Is your hammock really 16 sq yd? 1 sq yd is a piece 3 ft x 3 ft or 9 sq ft 16 sq yd is 144 sq ft So if your hammock body is 12 ft long, that would be 12 ft wide (single layer) or 6 ft wide (double layer). A typical (?) 11 x 5 ft hammock body would have 55 sq ft or about 6 sq yd. of fabric, which would be more in the 7 oz 'ballpark' for light nylon.
Dang my brain is cashed 0_o alright my hammock is 9ft 8in long buy 5ft wide single layer. I thought I had the 16 square yards right but I'm not good at math so probably messed something up. With these measurements can you help me? The Materal I bought today the finished hammock body weighs 10.2oz (measurements above) but the total weight of the hammock body fabric is 10.2oz for this nylon I bought today. #braindead ATM

Then I take the weight of my fabric (10.2oz) then divide that buy 5.37 which equalls 1.89 rounded up equalls 1.9 oz/sq yrd?=70D?
