The SJ design comprises 450 individual strands of yarn, each 3.75m long, equating to a total of 1.8KM of yarn. It takes a Lahu weaver 6-7 days to complete 105 turns on each of the 450 strands resulting in approximately 45,000 loops per hammock.
The greater the number of loops in a woven fabric is a direct indication of the quality.
