Why parachute silk material for a hammock?
There are several advantageous to using parachute silk, first it is extremely lightweight making it ideal for the hiking or outdoor adventurous type.
Another reason is because it is durable, after all sky divers trust this material with their lives, and just because it is thin and feather light doesn’t mean it is weak.
It is the ideal hammock for a backpack because it will fold down to a very small footprint making it the perfect camping accessory for a trek in the woods.
An additional benefit of a parachute silk hammock is if by chance it does get wet it will dry out very quickly unlike other cotton hammocks that could be water logged for some time.
