Polyester fiberfill batting Weather-resistant DuraCord rope The beach-inspired Pawleys Island Beaches Quilted Fabric Hammock is specifically designed with Duracord fabric, which offers resistance to fading, mildew, and stains. These soft and supple fabrics are quilted together around a thin polyester fiberfill batting that provides maximum comfort. Solid oak spreader bars are hand-dipped with multiple coats of weather-resistant marine varnish. You’ll love relaxing in this hammock and enjoying the coordinating stripes of blue and citron as well as a natural stripe, reminiscent of pearly sand beaches. How does DuraCord differ from other fabrics? DuraCord is a hybrid fiber due to the many alterations that are made to its base ingredient. It is manufactured in a much smaller denier size meaning individual fibers are smaller making more fibers per yarn. The fibers go through a special texturizing process to give it its soft-to-the-touch, cotton-like feel. Fibers are de-lustered to take away the shiny look of the yarn and give it a cotton-like look. DuraCord fabrics are abrasion resistant, easy to clean, stain resistant, color fast, fade resistant, and have 1,000+ hours of UV resistance. The DuraCord fibers have the properties to make them durable for long outdoor life but without the synthetic feel. About Pawleys Island In 1889, the Original Pawleys Island Rope Hammock was created at Pawleys Island, one of the oldest summer resorts on the South Carolina coast. When river boat pilot Captain Joshua John Ward found the grass-filled mattresses on his boat too hot in the summer, he decided to make a cool and comfortable cotton rope hammock to use on his boat. After several uncomfortable designs, Cap’n Josh made a hammock using wooden spreaders without knots. This original design has proven to be so comfortable that it’s still used in Pawleys Island’s popular hammocks, over a century later.
