A hammock is not just a tropical bedding device. Most places a hammock is hooked up in the northern hemisphere can have the season nicely extended with the addition of a nice wool or cotton blanket or goose down or poly fill comforter and a tie in pillow.This layering is the “Tactile interface” that places the comfort zone on top of the foundation fibers and next to yer hide.This begins the process to develope the art of hammock living.
Because a hammock does not have insulating qualities, body heat will be lost, especially off your back. Even when the ambient temperature is 80 degrees, the temperature of a human, at 98.6, is 18+ degrees higher. Since the body can differentiate temperature changes as little as .2 degrees F, a beach towel can take a chilling situation up onto the more preferable cool zone plateau; the subtle, refined result of fine tuning your hammock gear.Another finess practice is to lay on your hammock just slightly diagonal.This has the advantage of putting a small twist in the bed panel which developes a flat line to locate your bod on,just alittle trick of ours.
Every hammock in my line should be considered a foundation ,a beautiful, basic, durable framework. The way you finish it off is the important final step toward completing your life support system. Note: all my designs have a top/service/side and a bottom/under/side. Contact me for details. The range of hammock accessories is Hue-edge.Send me an image of your full dress rig in situ. These pictures are an important element in design considerations and I value and enjoy your feed back.
Hammock Gear Up: Pillows and blankets
It is my humble opinion that a hammock is not complete without a tie in pillow and blanket(a blanket also keeps the biter bugs from chewing on yer butt(. I can provide a tip top of the line pillow with leather trim and Brass clip rigging(a total beauty, decreative, functional and hypoallergenic) 125.00 for the 18 inch. Sound like a lot of money? It’s a lot of pillow! A top of the line down comforter can cost 3000$/10 times more than the hammock. Reasonable quality is 250$/400.I am still shopping for a brand new Made IN America one, my old import is just about plucked, so much for imported junk. If you know where to find a Really Good eider down comforter with a lite weight,(6.5oz.- sq. yd..) cotton canvas shell PLEASE CALL ME!
