How to lay down in a Hammock?

What is the correct way to lay down in a Hammock?

What is The Correct Way to Lay in a Hammock

I have found that many people are not maximizing the use of their new hammocks as they lay down on the wrong way: I found the perfect diagram  at the Huffington Post, which clearly demonstrate what we mean:

 

This is the ideal way to lay down in a hammock. It could be any style of Hammock: Solid Materials, like our Ecuadorean Hammocks or Mexican Hammocks. Laying down diagonally will give you a better stability as you will be spreading your weight throughout the hammock, allowing it to shape in a naturally way to your back. This way will also keep the hammock open, preventing it to cocoon you.

When people come to the shop: their first reaction when trying a hammock is: to jump in, (like the image on top that says NO): Up and Down, this makes the hammock look like a banana; we then show them what is the ideal way to lay down in a Hammock (like the image which say: YES) and people is always pleasently surprised to see how comfortable this becomes.

So now you know: next time you see a hammock: Jump on it and lay down in a diagonally way: Just like the Mayans in Mexico still sleep on their hammocks.

Camping Hammocks - Hammock Heaven

Camping Hammocks

This time of the year, with holidays fast approaching it is a great time to buy a hammock for a camping trip. Adding a hammock to your camping gear will give you great extra options for both relaxing and sleeping.

Our Mexican hammocks and Ecuadorean hammocks are both ideal for camping and we also have a range of parachute nylon hammocks that are lightweight and fold up very small in their own carry bags, really purpose designed for camping. For added comfort why not add one of our hammock mosquito nets to you camping equipment. These mosquito nets are a tube with a drawstring on each end and a zipper entrance so you are completely enclosed and safe from mossies, flies and other bugs. The fine open mesh also means complete breathability so you will still be nice and cool, these mossie nets are a must if you intend to sleep in your hammock.

Mexican Hammocks - Hammock Shop

Where to install a hammock?

If you are in the fortunate position to have lots of trees, gazebo poles or other options and don’t need one of our hammock frames or a hammock chair stand, you might be wondering where to hang your hammock?

We have a lot of clients come into the Hammock Heaven shop asking this question and I always give a similar answer..... Put up hammock hooks in as many positions as possible. With some imagination and the right hardware you can put straps around trees and posts, hang hooks from gazebos, put dyna bolts into house and garage brick walls, put coach bolts through exposed beams and more. With lots of hooks you will be able to easily move you hammock from one spot to another, taking advantage of sunshine on cooler days and shade on hot summer days. If the hooks are already there, moving you Mexican hammock will only take moments and you are much more likely to get more use and enjoyment from your hammock.

The main thing to avoid is tying a rope directly through the hammock eye and onto a fixing point, whatever type of knot you use, it will get very tight and moving or removing your hammock will be more difficult, making it less likely you will get the most out of your hammock and also less likely you will store your beautiful handmade hammock when not in use. All our hammocks whether cotton or nylon and whether from Mexico or Ecuador are very high quality, but anything you leave outside in weather extremes indefinitely will suffer ill effects from the weather. Having easy to use koos means ou will be more likely to care for you hammock and also get the most out of it.

For any questions about hammock installation options please call Hammock Heaven

Hammock chair stands - Stands for egg chairs - stands for pod chairs

Hammock Chair Stands

Worth its own blog due to the three different models of hammock chair stands or frames that we stock at Hammock Heaven.

All the models we have are obviously suitable for our hand woven Mexican hammock chairs and two of the models are suitable for most styles of pod chairs, egg chairs, air chairs and the various other types of hanging chairs available in shops.

The three types and their main features are;

  1. The A frame stand. The most economical of the stands and height adjustable from the frame. This frame is quite stable with a fairly large footprint and suitable for all hammock chairs and we have tested this frame with models of Air Chairs. Due to it’s shape not suitable for egg and pod chairs.
  2. The “C-X” frame. Slightly more expensive that the “C” frame and suitable for any type of pod, egg, air or other chair we have ever come across. The main differing feature of this model is that the base is much narrower and therefore the stand can fit into considerably smaller spaces. Great for space restricted unit balconies and fits well into corners.

Complete dimensions and specifications on all the hammock chair models can be found at www.hammockheaven.com.au and for any questions on hammock chair frames and stands please don’t hesitate to call the shop or drop into our shop in Noosa.

If you already have a hanging chair feel free to bring it into the store to find the ideal stand for it.

Our hand-woven hammocks are available in all sorts of colour options, single colours if you don’t want to give a present that is too crazy, then there are beautiful two tone colour options and then traditional multi coloured that Mexico is really famous for.

So weather you give that lucky fella a single, double, king, jumbo or deluxe Mexican hammock, or you choose a beautiful South American hammock from the great range of Ecuadorian hammocks we have in stock your gift is sure to please.

The hardest part can be choosing the colour, rest assured that we have a LOT to choose from with the biggest hammock shop in Australia and if you are worried you may get the choice wrong we always happily let your present receiver come in and swap their hammock over.
