In the inviting Flax color, the overlapping pillowy ribbons of this handsome, innovative quilted fabric hammock are a ready compliment to any outdoor setting, integrating easily with the earthtones of yard and garden. Yet good looks and an easily paired complimentary color still tell very little of this hammock's wonderful success — because this is comfort on a grand scale! The Pawleys Island® Soft Weave® line is woven from comfy all-weather fabric that's not only resistant to staining, rot, mold and mildew, but also includes a plush center of nonabsorbent polyester fiberfill batting in each fabric strip, for added comfort. The fabric thread is solution-dyed, so the pleasing Flax color isn't applied to the finished product through washing or dipping, but goes in during the making of the thread fiber itself, becoming a permanent part of the fiber. Hammock spreader bars are solid Southern white oak that's been hand-dipped multiple times in marine-quality spar varnish, to heighten the handsome hardwood's natural honey-gold hue. The ropes attaching the hanging hardware to the hammock bed are made from weather-tough, cottony-feeling soft-spun polyester; we precision-wind all of our own rope ourselves, to exceed even the U.S. military's exacting specifications for strength. Hanging hardware, including chains, is zinc-plated steel, for a further boost in strength, and for heightened rust protection, while the grommets for connecting rope to hammock bed are brass-plated rolled-rim steel. Don't forget the matching Flax Soft Weave® Hammock Pillow, for an extra boost in both looks and comfort! As weather-tough as a Pawleys Island® Hammock is, we do still strongly advise storing it in an enclosed dry place away from harsh chemicals and foraging wildlife when the hammock is going unused, or during lengthy stretches of bad weather, to help prolong this product's useful life.
