The TJ design comprises 350 individual strands of yarn, each 3.75m long, equating to a total of 1.3KM of yarn. It takes a Lahu weaver 4 days to complete 95 turns on each of the 350 strands resulting in approximately 35,000 loops per hammock.
The greater the number of loops in a woven fabric is a direct indication of the quality.
