Hi all,

Here in India it has been more than a little tricky to find Nylon fabric (especially ripstop). I can find Polyester Crepe. It felt like a hammock I ordered from an Indian surplus store but seemed a touch heavy. Unfortunately I have know idea what all these words mean.

Crepe
Taffeta
Etc.

Are there some of these things I should avoid for hammocks and quilts?

Fabric is everywhere, unfortunately it is focused on Sari making, not outdoors activities. Add on to that the language barrier and these questions get very difficult to get answered on the street.

Thanks for any help.

Josh
