Bark of the hammock tree was used to weave these hammocks. Cotton was next to be used to weave these hammocks because bark of hammock tree was not comfortable enough. Since cotton hammocks was not weatherproof, so, need to introduce some other fabric was very much there. Hammocks made of canvas cloth were introduced by Europeans which were basically designed for navy. But, these narrow and wood staved hammocks were not too comfortable which gave rise to modern day hammocks.
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.
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.
A hammock stand is made of wood or metals like stainless steel or aluminum. When purchasing a hammock stand, make sure it is strong enough to support your weight. Also, it should be of the correct type. Hammocks with spread bars need a different type of hammock stand than hammocks without bars. Make sure the stand you purchase meets your requirements.
