- Jun 10, 2003I wouldn't worry about it. I don't think there'd be much wear along
those end casings. Think how great a width of fabric there is to take
the load and how little friction there will be against the loop of
cord that runs through the casing. Nothing lasts forever, but I'd bet
that the hammock eventually fails somewhere else, such as the thread
used to sew the casings, the fabric in the body of the hammock, or
the edges of the sides.
Keep cotton out of the light as much as possible. Sunlight "rots" it.
