The Original! Our classic Large Cotton Rope Hammock is among the most luxurious examples of living history you're ever likely to experience. This superb hammock's nearly thousand feet of soft, strong, 100-percent cotton 3-ply rope is handsomely hand-woven into a lattice-like cradle of relaxation, for gently rocking those workaday cares away. While wide enough for two, who could blame you if you wanted that extra space all to yourself?
Handcrafted in much of the same way for the last 130 years, our Cotton rope is comprised of 100% natural cotton yarns spun with precision twisting and balance. It takes our weavers an hour, along with 1,200 feet of cotton rope, to weave a single 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.
