SUBMARKETS: Camping, leisure, furniture
Day 25 of our 31 Days of Hemp campaign arrives just in time for summer getaways: hemp hammocks. Hemp textiles and cording are great for hammocks due to high durability and holding their shape well throughout the years. Usually woven or knotted to form a comfortable, lightweight sling (to sit in or lay down), these portable cradles add the perfect “ahhh” factor for a relaxing getaway — even if that means stealing a simple, quiet moment in the yard. Hemp netting is also beneficial for other summer activities, such as lacrosse and fishing.
Useful characteristics of hemp rope and cloth include:
- Durable and long lasting
- Retains dyes
- Course or soft blends
- Resists stretching
- Mildew resistant
- UV resistant
