    question about claytor tablecloth hammock

    Hey guys, I just made an end channel claytor type table cloth hammock. I like it--feel s great!---but after hanging in it for a while, I noticed the fabric seems really stressed/thread holes elongated where the channel is sewn to the hammock body. Has anyone else ever noticed this---and is an indication of impending failure?

    Never noticed that on any of my hammocks, even the ones that stretched out with use. Does sound like impending failure, but I'm not an expert. Guessing you need to use heavier fabric next time.
