    Smile Would this fabric work for a hammock?

    I am thinking of buying about 3.5 yards of fabric like this... Would it work for a DIY hammock? What are some good fabrics that are available in a variety of colors, looks good, and is comfortable for indoor use? Thanks!!

    DIYGearSupply is a goood place to start. A lot of people are also buying large table clothe (Tablecloth factory or some such thing) and using those.

    I've used some polyester taselight in ACU digital camo from wmt. Not too heavy duty, but pretty stout. Did one hammock and was working on a sock with taselight. It's cheap - $1.97/yd in 60" width.
