This isn't your grandmother's nylon.
This is comfortable stuff. Very nice on my tender skin...
- I made a large hammock from "high thread count nylon taffeta" that I
got on sale from OWF. I just sewed a casing with two or three rows of
stitching along each end of the large rectangle and ran spectra line
through the casing.
This hammock--big enough for two or even three--gets a lot of use in
certain wilderness spots on the beach here in Hawaii. It has
comfortably accomodated many happy naked backpackers. And that's been
true even during the day, when it can get pretty hot. Of course, I
try to put the hammock in the shade. The feel of the nylon on bare
skin is cool and comfortable.
I must admit that it never gets really hot here; 94F or so is the all-
time record, I think. And we usually enjoy tradewinds; it's
never "too hot" in the shade at the beach. But, still, I'll bet the
nylon works for you.
