Thinking of buying a hammock to relax and unwind? With so many hammocks on offer, it is difficult to decide which one is best. Discover the pros and cons of different types of hammocks and which hammock will be the best for you. Hammock retailers offer hundreds of different hammocks, but all of them can be divided into three groups according to material: fabric, rope and string hammocks. Each material has its pros and cons.
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.
Comfort. After only a few years of normal use, the twisted cotton cord used to make rope hammocks and hammock chairs, hardens and looses flexibility. Once wet, cotton fabric hammocks can take more than a day to dry.
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.
