My order of 4 yards of MTN 1.3 wide arrived in a timely manner. This is a light, slick fabric with just the right amount of stretch to be comfortable for my 155 pounds. To sew it, I used a teflon foot on the Singer Heavy Duty and that made the job much, much easier.
The finished product was exactly what I was aiming for. I wanted a hammock just a smidge under 11 feet, and it came out 10 feet 10 inches on the dot, which was perfect. Generous hemming gave me a width of 62.75 inches, within a quarter inch of the 63 I was aiming for. More skilled sewers could certainly use a smaller hem and make a wider hammock with this fabric if needed.
The finished product weighs exactly 10 ounces, including the two amsteel end loops and the zingit ridgeline. I'll make a stuff sack out of the left over material, so I expect the weight with stuff sack will be a few tenths over 10 ounces, which is outstanding for such a wide fabric.
I'll post photos over on my Instagram page: https://www.instagram.com/drew_boswell_writes/
The title says it all.
I have a hammock in the 1.2mtn and I weigh 220. I made a hammock out of this 1.3mtn and it feels more like the 1.7mtn than the 1.2mtn. Very strong feeling and almost no sag or stretch. Very nice flat lay. I'd buy it again, seems to be the perfect hammock fabric for what I like.
Nice product to work with. I used this for a hammock project it is very light but yet seems very durable. Will be using again in the future on other projects.
RSBTR for another great product.
Purchased on the first day of release! Made a hammock for my brother as I wanted to make him something unique. The new material was very easy to sew (very stable in all directions/planes). Not too stiff, but not as "buttery" as HyperD. I do appreciate the weight savings and the large format (my 6' 3" brother will too).
