Traditional, American Style hammocks are the perfect choice for people
who like hammocks with spreader bars and a classic look and feel.
Traditional hammocks are handmade with thick cotton cord and offer
maximum comfort and beauty. This style of hammock is ideal for a garden
American style hammocks are usually made of cotton or a polypropylene
mix and offer a classic look and feel. They can be hung between two
trees or placed on a variety of different stands, and, while they will
not conform to your body because of the thick rope, they are very
comfortable. They are also generally more durable than other types of
hammocks. When choosing a rope hammock, remember that the smaller the
space between the ropes, the more comfortable it will be.
Single Size hammock beds generally measure somewhere from 4 feet wide
x 7 feet long and have weight capacities of 500 pounds, while extra
large size hammock beds can measure 5 feet wide x 7 feet long and have
weight capacities of 600 pounds. The double hammocks are usually a lot
larger than the single size hammocks.
The best American style hammocks are color-fast, highly resistant to
rot and mildew, and treated with UV protectant. The rope often has 8
strands braided around centre core, making it more durable than a
twisted rope. Should one strand get nicked or cut, the integrity of
the braid will not be compromised.
