How to Choose the Right Hammock
With so many hammocks to choose from, it can be difficult to make a choice. There are so many factors to consider before making a purchase: material, size, weight, cost, color— the list goes on. This new era is all about making good vibes.
In this article, we'll explore some different types of hammocks so you can find the one that best suits your needs and your style.
While hammocks are available to buy in a variety of sizes and fabrics, let us explore the different options:
If you want a hammock for that perfect “me time,” then a single hammock is the way to go. Just because it’s called "single" doesn’t mean that it’s small in size. It has plenty of room for one person to spread out and get comfortable.
Some of you might use a hammock to take a break with your significant other or friend, getting caught up on the day’s events or taking a snooze in the shade. A double hammock will give you that extra space and stability — making it easier for you to relax.
If you love the outdoors and travel often, a hammock is your perfect companion. It’s light, small, and very portable — perfect for rougher terrain. Hang it with the two-tree technique, and all you need is a little rope, which is especially designed for traveling.
Using a travel hammock when going on a vacation can make for an amazing experience. Whether you’re exploring the nature or sleeping under the stars in an exotic destination, it makes you feel like you’re a part of nature. And the best part is, you don’t need to carry a big old tent around with you!
And you can also get nets to keep pesky creepy-crawlies out. As long as you find two sturdy fixing points (trees work great or any posts), you should be good to go.
There are a number of different materials used to make hammocks. The most popular material we've chosen is cotton because it's very comfortable. A lot of our hammocks come with a padded bottom, which helps with the comfort factor. We also sell hammocks made from 100% recycled cotton, which are eco-friendly and animal-friendly. Some garden hammocks are made with a material that protects against the elements, which can be reassuring if you want to leave your hammock outdoors in the rain or snow.
The travel hammock range is made from parachute silk because they're ultra-lightweight, water resistant, pack down really small, and quick drying. Camping hammocks are also comfortable to sleep in.
Getting into and out of a hammock
It might sound patronizing, but there are a few important things to consider when you first get into your hammock. First, sit down on the hammock. Next, lower yourself back onto the fabric and bring your legs in. Ideally you should be lying diagonally with your back straight. This will prevent you from being wrapped up in a massive amount of fabric. If it doesn’t feel right, then the hammock might be set up too high or too low or the two points tying off the hammock might be close together or far apart. To get off the hammock, simply shift your weight and make sure that your feet touch the ground before you stand up.
Sleeping in a hammock
We all know how great sleeping in a hammock is, but many wonder if it’s actually harming themselves. Sleeping in a hammock overnight can actually be good for your neck, back, and even your insomnia. If you wake up feeling groggy, there are some things you can do to improve the experience. For example, put a soft rug or carpet under you while sleeping. We already know that children sleeping in hammocks can be tricky, so make sure they have something soft under them in case they need to get up at night.
Alright! If you've read the article, you should now know how to find the right hammock for you.
