Cotton

Most hammocks are made of cotton as its qualities basically make it perfect for that purpose. Cotton is tearproof, absorbs moisture easily and is very soft to the touch.

Tensile strength

Hammocks have to withstand a lot of wear and tear during their lifetimes. In order to make a hammock durable it is important that lying surface and suspension ropes are tearproof and that they can carry the body weight of several persons. Due to its long fibres, cotton innately is very tearproof and robust. But we also go the extra mile by carrying out regular quality checks for our yarns. That way we can be absolutely sure that your cotton hammock keeps our promise in terms of robustness and comfort.

Climate control

Especially when it’s warm, your body looses fluids when you take your nap in a hammock. Pure cotton is almost as absorbent for fluids as it gets: it soaks up your sweat, leaving you comfortably dry.Most hammocks are made of cotton as its qualities basically make it perfect for that purpose. Cotton is tearproof, absorbs moisture easily and is very soft to the touch.

Soft touch

Cotton fibres also provide the fabric with its comfortable surface structure. Pure cotton is very soft to the touch and skin unlike any other hammock material. You can recognise cotton fabrics by the fact that the fabric will not produce any lint.

Lightweight

As with silk and cashmere, the weight is also an indicator of quality for cotton.Quality differences are associated with the length of the fibre, and regarding this fact, the differences can be substantial. The pure cotton we use at LA SIESTA has long fibres and is very light.

 

The cotton hammocks offered by LA SIESTA are made of pure cotton (100%). Contrary to recycled cotton pure cotton guarantees bright colours, highest possible comfort and a lasting hammock experience.

Those looking for alternatives to conventional cotton for environmental reasons while not wanting to compromise on comfort and robustness will find their material of choice in organic cotton. Organic cotton offers the same positive properties like conventional cotton while at the same time protecting human beings and nature.
