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.
Conventional hammocks are attached on two ends to a trunk, a standee, or other objects that can be used to fix the hammock on. This structure allows the hammock to rock back and forth on both sides.
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.
A hammock swing resembles a hammock folded in half and hung up with a basket at the center of the hammock. It is great for lounging on a patio or indoors on a warm summer evening. Sturdy, comfortable, and cost-effective, hammock swings can provide you with years of faithful service with minimal maintenance. The more expensive versions of hammock swings have a foot-rest installed under those, and are often called 'air chairs'.
