In the Southeastern U.S., sand is to the beach kind of like what sugar is to iced tea: You don't generally find one without the other! And nothing in the world says relaxation quite the way our summertime soft-sand South Carolina beaches do.
With its warm fabric hues recalling stripes of different hues of sand, from powdery dry off-white to water-dappled brown, this superbly crafted, supremely durable two-person quilted fabric hammock delivers the soul-sweet flavor of Lowcountry seaside abandon that you can drink in season after season, right there in your own back yard!
An Original Pawleys Island® Gateway Aspen Large Quilted Hammock is two layers of industry-leading all-weather, solution-dyed synthetic fabric — the top is Sunbrella® in the Regency Sand colors, while the bottom and side-binding are DuraCord® in a solid neutral color — lockstitched over a 1-inch center of plush, resilient, nonabsorbent polyester fiberfill batting to create 18 individual pillowy cushions running the length of the hammock bed.
Both fabrics are not only fast-drying, but also are resistant to rot, mold, mildew and staining, in addition to being exceptionally colorfast and with a softness on par with cotton.
Hammock spreader bars are solid Southern white oak that's been hand-dipped multiple times in marine-quality spar varnish, to heighten the handsome hardwood's natural honey-gold hue.
The ropes attaching the hanging hardware to the hammock bed are likewise made from weather-tough, cottony-soft DuraCord®; we precision-wind all of our own rope ourselves, to exceed even the U.S. military's exacting specifications for strength. Hanging hardware, including chains, is zinc-plated steel, for a further boost in strength, and for heightened rust protection.
As weather-tough as a Pawleys Island® Hammock is, we do still strongly advise storing it in an enclosed dry place away from harsh chemicals and foraging wildlife when the hammock is going unused, or during lengthy stretches of bad weather, to help prolong this product's useful life.
