Breath-ability. Although this is an appealing characteristic for fabrics, in my view it is outweighed in this case by the fact that considerable amounts of pesticides and fertilizers are used to grow cotton. Ironically, these chemicals are of no use in warding off the insects attracted to some hammocks (see below), but their dust remains in cotton rope and presumably in heavy cotton fabrics.
The hammock was first used between 450-404 B.C. by one of Socrates students. Sometime in the 1700s, it is reported that Christopher Columbus brought the hammock back to Europe from the islands he had explored. In their early days, hammocks were constructed with tree bark sisal leaves. Today's hammocks are constructed with fabrics such as cotton, polyester, Nylon, Olefin and Nylon Silk. Along with the many fabrics used to make hammocks, the design styles have improved.
