I've been trying to get some 1.9oz silnylon to build myself a hammock.
Does anyone have any other sources for nylon type fabrics around the Vancouver area? (I already tried a search on the forum here, no luck)
I was gonna order it from seattlefabrics.com but once I included the price of shipping and US/CAD exchange rate... Yikes.
These are the stores I've tried here in Vancouver:
Clothworks of Vancouver - Only had 'coated nylon' and didn't know what silicon nylon or PU nylon was.
Textile Clearance House (Fraser and 41st) - No nylon at all.
Walmart - tried a few but had no fabric departments.
Fabricland - Confirmed 2 stores have ripstop via phone. Neither could tell me a firm price (around $10-$14). Didn't know if it was waterproof or not or what the weight was.
Outdoor Innovations (3293 Main Street) - Great store! $10/Meter for non-waterproof ripstop, $20/M for waterproof. They have an amazing selection of outdoor type fabrics. Very friendly staff.
