ALL cotton rope hammocks are stretchy. If using a stand, adjust or remove chain so that it is at the best height to begin with. This cotton hammock has very thick and durable cording, which is also very soft. The weave is not so loose to make you feel like you could lose a foot or small child in it,...

I have ordered several of these Canberra cotton hammocks over the last several years. The first ones lasted 2 years each, and they were well made.
Recently, the last 3 that I bought have worn out much more quickly. This is in part due to the abrasive holes on the spreaders. These holes are not sanded down to a smooth finish like they used to be, so they tend to cut the rope at its most vulnerable point. The other problem is that the weave of the rope is much looser now. It doesn't support my body well ( I weigh only 120 lbs), and my elbows, feet, etc, tend to slip through the holes. Also, the quality of the cotton rope is much worse. It even arrived with frayed parts on some strands of rope!
I am not going to buy any more of these hammocks. Instead,I am going to shop for polyester or nylon substitutes such as Duracord. These are more expensive, but I want to feel good about lying in the hammock. I don't want to have complaints.

I have had 4 hammocks made by ABO in the past 5-7 years. They do not hold up to time and weather. I left my 3rd one out last winter and it all but disintegrated. I took the fall for that one because it should have been put away in the fall. This spring I ordered my 3rd and hung it out. We used it twice and in less than two months the strings came unraveled and untied. Sierra Trading Post was very understanding and sent me my 4th and final hammock right away. I hung it up and it came unraveled in less than a week. Not one person even sat in it. So this hammock is also being returned for a refund.
