A rope hammock is the first thing most people think of, when picturing a hammock. Rope hammocks offer the most traditional look. They are usually made from cotton or polyester rope. They are very durable, don't require much maintenance and cost less than other types. A big advantage of a rope hammock is that it "breathes", letting you get the most benefit from breezes on a hot day. Rope hammocks are reasonably comfortable, but the rope might leave impressions on your skin. Hammocks with smaller spaces between the ropes are more comfortable.
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.
