WHAT ARE HAMMOCKS MADE OF?
The body of the best hammocks are hand-woven from 100% cotton.
HOW LONG WILL IT LAST?
Your hammock should last for many years. They should not be left outdoors for long periods of time.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE IN SIZE?
Standard hammocks sleep one. The matrimonial size will sleep two and seat as many you can fit into it (six+), and is ideal for indoor use.
HOW SHOULD IT BE HUNG?
It requires two rings mounted to walls or posts, two S-hooks, and two lengths of strong cord. You can purchase these items wherever hammocks are sold. Suspend the hammock to hang symmetrically, with both ends at the same height, using equal lengths of cord.
HOW DO YOU USE IT?
To enter the hammock, you back up to it, pull the far side well above your head then lie back, pull in your feet and position yourself comfortably. To get out, simply lower your feet to the ground and stand up.
IS IT WASHABLE?
Yes, grasp each end loop and stretch the hammock to its full length. Bind the end cords and body at about six-inch intervals to keep them from tangling. Gently hand wash in cold water with mild detergent. Rinse thoroughly, remove binding strings and hang it stretched to dry.
HOW DO YOU STORE IT?
One way is to grasp the end loops and twist each in opposite directions until the entire length is twisted tightly, then hold it above your head, and it will spin and wrap around itself like a skein of knitting yarn.
