Many people believe cotton is the best material for rope and fabric hammocks because it is perceived to be comfortable, durable, breathable and attractive. Actually, given the man-made materials now available for hammocks and hammock chairs, cotton is a poor choice.
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.
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.
Wooden hammock stands Wooden hammock stands offer the most durable, and elegant solution, however, this can also be reflected in their price. The wood comes in various types, Cypress is often used in high quality stands, but whichever type of wood you buy, these stands stand out as the classic choice of hammock stand. The fantasy image of a hammock is rarely complete without the strong natural wood which supports it, whether that be a tree or a stand. Wood hammock stands are designed for hammocks both with and without spreader bars, and add a beautiful organic framework for relaxation.
