Many people believe cotton is the best material for rope and fabric hammocks because it is perceived to be comfortable, durable, breathable and attractive. Actually, given the man-made materials now available for hammocks and hammock chairs, cotton is a poor choice.
One more thing you should know is that rope and fabric hammocks can have spreader bars at the ends or be stave-less (traditional hammock without bars). You might think that spreader bars add comfort, but in fact it is the other way around - hammocks without the bars are more comfortable, because they wrap around your body better. If for appearance reasons you prefer hammocks with spreader bars, go for hammocks with 3 hanging points instead of just 2 - these have much less chance of tipping over.
Generally speaking, if you have spreader bars, you need to buy a stand for that hammock, and if there are no spreader bars, then, if you think you would like a stand, you need to buy a stand designed specifically for a hammock without spreader bars. Hammocks which don't use spreader bars, like Mayan or Brazilian hammocks, hang much deeper than their spreader-bar counterparts, and as a result, if you have a hammock which doesn't have spreader bars, and you try to use it with a stand designed for hammocks with spreader bars, you'll most likely find yourself dipping so deep that you connect with the ground - not fun.
A hammock stand is made of wood or metals like stainless steel or aluminum. When purchasing a hammock stand, make sure it is strong enough to support your weight. Also, it should be of the correct type. Hammocks with spread bars need a different type of hammock stand than hammocks without bars. Make sure the stand you purchase meets your requirements.
