Everyone who got in this hammock wanted one. I bought 2 myself. I love that there are no chemicals in it. The size is wonderful. I bought a mattress that didn't work out so this was my full time bed for awhile. You can't beat the quality of sleep you get. The fringe is beautiful and really elevates the look. This hammock will last for several more years. It is very substantial yet gets softer with washing (tie the ends with shoelaces before washing and use the gentle cycle to protect the fringe.) Because of dust mite allergies, I use hot water with no problems. I love it!
