The VWeave design comprises 600 individual strands of yarn, each 4m long, equating to a total of 2.4KM of yarn. It takes a Lahu weaver 14 days to complete 51 turns on each of the 600 strands (each loop makes two crossings) resulting in approximately 90,000 loops per hammock.
The greater the number of loops in a woven fabric is a direct indication of the quality.
