Hammock FAQ
People getting ready to buy a hammock always have questions. Often they will visit a hammock store, check out everything they went to see, and then the minute they get home, they remember several things they forgot to ask. If this sounds like you, you are definitely not alone. Following are some of the frequently asked questions that can be overlooked.

Can hammocks withstand harsher weather conditions such as rain and snow? - Some hammocks hold up better outdoors than other hammocks do. For one thing, any hammock made from natural fiber will start to wear over time. For this reason, a hammock made from nylon will hold up better than a hammock constructed of cotton. Regardless of what material you choose, it is always recommended that the hammock be taken down during the harsher months. Even during the summer when rain is in the forecast for several days in a row, it would be wise to store it by hanging in a shed or in the garage. You might also want to consider colorfast colors that will last longer and not fade while in the sun.

Do hammocks create danger for children? - Most hammock companies will recommend that children six and under be with an adult whenever using the hammock and all children should be carefully monitored. Since hammocks are constructed with rope, small children should never be left alone. If your children are older than six it might be a good idea to hang the hammock closer to the ground so they do not fall when trying to climbing in or out of the hammock. Be sure to read all instructions before you hang your hammock and go over the rules with the children so they understand the importance of safety.

Is there a difference between a nylon and cotton hammock? - While both offer extreme comfort, hammocks made from cotton will stretch more and conforms better to the body. Because of this extra stretch, the cotton hammock tends to be a little more comfortable. On the other hand, a nylon hammock provides excellent durability, lasts longer, and is stronger than a cotton hammock. The best option is to consider the climate in your area, and if possible, visit a hammock store where you live and try them both out.

Are hammocks weaved any certain way? - The most comfortable hammocks have a triple weave that is the tightest style available. This weave is an excellent choice for ultimate comfort and durability. You will also find a single or double weave, which is a little less tight and has larger spaces, but there is no need to worry. Not only will you be comfortable in your new hammock, but safe!
