After careful consideration, you have finally decided to buy a hammock. You visited a friend who had one, tried it out, and now you are hooked. You know that hammocks are made from various types of materials and now you need to determine how to choose the type of material that is best. To help you make the right decision, consider the following information. Mayan Hammocks made from cotton are by far the softest and most comfortable hammocks available. Since cotton stretches with the curves of the body, it envelopes the form of the body and provides you with the ultimate experience. You will also find there to be different choices for cotton. If you plan to use the hammock outside under the shelter of a deck, patio, or trees, or if you plan to sleep on the hammock indoors, a standard cotton hammock would be a good choice. However, if the hammock will be used only for outdoor use in harsher elements, you should go with the extra weight cotton that is called Deluxe Cotton, or even a hammock made from 100% nylon. Regardless of which cotton hammock you choose or the intended use, treat it with ScotchGard to help it last longer.
The cords of Mayan cotton hammocks are exceptionally soft and flexible, which is why they conform to the body so well. The difference between hammocks purchased from Mexico or other online businesses is that with Mayan, the quality of finishing work is extraordinary, completed by the weavers who produce only perfected work. The deluxe cotton hammocks are made using a heavier weight cotton cord. Just lying on the hammock will convince you of the added weight and support, which can be felt immediately. If you want to use your hammock outside but still want the ultimate comfort, then Deluxe Cotton is exactly what you need. Lux Cotton is the type of hammock material that comes in many different brilliant colors. The fibers are thin but amazingly stronger than that of the standard cotton. The reason the Lux Cotton is stronger is that the fibers from which it is spun are longer. These hammocks make great beds indoors since they make you feel as though you are floating on air. As you go to sleep at night, your entire body will be supported by thousands of thin, tiny strands.
When it comes to Mayan Hammocks made from 100% hammocks, you will find that overall, they are better for outdoor use. In addition to providing a firmer support, a nylon hammock is also a better choice for people that tend to lie flat on their back, whereas the cotton hammock provides a more natural support. Nylon also withstands outdoor elements much better than that of cotton. The materials used to make Mayan hammocks are only top quality. Each hammock is constructed with colorful, quality fibers, made by the highest qualified artisans. Each Mayan hammock is a masterpiece, which is why when not in use, or during harsh weather, the hammocks should be cleaned and packed away until the weather turns nice again.
Deluxe 100% nylon hammocks are top of the line for durability. If you live in a location that has high humidity or is by the ocean with both saltwater and salt air, this hammock will survive. The Deluxe Nylon hammock is firmer than the Deluxe Cotton but still comfortable. In fact, people that like to lounge on a hammock while boating, choose the Deluxe Nylon. You will also find this hammock in an Extra-Grande size and custom orders are always welcomed. Lux Nylon is also thinner than the normal nylon and more tightly wound. Just like with the Lux Cotton, you can choose from an abundance of vibrant colors, and amazing comfort.
Ciguena is cotton cordage that provides both strength and resilience. This particular cotton is spun the longest and finest combed cotton, producing a hard, shiny cord that is almost impossible to break. Generally, Mayan only makes the Ciguena hammocks on a special order basis they do keep a few in stock due to their popularity. Although constructed of cotton, these hammocks are just as strong, if not stronger than nylon.
