This hammock took several weeks to get to my house, but it was worth the wait. The quality is great and it was very easy to install. I was looking in stores and online and never found anything like this. The weave of the rope is much tighter than traditional hammocks, so it makes for a much more comfortable place to lay, plus your toes, feet and elbows don't end up sticking through. The rope is also made of a soft cotton so it isn't scratchy against your skin. The best part is the fringe - it is truly what makes this hammock so unique and gorgeous. I look out my back window every day and fall in love with this lovely hammock over and over again!!
