Cotton rope is the traditional material rope hammocks are made from. It is soft and provides a more natural look. Cotton is perfect for people who can take their hammock inside and out very easily, or who want the most comfortable hammock.

Polyester rope is weather resistant and will increase the longevity of your hammock. This bright white rope is a soft spun man-made fiber that is rot and mildew resistant. Polyester hammocks are recommended for tougher weather conditions or to leave outside all the time.

DuraCord rope provides the soft feel of cotton while maintaining superior outdoor durability and solution-dyed color-fastness. It is a fast drying and stain resistant fiber that prevents microbial and mildew growth.

The ideal distance for a large hammock is 15 feet or between 13-16 feet. The closer your anchor points are, the more curved your hammock will be. The ideal distance for any hammock is about two feet longer than the entire length of the hammock when measured from loop to loop.

The recommended height for the placement of the tree hook is between 4 and 5 feet. If your supports are closer than the above recommended length, the tree hooks should be raised.

Note: New hammocks might appear to be smaller but will stretch over time. It is normal for a hammock to be up to 1-2 feet shorter in the beginning.

Most hammocks, swings, and stands all have a weight capacity of 450 lbs. There are a few stands, however, that are capable of supporting up to 600 lbs.

The climate influences the life of your hammock tremendously. We have seen some hammocks last anywhere from 2 to 12 years. Under the same conditions, DuraCord will normally last longer than polyester and cotton. Proper care will also extend the life of your hammock. It is recommended that you bring your hammock inside in the winter and during extended periods of bad weather or non-usage. Keeping your hammock clean will also help its longevity. Read below for more information on this subject.

Yes, over time if left out in the elements. However, Polyester and DuraCord® are mildew resistant and only the dirt that accumulates on the rope or fabric will actually mildew. It is important to keep your hammock free of dirt and debris.

To clean a rope hammock, use a mild solution of soap and water in a bathtub, and then simply let air-dry. Try to keep the spreader bars out of the water as much as possible so that they do not get warped in the process. For polyester rope, you can also add a cap of bleach with the soap.

To clean quilted fabric hammocks, pillows, or swings, use a mild solution of soap and water and use a scrub brush. Hose off completely and then let air-dry. Spot remover solutions can also be used for problem areas.
