Fabric hammocks can be quilted, or made of cotton or mesh. A well-made fabric hammock is durable and doesn't require much maintenance. Fabric hammocks are comfortable, and cotton fabric offers the most comfort. Unlike rope hammocks, there will be no prints on your body. Fabric hammocks are also very good for young children - their little fingers and toes won't get caught in the holes. On the downside, fabric doesn't provide much ventilation. So if you lie in a fabric hammock on a hot day, you might get a bit sticky. On the other hand, fabric is an ideal choice for cooler climates.
One more thing you should know is that rope and fabric hammocks can have spreader bars at the ends or be stave-less (traditional hammock without bars). You might think that spreader bars add comfort, but in fact it is the other way around - hammocks without the bars are more comfortable, because they wrap around your body better. If for appearance reasons you prefer hammocks with spreader bars, go for hammocks with 3 hanging points instead of just 2 - these have much less chance of tipping over.
The Travel Hammock Ultra Light Hammock: When you are going hiking or camping, it is advisable to carry as light luggage as possible. However that does not mean you have to sacrifice your comforts. This hammock is just right for lazing around, taking an afternoon nap, or even getting a good night's sleep. It is made of pure polyester taffeta. The weight is just 12 ounces and hence, you do not add weight while carrying your bag pack. This is the best option to keep from sleeping on the ground. If you are traveling in an area where it may not be safe to sleep on the ground, using this hammock can offer very good solution.
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.
