    11' Double Layer

    On a budget, but figured I'd put out a feeler anyway.

    I'm looking for a double layer tablecloth-type hammock (double layer so it will accept a pad) that's 11' long. Doesn't need whoopies or any type of suspension...just the sewn hammock itself.

    If you've gone one you can part with for a reasonable price, pm me.

    Thanks!

    A single layer with a Knotty Mod will hold a pad just fine. Have used one in my 11' BIAS and in a couple of DIY hammocks that I have made. No big deal to sew another layer on to a DIY if you really want the additional weight.

    I have something...

    ...you might be interested in. DL polyester (I think from WW) Only 10' long though. Gathered end. Really strong hammock. Color light grey. PM if interested.
    Gentle raindrops and mighty oceans...neither can exist without the other.
    Time heals all wounds...but it usually leaves a pretty big scar.

    No, mines a single layer.

    But I'm about to order polester material to make one, 126" x 60". Should be lighter than the Taffeta ones. I can make one for you also if you like. Gathered end with any side "Pull" you like (mine are 4" like a Speer). Either a webbing strap suspension or a simple line loop tie off, both use a sheet bend to tie the ends. My seamstress (Mrs. Millergear) needs some compensation so $55 w/suspention, $45 w/o. Includes shipping.

    Still need to determine where to sew the 2 layers together to for the pocket(s). Appreciate some help with that!

    PM if you are interested.

    My problem isn't that it won't hold a pad, but rather every time I move, the pad shifts if I don't have a layer between me and the pad.

    Levitation helps. Takes a long time to learn, but I'm old.
    I think the Knotty Mod may work for me because I'm also not very big at 5'9" and less than 150#. When I lie down in the 11 footer, I tend to create a small pocket that I drop into. The pad did not work for me in smaller hammocks. I believe you are a tad larger than I am.

    I made an 11 footer double layer out of 1.9 ripstop. It's my loaner and the one that I hope to lure my husband into hammock camping with me. If I make it to Rev's frozen butt hang you can take a look. I'm wanting to get either a DL BIA WW or a WL Lite Owl.
    Keep movin', keep believing and enjoy the journey!

    If I don't have one by then, that'd be great! I hope you make it to the FBH regardless.

    I've realized that the ENO DoubleNest I started with is good, but at 6'4" a longer hammock is the way to go. I got my brother a tablecloth hammock for Christmas and I've fallen in love with it, so it's time for me to get something comparable.
