These are quite nice hemp “hammocks”. Great new condition like they were made yesterday. The two I purchased were meant to be used as a ground cloth for camping, but they may end up used on a rustic cot-like frame in my hunting tent. Good item.
Hemp is second to none, I'll say that again, second to none! Canvas has been my go to for many projects but it has a bad habit of stretching, and nylon.. well its nylon. But hemp? Oh boy, they should make everything out of this stuff! It's arguably more durable than any natural fiber, less flammable than nylon, more pliable than canvas, and it's as light as a feather! These hammocks are strong dont doubt them, you could absolutely use it as a cot as well if you fix up a frame for it. I'm curious if these were once waxed to protect the fibers because they smell vaguely similar to beeswax, nevertheless I highly recommend you get your hands on these quick! Even if you have no intention of using it as a hammock or cot, the fabric itself has great value and I'm genuinely thankful for the folks at McGuires. The products they sell are always at the best price and their circulating inventory keeps you excited for what's coming next!
