How long will cotton or nylon last?
They will last for many years if you give your hammock the proper care. It should not be left outdoors for long periods of time, especially in sunlight and rain. Some people think nylon may be outdoors for long periods of time; this is not the case.
Nylon needs the same proper care as cotton. We also suggest wearing appropriate clothing while you are resting in your hammock. Avoid buttons, jewelry, shoes, watches or any other object that might grab or cut cords. Nevertheless, cut, broken, or burned cords can be repaired by knotting the ends.
