    Fabric volume

    Hey everyone, Ive had indoor setups for a little while and Id love sleeping in it to be a more regular thing. When I move however, the noise of the fabric is loud enough to disturb the sleep of my spouse.

    What recommendations do you have for a quiet and comfortable hammock for sleeping indoors.

    I have not solved this problem after years.
    Because I'm difficult.

    Cotton mayan style hammocks do not make the noise. I toss and turn so I can't use a bridge hammock for long-term sleeping.


    The simple polyester tablecloth hammocks do not make noise either. For some reason I don't sleep well in that.

    However I saw Walmart has fleece hammocks for 35 bucks in sporting goods and I'm thinking of picking one of those up this weekend.

    I was at Hobby Lobby picking up more zippers yesterday. And I noticed that they have what looks like linen backed faux fur, you could have a nice soft fuzzy hammock.

    I got to say the thought of a fur hammock paired with some possum fur nipple warmers (etsy from Australia) will probably keep you comfortable through a cold night.

    A fleece hammock!!?? Sounds extra cozy, but in my home during the winter I'd imagine that would produce enough static electricity to power all of Chicago for a few days.

    I have a cotton Brazilian hammock- it is like gathered, but with clewed (?) ends (strings that connect to the hammock then gather) I don't know if I'm explaining it well. But the fabric is nice and doesn't make noise. It's heavy enough that with the thermostat at 71 (my mom lives with me-she's always cold) I don't need an under quilt.
