How to waterproof any hammock


The cold weather has descended upon the Simply Hammocks HQ today and our trusty heaters are going ten to the dozen. So we anticipate that you might not be getting outside as much in your hammocks and if you are they might be getting wet.

So this month we partnered up with Nikwax who are the leaders in fabric weather proofing so it was an obvious choice to include them in our Hammock Care Kit.

Many of our hammocks are weather proof so they can be left out in the rain for longer. But what if you don't have a weatherproof hammock, or worst still your weatherproof hammock is not beading water as effectively as it once did?

Well with Nikwax's Cotton Proof you can weatherproof any hammock purchased from our trusty website. It's the easy to use, safe, high performance, wash in waterproofing for all our hammocks.

With Nikwax Cotton Proof you can waterproof any of our hammocks (cotton, silk, canvas, poilycotton or elltex) with this wash-in waterproofing. You can use it in a washing machine or hand wash, which is useful as many of our hammocks are hand wash only.

Nikwax Cotton Proof for hammocks is now availble to buy at Simply Hammocks
