Caring for Your Cotton Hammock: A Comprehensive Guide

Caring for Your Cotton Hammock: A Comprehensive Guide

We hope you are enjoying the utmost comfort and relaxation in your cotton hammock. As you already know, our  Limbo Imports hammocks and chairs are crafted with 100% natural cotton, offering an unparalleled level of coziness and timeless charm. Cotton, with its inherent charm and softness, outshines synthetic materials like polyester, nylon, polypropylene in many ways. Not only does it cocoon you in ultimate comfort and softness, but it also brings a timeless aesthetic to your outdoor space.

In light of this, we want to share some crucial care instructions to help you cherish your cotton hammock for years to come. While cotton offers exceptional benefits, it requires a little extra attention to maintain its natural beauty and structural integrity.

Our hammocks and hammock chairs are all made from 100% cotton which is a natural material and can be more susceptible to fading and damage if it gets wet or receives direct sunlight or a prolonged period of time. While it is designed to be durable, cotton hammocks cannot be left outside permanently. Rain will weaken the fabric and cause mildew.

We recommend bringing your hammock indoors when not in use or to set them up under a covered outdoor patio or pergola. Keeping it indoors or covered area will undoubtedly ensure its longevity.


Furthermore, when faced with moisture, such as after rain or spills, allowing your hammock to air dry completely before storage is crucial. Hanging it in a well-ventilated area will expedite the drying process. This simple step will protect it from any potential issues like mold or mildew and preserve its inviting appeal.


Accidental spills or stains may occur on your hammock from time to time. In such cases, spot clean the affected area gently using a soft brush or sponge, mild detergent and water. Be sure to rinse thoroughly and air dry the cleaned spot.



All Limbo hammocks and pillow covers are washable. Please hand wash and soak for 2-4 hrs. with a soft detergent. You can also add a scoop of Oxi-clean for a brighter look. Line dry. (Do not use a washing machine)  READ DETAILED TUTORIAL
