Hammock & Net Making
COTTON BLEND NETTING TWINE
Comes in natural white only. Also see our Hawser Twine, with the yarns,
for a lighter weight similar cord.
A soft-twist, easily knotted cotton/polyester blend. Technically, these
are Welt Cords. Size #40 (130 yards/pound) is the best for hammocks, a
single person hammock takes two pounds, a double takes three. The #70
has 70 yards/pound. Natural white only.
Pick-up sticks (with the weaving supplies) make fine gauge sticks, to
keep the mesh size constant as you net.
We have Norwegian net shuttles, "made by fishermen for fishermen",
from a strong flexible plastic. These are much stouter than the
Delrin ones we once had. The dimensions given below are length and
width (visible in picture). The first four are chunky, from the
blunt end the profile is an "H". The largest is flatter,
the end profile is an "I". They are all smoothly finished
and agreeably substantial to hold.
