PRODUCT: Hammocks

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
  • Comfortable
  • Absorbent
  • Breathable
  • Hypo-allergenic
  • Course or soft blends
  • Resists stretching
  • Mildew resistant
  • Anti-microbial
  • UV resistant
