Tyvek "Home Wrap" is an ideal material for ground sheets. It is waterproof, and very abrasion and puncture resistant. Tyvek is stiff, and foldable like thick paper. It will not bunch up or slide around under you like other fabrics.
Fold up the edges and tape the corners to make yourself a bathtub floor for your tarp. Cut it to size using regular scissors to make a tent footprint. It does not fray and you do not need to hem or tape the edges.
This material is white on one side, with a blue and red Tyvek logo printed on the other side.

Recently sent back an arc haul pack for minor repair. I shipped the pack and received it back within 6 days, fully repaired. Incredible!! Great customer support!! John Gaston.
The Tyvek groundsheet arrived and actually is large enough to make into two groundsheets for my twin hammock setup for my wife and I. Low tech solution but a great and inexpensive option for a groundsheet under a tent (Don’t need one for my Duplex!) but under my hammocks, it is perfect.
