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.
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.
Hammocks are generally available in two main types of cord. Nylon and cotton, and often they are a combination of both. A nylon hammock is usually just that, 100% cotton. Whereas a cotton hammock will often be made so the body, the part you lie in is cotton and the arms/ends of the hammock where the weight is taken is made from nylon. This is done so to create a stronger more durable hammock while still giving you the added benefit of extra comfort from the cotton cord.
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.
