Story Behind the Art: Antonio Jose, from Hammock Artisans of Ceara, has been making hammocks for over 20 years. This now allows him to offer work to over 100 women from the area. The hammock's main body is woven on a loom, and then it is distributed among groups of women to finish. They usually work from home so they may continue looking after their children. Many of the women have taught their techniques to their daughters and granddaughters, thus ensuring the hammock-making tradition is kept alive.

Thank you for contacting us marrrry99. In general, the minimum hanging distance for hammocks without spreader bars is two-thirds of the overall length of the hammock. This hammock is 143 inches long, so 2/3 would be approximately 107 inches. The maximum distance would be that number plus 2 feet (so 131 inches). If you are saying that the hanging distance between 2 walls would be 11 feet, that should still work, as it is 132 inches.
These distances are only recommendations, and can be adjusted to fit your particular circumstances. The closer together you place the hanging points, the higher off of the ground you must go, while the farther apart you place the hanging points, the closer to the ground you can hang the hammock.
For hammocks without spreader bars, 6-8 feet off of the ground is the optimum height for hanging the hammock (but that is pretty flexible).

I would try to find where the studs are in your walls and then you would need wall anchors. I would ask someone at your local hardware store.
