Most hammocks are going to be installed outside (although putting up a hammock inside and watching TV from it is a pretty cool way to hang out inside you house) and in our range of hand- made Mexican hammocks you have the choice of cotton hammocks or nylon hammocks in all sizes.
Nylon hammocks are sometimes referred to as “Outdoor Hammocks” because nylon is a more weather resistant material than cotton. That said, our cotton hammocks are all handmade and do last well outside, and if you install your hammock in such a way that it is easy to put it up and take it down, then bringing it in and protecting it from bad weather will greatly ad to it’s lifespan no matter what it is made from.
When clients come into our store to lay down and try the over twenty sizes and styles of hammock we have available and ask about “outdoor hammocks” i always encourage them to lay down in a cotton hammock, then in a nylon hammock to feel the difference and then choose the hammock they find the most comfortable. Comfort really should be the first concern when choosing your hammock.
