The various sizes and styles of hammocks also vary by their total length and space requirements. On each product page we do provide information on the hammock space you will require for that particular product. Generally you need around 3m or greater of space. You can also find more info through the following page; hammock hanging.
The best material will be the one that best suits your particular needs. If softness and comfort is your highest priority then go for cotton. Want to save the planet, then go for organic cotton. Like to leave your hammock outside in all weather - than HamacTex is best for you. More detailed material information can be found here; hammock fabrics
How long will that cool t-shirt you just bought last? Hard to say exactly. While we strive to provide only very high quality hammock products this will depend on how much you use it, how you use it, the elements and how well you look after it. Cotton hammocks should be protected from moisture where possible, such as rain and overnight dew, then stored dry when not in use. HamacTex® and travel hammocks are more robust when exposed to the elements and can be left outside all summer long. They are not indestructible though and will still wear over time, so to enhance longevity you might as well pop these inside if you know you are not going to be using for a bit. With all our hammocks - a bit of simple care and you can expect many years if not a lifetime of quality use and enjoyment. Check out our hammock care page for more info.

From a tree, post, beam or wall. With rope, screws or bolts. Depending on your hammock space your hammock needs will vary. Take a look at this page here which has further information on the methods of typical hammock hanging; hammock hanging.
No sorry, as per the question above, everyone will have a different hammock setup and require different items. So rather than charging everyone for hanging accessories they may not need, these are not included and are available for sale separately so you can purchase just what you need.
Gently and lovingly, look after your hammock and it will look after you. This is the page you are looking for; hammock care.
Sure can. Hammocks without spreader bars are machine washable at 30°C (86 °F). Hammocks with spreader bars obviously won't fit in a washing machine but can be washed by hand.
Cotton hammocks are high quality and very robust. However, due to the natural properties of cotton fabric they should not be left outdoors for extended periods of time and should be protected from moisture where possible. Some of our range of hammocks are made of weatherproof polypropylene (HamacTex®), which has added durability qualities. But even these hammocks should not be left outdoors all year round and while more resistant to the elements they will still wear over time. So if they are not being used, you should take them down and store them inside.
Usually, our hammocks do not need repairs. But should the need arise, sorry my skills aren't in hammock weaving or sewing. I recommend asking a tailor for help.
No, you're safe there, the hammocks are colourfast and the colours will not rub off or leach off onto your nice new decking. Just to be on the safe side, though, we recommend not using your hammock while it is wet - not a really pleasant experience anyway!
