Maybe it's the vivid Royal Blue color, like you scooped out a slice of OBX sky on a perfect cloudless late-spring day. Or maybe it's the intense contours of the hammock bed itself, like you stuck all those missing clouds you just stole from the sky inside soft fabric, and then stitched them into plush connecting pillows.
Whatever the initial attraction, people routinely flock to the Royal Blue Pillowtop Hammocks we keep on display out front of our Duck and Kill Devil Hills stores. Your kids or spouse suddenly disappear on you while shopping? Go check the Pillowtop — they're probably there. Because once someone gets into one of these impressive leisure creations, they don't tend to get right back out! So seriously comfy, so uncommonly relaxing, so … what's the rush in doing anything else anyway?
The top and bottom layer of our Tufted Hammocks is the solution-dyed synthetic Sunbrella®. These two lockstitched synthetics sandwich a thick center of plush, resilient polyester hollowfill fiber manufactured from recycled plastic drink bottles.
The best known, most established outdoor fabric available, Sunbrella® is not only resistant to rot, mold, mildew and staining, but is superbly fade-resistant as well. It's also soft as cotton to the touch.
Our Tufted Hammocks' pillowy contours come courtesy of eight well-placed brass-plated rolled-rim steel grommets, which have the added function of keeping rainwater from pooling in the hammock bed.
The hammock bed itself is offset on each end by thick spreader bars of in honey-hued Southern white oak that's been repeatedly hand-dipped in marine-grade spar varnish.
Hanging chains and O-rings are rust-resistant galvanized steel.
Our Royal Blue Tufted Hammock includes an attachable trapezoid-shaped tufted head-pillow of the same contoured Sunbrella® fabric and pillowy center of recycled polyester hollowfill fiber.
Despite the advanced weatherability of a Nags Head Hammock, we do always recommend storing it in an enclosed dry place away from harsh chemicals and foraging wildlife during prolonged bad weather and other protracted periods when it's going unused, to ensure its longest possible life.
