Rope Hammocks: types and overview of rope hammocks
Rope hammocks are usually made of cotton or a polypropylene mix and offer a classic look and feel. They can be hung between two trees or placed on a variety of different stands, and, while they will not conform to your body because of the thick rope, they are very comfortable. They are also generally more durable than other types of hammocks. When choosing a rope hammock, remember that the smaller the space between the ropes, the more comfortable it will be.

Single Size hammock beds generally measures 4 feet wide x 7 feet long and have weight capacities of 500 pounds. Single size hammocks are actually made for only one person. Extra large size hammocks can be made for one or more people. Extra large size hammock beds measures 5 feet wide x 7 feet long and have weight capacities of 600pounds.

The best rope hammocks are color-fast, highly resistant to rot and mildew, and treated with UV protectant. The rope often has 8 strands braided around centre core, making it more durable than a twisted rope. Should one strand get nicked or cut, the integrity of the braid will not be compromised. Remember the old adage "chords in a bundle are not easily broken." This is the idea behind the strength of the ropes for the hammocks.

Whatever hammock you choose, make sure that the hammock ropes are sturdy and that they will support the hammock. Also make sure the rope is well made and will survive the test of time. A sturdy rope will not collapse or sag over time either.
