Your own back yard may not be the quietest spot around. Kids yelling. Dogs barking. Neighbors running mowers. So how do you escape from the constant stirrings of outdoor life when all that life consistently insists on going full-tilt all around you?
If only you could slip off for a time into your very own secluded meadow, a serene patch of unhurried space…
Our Large Meadow DURACORD® Rope Hammock can bring you at least partway there, with a powerful taste of that peaceful, easy feeling right in your own sometimes-bustling back yard! Settle in, and the world around you is guaranteed to seem to start to settle down. So amid all that noisy life just beyond those cradling hand-woven hammock ropes, for the first time, you notice the sweet sound of songbirds, too. You'll definitely be visiting your own backyard meadow again soon, won't you?
Our own proprietary solution-dyed synthetic blend of rope, DURACORD®, blends the softness of cotton with the durability of polyester. Made in the Carolinas, this combination yields a rope that has excellent color steadfastness and superior feel. DURACORD® is dyed when spun, producing a rope that is colored all the way through. Like a carrot when sliced open, DURACORD® has the same color on both the inside and the outside. Our DURACORD® rope is the densest rope on the hammock market at 85 ft./lb., this results in less stretching and increased support when relaxing in your hammock.
Oak Spreader Bar
A wood that is naturally resistant to both rot and insect infestation, and has oils that repel water, Oak blends both exceptional strength and a handsome appearance. Our Oak spreader bars are repeatedly hand-dipped in honey-gold marine-grade varnish allowing a longer outdoor life and exceptional good looks. Our Oak spreader bars are a full 1 inch thick, compared to most other competitor’s spreader bars that measure at ⅞ inch. A thicker spreader bar allows more holes for rope, allowing the hammock bed to sit firmly on the hammock. Our spreader bars also feature countersink drilled holes. Countersink drilling is a technique that uses a trumpet drill bit that produces a hole with no hard angles, allowing the rope to pass through without any sharp edges to wear the rope.
All our Rope Hammocks are Handwoven by highly trained weavers that have mastered the technique of the Double-Latch Weave. This technique is best described when individual ropes pull against each other to produce a lattice-like design, thus eliminating the need for knots within the rope bed itself. We use 15% more rope than our competitors, which provides a sturdier hammock bed for complete relaxation.
We plate all our hanging hardware with Zinc Plated Coating, including both tree hooks that come standard with our hammocks. The zinc plated coating prevents the accumulation of rust and ensures a longer outdoor life. Our very own One-piece ring-knot and chain, a product of years of development, permanently attaches the chain to the O-ring. This produces a hammock that is more durable and most importantly makes it impossible to lose the chain.
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.
