping events.

    I've made hammocks from both their crinkle taffeta and polyester. The taffeta is lighter duty and better suited for making camping hammocks. My indoor hammock is made from their polyester. Very sturdy and comfortable. I don't have to baby it at all. Read about it here: http://www.hammockforums.net/forum/s...t.php?p=787639
