Hammocks.com offers a variety of hammocks that help make outdoor living more comfortable, expanding a home into the outdoors. When equipped with furniture that enables relaxation, a patio, yard or deck can become more than a living space. It becomes a personal getaway that can melt stress away.
Hammocks.com sells various styles of hammocks online, including Mazatlan Mayan hammocks made with nylon or cotton, Nicaraguan hammocks, Brazilian hammocks and rope hammocks.
Hammocks.com store manager Erin VanBeek has searched worldwide for the best of all varieties of hammocks. VanBeek says, "We offer all types of hammocks and accessories that people can shop on their schedule. Obviously, the Internet lets them shop Hammocks.com 24 hours a day, but more importantly, we offer hammocks year round. And, we always have a wider selection of hammocks available than other stores or Websites."
Not all hammocks are created the same, and Hammocks.com helps identify the differences among the various types. There are two main designs of hammock - rope hammocks, which use support bars to give support at the head and feet, or Mayan-style hammocks, which cradle the body without support bars.
With rope hammocks, the ropes behind each support bar spread out the mattress, and encourage the hammock to swing. The spreader bars are usually finished with a weather-resistant coating, and depending on the width of the hammock, have anywhere between 12 and 16 holes for the rope. Good quality hammocks have spreader bars made of Oak or similar hardwood and better quality spreader bars will be "steam bent" to add a bit of curvature to enhance the swinging motion.
By contrast, most Mayan or Brazilian hammocks are designed to lie across the line of support. They cradle the body without the use of spreader bars. These hammocks support the body in near-zero gravity, which is why they are so comfortable.
According to Hammocks.com, the Mazatlan Mayan hammock is the most popular hammock. Mayan hammocks have an open, diamond-shaped weave made with either cotton or nylon strings. The open weave hammock has small spaces between the threads that widen at the pressure points. Often, they use many feet of thread, with the largest Mayan hammocks using more than a mile of string. The unique diamond-shaped weave can support up to 450 pounds, making this style popular with families, since two or more people can relax at once. Mazatlan Mayan hammocks also have a wide selection of colors.
Hammocks.com's other styles of hammocks include the Nicaraguan hammock, which is similar to the Mayan hammock, Brazilian hammocks, which have a completely closed weave, much like a blanket fabric hammock, and hammocks made of woven propylene for extra durability and water-resistance. Hammocks are also available in a variety of colors and prints and can be hung using hooks, tree straps or a stand.
