Don't keep all the comfort and relaxation of a gently swinging hammock to yourself when you can share it with someone special with a double hammock built for two. Hammocks with double space are wider and stronger to easily accommodate two adults, or you and a whole bunch of kids, so everyone can join in.
Most of these hammocks for home or camping use will take between 250kg and 300kg, and offer up to 300cm x 150cm of space to relax and unwind.Home and away
Double hammocks are great in the garden, strung between two trees, and make a great camping accessory too. Camping hammocks are light and portable, to fit in your camping pack, and quick and easy to set up after a long day's hiking in the bush. Hammocks can even be bought with integral mosquito nets, to protect you as you sleep.Choosing your hammock
You can buy double hammocks in a range of materials, from hardwearing canvas for camping, to soft woven cotton for lazing in the backyard. If you are going to leave your hammock out, it's worth considering nylon or polyester styles, which will be more weather resistant. You can choose the traditional style, which gathers at each end, or choose a hammock with a spacer bar, to keep the fabric spread out all the way along.
For the highest quality and top comfort levels, look out for Mexican or Mayan double hammocks, which are woven in the same traditional way they have been for centuries.Hanging your hammock
Before you start looking for your hammock on eBay, think about where and how you are going to hang it. You may need long ropes or chains to tie it around a tree or hooks to attach it to a post. If you don't have anything to hang your hammock from, you need to choose a hammock with its own separate stand. These can be used almost anywhere, indoors or out, giving you instant comfort.
