    There’s a document floating around out there (probably a link to it on here somewhere) that shows you how to make your own, if you’re so inclined. It lists a variety of styles and provides measurements and patterns. If memory serves, there may also be instructions for a no-sew hammock.

    So, would this be something many people would be interested in? I am thinking about getting back into sewing them, and am curious about the potential market. I used to make and sell hammocks on this forum 9+ years ago.

    I make hammocks in Canada (proceeds go toward vet ills of rescues,
    Petunia makes hammocks in the USA
    and I have contact info for someone who makes hammocks in BC Canada

    But with the cost of shipping so high re international orders, I would suggest that you ask owners community in
    New Zealand and Australia.

    I use old fleece sheets for mine. Cut out a large enough square, make slits in each corner and hang in the cage. You can make than as droopy as they wish. Franklin likes a droopier hammock, whereas Hamish prefers his to be firmer. Easy to disassemble and wash.

    There are hammock making tutorials on youtube
    and no sew hammock tutorials on youtube for those who can not sew or do not have a sewing machine
    if you want to make your own hammocks

    Hi Lawless! I love your Shakespearean rattie names! Look on Etsy.com. There are tons of rat hammock sellers, many in the UK, but I'm not sure about your neck of the woods. Either way, there's likely someone who will ship to you, and there are certain to be Halloween themed things too.
