I am an artist that works with some textiles, one of the big factors
with certain fabrics is washing it in the wrong soap, or in heavily
chlorinated water. A silk hammock , or even heavy jeans can be eaten
by chlorine. Probably a hammock needs less washing than clothing.
ALso the weave and quality of the fabric can cause failure.
I would stick with fabric other people have used from a known
supplier using the same weave. Hang low and keep critters away.
