The main differences found in cord types are that cotton is softer and nylon is more durable. A nylon hammock will have a firmer feel, but will weather the elements better if left exposed outside to the elements. Cotton hammocks will stretch more and are usually considered the more comfortable option, but they require more care and protection from the elements to ensure longevity.
Breath-ability. Although this is an appealing characteristic for fabrics, in my view it is outweighed in this case by the fact that considerable amounts of pesticides and fertilizers are used to grow cotton. Ironically, these chemicals are of no use in warding off the insects attracted to some hammocks (see below), but their dust remains in cotton rope and presumably in heavy cotton fabrics.
A very important part of the hammock is the weave it is created in. Many hammocks are flat canvas type hammocks that don't do as good a job as conforming to your body shape like the hand-woven Mexican open weave type. With the open weave generally the smaller the gaps the great comfort and support this gives, yet still allows air to circulate through and around you while resting in your hammock. So hammocks often seen as the mass produced varieties will have large open weaves in rope type cord. These do not support you well and dissuade you from wanting to spend much time in your hammock. Look for the authentic Mexican hand-woven corded hammocks as these provide a very high level of comfort, strength and support.
Hammocks are ideal for spending a lazy day at home. These luxurious beds are comfortable and affordable for almost anyone. The best thing about hammocks is that you don't need much space to use one. If you have enough space to put up two sturdy posts in your backyard, you can hang a hammock right there and use it for a nap, or to unwind after a hard day's work.
