Brazilian hammocks are cross woven (fabric) hammocks, frequently colorful, and often beautifully adorned. One of the most comfortable sleep systems in the world is the Brazilian hammock bed, which is still widely used in the rural areas of Brazil. As they are produced to be used as beds, they are extremely comfortable and supportive. They differ from the Mayan and Nicaraguan hammocks in that they are cross woven fabric rather than open weave, and as such, are not ventilated within the weave. The Brazilian hammock is, therefore, less cooling in the summer heat than the open weave style. By the same token, however, they are splendid for cooler climates and mild weather use. Many people prefer these hammocks for sleeping and overnight use because they are tighter woven, and feel very secure. It is also easier to incorporate bedding, if desired in the more stable platform that this hammock provides. Brazilian hammocks can be loomed by hand or by machine. The Brazilian hammock fringe, however, is almost always crocheted by hand, and is added both as an adornment and as a light coverlet. Whatever reasons you may have for wanting to buy a Brazilian hammock I hope we have a Brazilian hammock for sale that meets your needs. As not everyone has two trees properly spaced, or access to the structural elements of their walls or decks, we have Brazilian hammock and stand combinations that will enable you to enjoy a Brazilian cotton hammock on a breezy summer day or cold winter night with equal ease.
It is helpful in choosing a hammock to pick the right size for your intended use. While a Brazilian style double hammock will suit most adults for sleeping purposes, a single is probably all that is needed for a smaller adult or child. We have some very large Brazilian hammocks that will hold an entire family recreationally, or suit the large and tall individual looking for a hanging bed.
