Polyester Microfiber

Post by Hleror »

Tablecloths into hammocks got me to thinking. Could there be a similar approach in the search for the elusive polyester microfiber fabric? TeeDee recommended polyester microfiber like here - https://comfortersetreviews.com as an ideal bridge hammock body fabric for comfort and low stretch in the Bridge Design Principles post.

Sheets are described as 75 GSM (which I assume is grams/square meters), which is converted to 2.21 ounces/square yard. The queen flat sheet will give 2 pieces at 88" long x 51" wide (enough for 2 hammock body bridges) and if my math is right, will come to $2.86/linear yard @ 51" wide. I found them in other stores at lower prices, but no weight is specified.

Do you think they will be suitable for hammocks? Has anybody tried them before?

Are you thinking of a low cost solution vs an Eno hammock?
