A hammock is a large piece of fabric, rope, or netting, and dates back thousands of years. From its invention in Central America, the hammock made its way to Europe in the 17th century and became the go-to bed for sailors on ships. When the hammock is stretched between two points, it forms a sling that can be used to sleep or rest. Hammocks come in various sizes and patterns and are the perfect summer yard accessory, but are also widely used by campers, hikers, and backpackers as a simple and efficient bed on the go. Sleeping in a hammock is unlike sleeping anywhere else. Level up your summer afternoon naps now!
