The stark-white rope positively pops when set against the deep natural hues and muted earth tones of a typical backyard backdrop. Again and again, this roomy hammock will beckon you to abandon that briefcase and power-down that laptop, to turn your tense back on the indoors and give your cramped-up spirit some serious room to revel. Consider the rope's brilliant-white color as your own personal flag of surrender -- for your senses! Settle into this hand-woven relaxation haven, and give in to the need to sometimes do absolutely nothing at all.
Three-ply soft-spun polyester rope means fewer maintenance woes than cotton, but with the same lofty level of comfort. Resistant to rot, mold, and mildew, our Large Polyester Rope Hammock promises numerous satisfying seasons of surrender.
After years of evolution and experimentation, our Polyester rope has developed into a material that is not only soft to the touch but durable for any outdoor setting. It takes our weavers an hour, along with 1,200 feet of polyester 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.
