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.
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.
There are several styles to pick from for a quilted hammock such as a Malibu Convertible which holds two people and is reversible; the Hatteras Large Quilted Hammock with the Spring Bay Stripes, there is the Hatteras Large Quilted Hammock Soft Weave and several other quilted styles to look at. If you like the Cotton Hammock, this is one of the traditional hammocks that criss-crosses and comes in styles such as the Maui Double Cotton Twist Rope, Original Pawleys Island Large Cotton Rope, The Stowaway Luxurious Cotton Rope Hammock and several other cotton styles. Another popular hammock style is the Camping Hammocks. The Camping Hammocks come in styles such as Marina Double Portable, Hammaka Parachute Nylon Silk Portable and several other styles.
A rope hammock is the first thing most people think of, when picturing a hammock. Rope hammocks offer the most traditional look. They are usually made from cotton or polyester rope. They are very durable, don't require much maintenance and cost less than other types. A big advantage of a rope hammock is that it "breathes", letting you get the most benefit from breezes on a hot day. Rope hammocks are reasonably comfortable, but the rope might leave impressions on your skin. Hammocks with smaller spaces between the ropes are more comfortable.
