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.
There are lots of countries like Guatemala, Mexico, El Salvador, Brazil and Nicaragua, where hammocks have always been used as an essential object. In these countries, hammocks have been used for more than 900 years which is truly fascinating. However, it is thought that hammocks were actually introduced by Mayan Indians in Central America about 1000 years ago.
Wooden hammock stands Wooden hammock stands offer the most durable, and elegant solution, however, this can also be reflected in their price. The wood comes in various types, Cypress is often used in high quality stands, but whichever type of wood you buy, these stands stand out as the classic choice of hammock stand. The fantasy image of a hammock is rarely complete without the strong natural wood which supports it, whether that be a tree or a stand. Wood hammock stands are designed for hammocks both with and without spreader bars, and add a beautiful organic framework for relaxation.
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.
