I come up with 0.145oz/yd (1/2" widths)
So if we assume it will be used on a full length Speer hammock for
whatever reason, it would add 0.479oz to the overall weight.
Anyone know of a way to calculate thread weight? Anyone care ;)
On and 11ft. tarp, using this as the center seam bonding agent, it
would add 0.483 to the wieght.
Interesting info. Seems worth trying at least.
