Some things to look out for when buying hammocks ?

Here are some details to look for when considering which hammock to buy.

1. Hammocks With Cadejos

Cadejos is the Spanish word for chains. This refers to the twisted plaits at each end of the hammock. These look beautiful and they help to distribute the weight perfectly which gives better comfort and balance. This technique is common with Colombian hammocks, but not so common on hammocks made elsewhere.

2. Where is it made ?

Hammocks have a long tradition in Colombia and Brazil. There are some traditional design differences between the two countries. One of these is the open loop at the end. This makes it quicker and easier to hang the hammock in different places and again distribute the weight a bit better. It is a tiny difference, maybe more aesthetic than anything else, but something to consider.

3. Which Materials Are Used ?

Many of our Hamaca hammocks are made from recycled cotton. This is many times kinder to the environment than organic cotton. The recycled cotton comes from Mexico where it is spun in to yarn and dyed before being shipped to Colombia to be woven. Cotton is very nice and soft. If you want the ultimate in strength and fade resistance, then choose a hammock made from polyester or Sunbrealla or a mix of cotton and polyester.

4. Good Working Conditions ?

Some of the people working in the hammock factory we use in Colombia have been working there for 25 years! Staff turnover is very low due to the good working conditions. You can see videos and interviews at the Colombian factory here.

5. Extra Thick And Strong Material

When we chose the thickness of the fabric and the strength capacity of the strings, we made everything at the highest practical level. This means the hammock fabric is thicker and stronger and the strings will be durable for many many years. We simply noted the specifications of competitors hammocks and upgraded them a bit.

How do I spend Bitcoins on hammocks ?

Once you have bought some Bitcoins, you will need to transfer them to your smartphone wallet. I would recommend a wallet such as Samourai or Phoenix (from the Play Store) if you want to use Lightning, Then when you get to the checkout of the website you will be presented with a QR code. You simply open your Bitcoin wallet, point it at the QR code and confirm to send the funds. It is so simple and quick. The computer will immediately acknowledge receipt of the funds.

Bitcoins are perfectly safe, much safer than a credit or debit card. It is trillions and trillions of times easier to guess someones 16 digit credit card number, expiry date and ccv code than it would be to guess a private key for a Bitcoin address.
