CORDS: Materials for
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.
HAMMOCK 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.

NETTING SHUTTLES
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.
Netted Hammock Instructions.
How to Load Netting Shuttles.

Pick-up sticks (with the weaving supplies) make fine gauge sticks, to keep the mesh size constant as you net.
