There are a number of reasons why it is a very good idea to buy a hammock if you live in Sydney.

#1 Fast Pace Living

Around the world Sydney is known for it’s fast pace of life. Investing in a hammock is an excellent way to remind you to slow down and relax. A hammock set up in the garden or indoors will remind you to take time out from the hustle and bustle of life to kickback and relax. Life is short and it is important to take time out to contemplate everything – especially in a busy city like Sydney.

#2 Weather

Sydney is the capital of Australia and we all know this country is famous for its beautiful weather. The people of the capital need to lead the way in showing the rest of the country how to make the most of this weather by relaxing outdoors in a hammock. While most of the Western world is wrapped up indoors in cold weather, Australians get to relax in the sun in a hammock.

#3 Expensive Property Prices

Sydney has the highest property prices in Australia. If you live in an expensive property then you need to have a premium quality luxury hammock to compliment it. Thankfully you now have the option to buy such quality hammocks at reasonable prices from the Australian based West Coast Hammock Co.

#4 Business Headquarters

60% of Australia’s top 100 companies have headquarters in Sydney. Is there a better way to brainstorm the next best business idea or career move, than in the comfort of a jumbo handwoven hammock? Maybe you can convince your boss to hang some hammocks in the lunch room to encourage staff to really relax at break time. Stress free employees are more productive and happier in their work.

#5 Lots of People

In this article we are going to look at the key things to consider when purchasing an outdoor hammock. When referring to an outdoor hammock in this case we are talking about a hammock that can be setup outside, without the need to take it down or bring it inside, when the weather is bad.

#1 Weather Resistance

The most important thing to assess when considering an outdoor hammock is the material from which it is made. The most common materials for hammocks include nylon rope, polyester, cotton, and nylon parachute material. Some less common and innovative materials include acrylic yarn, hemp, and silk.

Synthetic materials perform the best in terms of weather resistance. Acrylic yarn and nylon parachute material are completely weather resistant and are not impacted by the elements. Nylon parachute material slightly edges out acrylic in terms of its quick drying attributes. Cotton rates the worst with the wet and dry cycle causing it to rot over a short period of time.

#2 Aesthetic

The hammock is in our opinion an item that can add a new dimension of colour and design to your back garden, front porch, pergola, or any other outdoor setting or structure. A beautifully designed colorful textile is an excellent way to add a new element of contrast to the stone, wood, water and other natural elements of your landscape design.

Acrylic hammocks lend themselves best to the colour dying process and achieve a very deep colour finish. Mixed colour yarn also allows for the hammock to look like a piece of art that can transform and be the icing on the cake of your perfect outdoor relaxation area.

#3 Air Flow

Body temperature is also important. A uniform material like parachute nylon is not breathable and therefore heats up quickly. A woven material allows airflow to permeate through the hammock preventing overheating and allowing you to feel more at one with the surrounding elements. The more loops in the weave the better the airflow attributes.

#4 Comfort

It is important to remember that one of the main reasons we are even considering hammocks to begin with is to relax and feel comfortable in the outdoor setting. Therefore it would be silly not to consider the comfort factor. Acrylic yarn takes the top spot here edging out cotton in second place. Acrylic yarn is unbelievably soft with its small fiber size further enhancing the comfort properties

#5 Ergonomics

When relaxing at the weekend, reading a book, recovering from a hangover, procrastinating or just simply remembering to take time to stop and smell the flowers, it is important that we can spend as long as we want in the hammock without hurting ourselves or getting pains and aches in the joints and bones.

Large jumbo hammocks are the most ergonomic as they allow you to easily lie in the recommended 30 degree diagonal position or completely perpendicular across the hammock bed.
A spreader bar rope hammock is usually unstable and can be easily toppled. Furthermore the hard texture of the stretched ropes can lead to a sore back after a prolonged period in the hammock.

Having considered everything above the ultimate choice for the outdoor hammock is the Acrylic Triple Yarn hand-woven hammock. This unique hammock ticks all the boxes in terms of weather resistance, beautiful designs, thousands of loops allowing ultimate air flow, unmatched comfort, and a design that moulds to the shape of your body allowing full weightless relaxation, combined with ultimate stability.
