    Welcome to the forum. Check out Marty at Wilderness Logics. He just made me a custom hammock, top quit and under quilt. They do great work. I have a winter top quilt order in currently. https://www.wildernesslogics.com/LITE-OWL-LITE-OWL.htm Marty does top notch work. I have been to his shop they are the real deal.

    Hi Kraig. In order to help you we need to know your weight and maybe height in order to help choose a fabric. Your weigh really makes a difference on the material of choice. What I did was to contact Jared at SLD and give him both my wife's and mine info (yep she had something to say about that lol) and he was able to give me a few options based upon the desired or expected stretch characteristics of the different fabrics. He also suggested the 11' length for us. Also, if your going for a double hammock and want to save weight then that will affect your decision. I tried to locate the email that I had from Jared about finished width's on his regular and wide Hexon materials but can't find it. I suggest that you give Jared a shout and simply ask him what might be your best options and about the finished width.

    I know you're in the UK, but most US manufacturers will ship to you.

    Nice to have a chat with you here dude. It's okey if you are from UK. This isn't a big matter. Because if you order online like Amazon or eBay then you'll get your products in your hand. They will deliver it. Thanks!

    If you don’t want to upgrade AVOID amazon. Contact the cottage vendors and you’ll find a great group of folks who will be happy to help you out.
