8439[Hammock Camping] Re: follow-up on catenary cut hammock body
- Mar 2, 2005Right before you whip (or tie, or sheet bend), if you pull the edges
of the material about 2 or 3 inches on each end, then the fabric at
the edge is shorter than the fabric in the middle, which cuts down on
floppy edges. Making sense?
