Hammock Fabrics

← All Topics

The fabric used in the hammock body plays an important role in how the hammock lays. A very lightweight fabric will have more stretch and give you a “springy” feeling. It will also allow your body to sink further down into the hammock and tend to close up around you. A heavier fabric will not stretch quite as much and feel firmer under you. Your body will be held slightly higher and the fabric won’t tend to close in around you quite as much, giving you a flatter lay. The disadvantage in heavier fabrics obviously, is final weight and pack size of your hammock.

We offer many different weights, types and colors of fabric.
