Is there a 12 step program for this ailment?

well, if you count all my hammocks, I do have more than 12......

My problem is I love my Dream Hammocks. I love the 3 Thunderbirds I have. I love my current Sparrow. With the new Robic fabric, i can now get a robust but lightweight Sparrow and I think I deserve it. :)

You do deserve it!
Seriously, thank you. We will try to get this out to you soon. I do have to say every time I work with this new 1.0oz ROBIC fabric, I like it even more.

For those folks building DIY hammocks.... This fabric takes a crease real nice and gives you a nice, clean rolled edge because it's just a little stiffer than the other lightweight options out there. If you've been frustrated by some of the other thin and floppy fabrics out there, you might consider giving this a try.

If anybody wants to see a little piece, I've got a few cut-offs in the bin. Shoot me an email with your address and I can mail you a sample. Sorry Scuba. Didn't mean to step on your thread. I'm just a little excited about the possibilities this new fabric offers.

I'm down to 255lbs now (yay for me!) and I've spent some nights in it. Plenty solid feeling. Some minor initial stretch of of course, but I detected no further stretch overnight. My initial guess is that it will comfortable for up to 275ish, but I wouldn't want to say any higher until more heavy folks get more time in the fabric.

It'll easily hold a lightweight preacher like yourself. :D
