    At .66 ounce per square yard? You'd have to have a death wish to make a hammock out of that stuff. However, if somebody has tried it, I'm sure they used 1.75 mm Zing-It for their whoopie slings!

    A simple no comment would have sufficed...but then again there's always got to be a wiseass in every crowd.

    Working with that fabric everyday I can tell you it would not be suitable or SAFE for a hammock.
