Some types of hammocks, such as Brazilian and Mayan hammocks, are hung directly from trees, posts, ceiling joists etc, however, other hammocks have to be attached to a hammock stand to make them useable. You can buy these types of hammocks in packages, and the stand and hammock will come together, ready to be set up. If you have found yourself in need of a stand, however, then you'll need to know if your hammock has "spreader bars" or not.
Hammocks can be of different types, including portable hammock, hammock chair, and hammock swing. Portable hammocks are made of a lightweight material that is easy to carry around. Still, the material is sturdy enough to hold up the weight of one person properly. Portable hammocks often ship with hammock posts, so you will not need to hunt for trees that are strong enough and at the right distance from one another when you are looking for a relaxing nap on the beach.
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.
The entire range of hammocks can be spilt into two categories regarding stands - those with, and those without spreader bars. The reason for this is that hammocks which don't have spreader bars must be hung much higher than those with spreader bars. Spreader bars are pieces of wood or metal attached horizontally at each end of the hammock bed to spread the fabric out.
