The new Lasiesta Hammocks are made of real cotton, which is great for coolness, lightness and strength. They look great too, and come in many different pastel hues. They are made with many chords, to help distribute weight more evenly and give you that feeling of just floating in your Cayman Islands paradise.
The new hammocks come in three kinds – single, double or a new design – a hammock-chair! They roll up very small and light, so you can really take them with you anywhere. The prices are very reasonable too.
One thing you may not have heard – hammocks are most comfortable when you lie diagonally on them. This gives your back the best support, as you open the hammock out with your body. The distance necessary between the two suspension points can be determined by a simple rule of thumb: the suspension height should be approximately half the suspension distance. Make sure that the trees are about 3 meters apart.
Depending on the size of your hammock, the trees must be at least 3 meters apart and strong enough to bear the weight. In order to mount the hammock between two trees, a rope is looped around the tree trunk and attached to the hammock.
