      yep, i understand that nylon has more strech than polyster, but i don`t think it has enough to resove the potential problems of stressing the fabric of the hammock body when sewing across (side to side) to attach a smaller area of insulation, like the warm hammock.
      what i had in mind was a very small true elastic cord. but that wouldn`t work in a sewing mach because a sewing machine works on the principal of keeping the thread pulled taught, at a proper tention. and the elastic cord would really through a wrench in that system.
      but if a person was willing to sew that portion (across) by hand W/ elastic cord, that mite help. BUT... even the small elastic cord i have in mind (i don`t have the package to see the size, but its probably at least two times the thickness of a heavy thread) would require a larger needle that would in turn, make a larger hole each pass. i don`t know if that would also comprimise the fabrics strengh or not.
      just a thought ...tim

      They can. I use nylon thread on my hammocks and never have a problem
      with differential stretch.
