Undoubtedly, there are lots of advantages of using hammocks like you can keep your back in comfortable position, keep insects away from you and many more. But, do you really know something about the history of your comfy hammock? Probably not and that's the reason why it is worth taking a look at it.
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.
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.
Comfort. After only a few years of normal use, the twisted cotton cord used to make rope hammocks and hammock chairs, hardens and looses flexibility. Once wet, cotton fabric hammocks can take more than a day to dry.
