That's not a kissing bug with a deadly heart disease, is it?

Never heard of that. Should I have been alarmed? He was on my shoulder for a bit before my hat.

Nah, kissing bugs are from South America - though they have some in the USA as well, but they usually (usually) don't carry Chagas disease.

Well since it was our first date, we didn't do any kissing.

Is the homepage sling an artifact? Or a replica?

It's that exact sling. An artifact. It's amazing in the fact that it is an organic artifact that survived from pre-1500 AD.

Nice one Dan. I like to use natural fibers but I have made a few Chamorro slings with synthetics and gutted 550 cord.



Now you have to post pictures of those slings.   Smiley



Agreed..  Let's see em Pikaru!


Chamorro Sling made from gutted 550 cord and small diameter equipment cord. New brown and black with tan; five strand flat to four strand round braid for the release.

Looks good!
Have you just whipped the cords for the pouch to the cords from the braid? Or have you somehow disassembled the cords and then "spliced" the pouch cords in?

There is no whipping used on this sling. The black cord at the pouch is woven between the strands of the pouch. I deconstructed the cord and spliced them. The sling works without the extra weaving at the pouch and I've been considering removing or greatly reducing it.

Could you show how you did the splice? I'm intrigued how you did it!

I just made a Chamorro from all natural raw materials.  Smiley

The finger loop didn't turn out how I'd like so I need to mod it. Pics soon.  Smiley
