Bark of the hammock tree was used to weave these hammocks. Cotton was next to be used to weave these hammocks because bark of hammock tree was not comfortable enough. Since cotton hammocks was not weatherproof, so, need to introduce some other fabric was very much there. Hammocks made of canvas cloth were introduced by Europeans which were basically designed for navy. But, these narrow and wood staved hammocks were not too comfortable which gave rise to modern day hammocks.
Hammocks are usually made of either rope, or cloth. The rope hammocks are made of nylon or cotton ropes knitted together in the form of a large net. These are inexpensive and usually last for years if used properly. Rope hammocks also let air circulate around your back, and prevent excessive sweating. The only drawback is the fact that the ropes may dig into your skin. However, this can be avoided simply by spreading a thin sheet of cloth on the hammock. Cloth hammocks are made of thick sheets of absorbent cotton. These are even more comfortable than rope hammocks. There are no ropes that dig into your skin, and the fabric will wrap around your body, providing superior comfort. These do not allow circulation of much air around your back due to the thickness of the material, but the cotton fabric will absorb most of the perspiration, keeping you cool on a hot summer day.
