    Firstly measure the gap between the two fixing points and then ensure you select a hammock that has an end-to-end length that is lower. You can find this on each hammock in the specifications. You can then use our fixings to make up any shortfall as they are all adjustable. The easiest option is to suspend your hammock from one of our stands.

    You can hang a hammock in many different ways. The easiest way is to hang it on one of our stands, which are available in metal or wood.

    Alternatively, if you have trees in your garden you can hang it between two trees using our adjustable tree fixings. Alternatively you can hang it between posts or walls, using our wall fixings. And, if you have one tree, you can support the other end with our special Madera Post. Read more in our extensive guide to hanging a hammock.

    As a distinguished hammock brand, we take pride in independently testing our hammocks and stands through the reputable European TUV (safety accreditation) and the GS (quality mark) certification processes. This rigorous evaluation ensures that our range is not only safe but also designed for longevity.

    The lifespan of our products is mainly determined by the care you provide. With proper maintenance, we have delighted customers who have enjoyed using our hammocks for over a decade. To prolong the life of your hammock, it is essential to keep it clean and dry at all times, which will contribute to its lasting durability and comfort.

    Ultimately, the ideal hanging height depends on your preference. However, we suggest hanging the hammock at a height that allows for easy access, typically around waist level. It's important to take into account the needs of others in your household who may also use the hammock. For an optimal setup, we recommend hanging it approximately 120cm (47 inches) above ground level, ensuring comfort and accessibility for everyone.

    You can leave all our hammocks outside and the occasional shower will not hurt them, providing they had time to fully dry. However, if they are continually wet or left out over damper periods, mould could form and this wil weaken the material. Some of our hammocks are made with more weatherproof material, so they are more resistant to rain and sun fade, allowing them to dry faster too. Learn more about leaving a hammock in the rain.

    Our hammocks are available in three categories: single, double, or family size. As individual needs vary, we provide the weight capacity for each hammock in the product specifications. While our hammocks are tested well beyond these weight limits to accommodate sudden movements, we advise selecting a hammock based on the weight it will typically support. When purchasing a hammock along with fixings or a stand, please make sure their capacities align with your intended use to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience.

    Established in 2010, we have grown to become Europe's leading hammock retailer, with a steadfast commitment to selling only the finest products. Our simple strategy involves offering hammocks that we would personally buy, ensuring comfort, style, and unparalleled quality. While you may find cheaper alternatives, often made in China, their short lifespan and potential for failure may result in injury. Our hammocks, on the other hand, are built to stand the test of time without compromising safety.

    Our company is committed to ethical and sustainable practices. We ensure that our workers in Brazil are fairly compensated for their craft, and every hammock purchase supports local Brazilian charities. Our wooden hammock stands are FSC-certified and made with responsibly managed wood. The factory that produces our stands uses sustainable production techniques, such as converting sawdust into energy to power the factory. Our commitment to sustainability goes beyond just our products. We believe in making a positive impact on the world and reducing our environmental footprint. By choosing our hammocks, you are not only investing in a high-quality and comfortable product but also supporting ethical and sustainable practices.

    To clean your hammock, first remove any loose dirt or debris. Depending on the material of your hammock, you can hand-wash it with a mild detergent. Avoid using bleach or fabric softeners as they can damage the hammock's fibers. After washing, rinse the hammock thoroughly with cold water to remove any soap residue and hang it up to air dry in a shaded area. Do not tumble dry or expose the hammock to any heat sources as this can shrink or damage the material. For stains that are harder to remove, you can use a mixture of baking soda and water or vinegar and water. Gently scrub the affected area with a soft brush and rinse thoroughly. Remember to take good care of your hammock and it will provide you with years of comfort and relaxation. Read our blog on how to clean a hammock.

    Yes, hammocks can be used both indoors and outdoors. In fact, hammocks are becoming an increasingly popular alternative to traditional indoor seating. They are a great way to add a unique and relaxing touch to your indoor decor. When hanging a hammock indoors, be sure to choose a strong and sturdy anchor point. Many indoor hammocks come with their own stands for added convenience. It is also important to consider the size and weight capacity of your hammock to ensure that it is suitable for indoor use.

    We make our products from a variety of materials, including recycled cotton, EllTex, and parachute silk. We use recycled cotton for its softness and sustainability, while EllTex is a special material that feels like cotton but is water and UV resistant, making it perfect for outdoor use. Our ultralight camping hammocks use parachute silk for its exceptional lightness and strength. Rest assured that our hammocks are made with the highest-quality materials for your comfort and durability.

    The weight capacity a hammock varies depending on the size and type, with singles supporting around 120kg, doubles 200kg, and family sizes 300kg, however, these are only recommended weights. We test our hammocks to much higher thresholds of over 600-800kg. When pairing your hammock with a stand, be sure to check the stand weight capacity meets your needs as well. Rest assured that our hammocks are built to last and can support a wide range of weights for your ultimate relaxation.

    It's best to store a hammock indoors and in a box to protect it from the elements and prevent rodents from getting to it. The sun, rain, and snow can cause the fabric to deteriorate, and rodents can chew through the material. A plastic storage bin or cardboard box with a tight-fitting lid can be used to keep the hammock safe. Learn more Here.

    If you're planning to sleep overnight in a hammock, comfort is key. Brazilian non-spreader hammocks are an excellent choice due to their design. They are typically made with a high-quality cotton fabric that creates a cocoon effect when you lay in them, providing a cozy, snug feel. The lack of spreader bar means the hammock will naturally cradle your body, giving you better back support and making it an ideal choice for a good night's sleep.

    Long-term care for your hammock will depend on its material and usage. Regularly inspect your hammock for any signs of wear and tear. If it's made from fabric, consider washing it gently by hand or on a delicate cycle in a washing machine if the manufacturer's instructions allow. Always ensure it's thoroughly dry before storing to prevent mold and mildew. If left outdoors, protect your hammock from harsh weather conditions by taking it down during periods of heavy rain or snow. If possible, store it indoors or in a dry, ventilated area when not in use.

    When choosing a location for your hammock, there are several things to consider. First, ensure the area is safe and free from hazards. If you're using trees, they should be sturdy enough to hold your weight and the distance between them should fit your hammock's length. Hammocks with stands are a great option as they can be moved around easily, so you can follow the sun or shade throughout the day. Additionally, think about your preferred view and the amount of privacy the location offers. Lastly, check the ground below the hammock is soft and free from sharp objects in case of accidental falls.

    The main difference between spreader and non-spreader hammocks lies in their design. Spreader hammocks feature a bar at each end that keeps the hammock flat and taut, making it easy to get in and out of. However, they can be a bit unstable and prone to flipping if not balanced correctly. Non-spreader hammocks, on the other hand, do not have these bars, so they form a natural curve when hung. They are more stable and often considered more comfortable, as they conform better to your body shape, but they might be a bit harder to enter and exit. It's a matter of personal preference, so you might want to try both types before making a decision.

    Hammocks are a versatile and beneficial addition to any home or outdoor space. Not only do they provide a unique spot to relax and unwind, but they can also enhance the aesthetic appeal of your garden or patio. Hammocks are known to aid in stress relief, improve reading comfort, and can even contribute to better sleep quality. Plus, with a variety of styles and materials available, you can find the perfect hammock to match your personal style and comfort preferences.

    Purchasing a hammock online can be convenient, but there are several factors to consider to ensure you're getting a quality product. Evaluate the material and construction of the hammock - look for durable fabrics and sturdy stitching. Consider the size and weight capacity of the hammock to ensure it meets your needs. Check reviews and ratings from previous customers to gauge product quality and customer service. Finally, check the return policy in case the hammock does not meet your expectations upon delivery. Choosing the right hammock requires careful consideration but can lead to countless hours of relaxation and enjoyment.
