Hammock Netting ...

Question for all you knot heads ..

I want to make or purchase some heavy duty netting for use in a hammock and I would like to know more about what the best material to use is and which knots to use in its construction. I have been reading a bit about it and it looks like the preferred knot for making fishing nets is a sheet bend, or a double sheet bend, and I think I can figure that part out, but what is the best cordage to use ? I would want to end up with a net that is strong and doesn't stretch too much or not at all, and something that can stand up to years of heavy use, maybe nylon ?

What are you pretending not to know ?
