Down in Key West, Fla., there's a wonderful daily tradition of gathering to watch the sunset. And underneath the brilliant painted sky, happy observers clap and cheer as that great bright ball of daylight at last dips below the fiery horizon.
Nice, huh? But what those awestruck folks are witnessing is nothing compared to the outrageously sublime view of a seaside sunset when you're snuggled in with a special friend in this finely constructed DuraCord® Rope Hammock. The picturesque peacefulness of a vividly setting sun over open water is profoundly amplified when viewed through the haphazard frame of two sets of happy upturned feet, the quintessential symbol of profound relaxation.
To put it more simply: Bliss + a special someone's sundown kiss = Oh, yes!
Expressly designed to be weather-tough, DuraCord® is resistant to abrasion, rot, mold and mildew, yet is nonetheless as soft as cotton. Our three-ply DuraCord® rope is precision-wound to exceed even U.S. military specifications for strength, and because the rope is solution-dyed, it's also resistant to staining and fading — in fact, there's no more colorfast rope available today.
Hammock spreader bars are solid Southern white oak that's been hand-dipped multiple times in marine-quality varnish, to heighten the handsome hardwood's natural honey-gold hue. Hanging hardware, including chains, is galvanized steel, for a further boost in strength, and for heightened rust protection.
As weather-tough as a Pawleys Island® Hammock is, we still strongly suggest storing it in an enclosed dry place away from harsh chemicals and foraging wildlife when the hammock is going unused, or during lengthy stretches of bad weather, to help prolong the product's useful life.
Note: Don't worry if your own Original Pawleys Island® Rope Hammock at first seems a little shorter than its advertised length; your hammock will soon reach its full length through natural stretching from initial use.
