The Queen size is like a double hammock, and is a good size for taller people or the perfect, two person hammock. Often known as the Matrimonial, the woven bed expands as wide as 7 feet. This one is an ideal for couples, yet is still compact enough to take along on a camping trip or picnic. If this is your first hammock for sharing, this one would be a good start.
The Queen is a light yet strong hammock. Easy to carry, easy to handle, it makes for a great portable hammock. This one you want if you want to take it for a picnic, for backpacking and camping trips. This one is a great versatile outdoors hammock. For a romantic afternoon for 2 average size adults, this is the one for you!
The hammock's weave will open up more than in the larger sizes, but will still remain very comfortable. For those who want to spend their days laying in a hammock, get the largest one you can because the larger your hammock, the more comfortable it will be when lying it.
Often called the Matrimonial in Mexico, the Queen is woven using an open style that allows the hammock to expand and contract freely. This means that larger size hammocks will provide more strands in the same amount of space when stretched out to your body's length. If you were snoozing solo, there'd be extra webbing to wrap around youself like a blanket.

"I've been meaning to write back since receiving the Mayan hammock order but we've been having too much fun enjoying it outdoors! It is perfect for rolling into a backpack and taking hiking or camping, then setting it up wherever we can find two trees far enough apart. We have gotten a lot of compliments from people that see us hanging out in a hammock almost anywhere we can!"

Soila is 43 years old. She is the mother of 6 kids. She knows how to write her name and basic writing but does not know how to read. She first started weaving as a child of 10 years old and has passed on the skills to her children. Her 6 children range in age from 24 to 5 years old. Apart from the youngest, all the members of her family weave hammocks for a living. In can take up to 2 weeks to weave a hammock, and the family can weave about 6 hammocks a month.
They live in a 1 room cinder block house with a cement floor. It’s not an easy life for the Mayan people and over the years of hard toil, Soila is finding it harder to weave and can contribute 1 hammock a month to the family income. Walking around the hammock loom she is able to weave a few rows at a time before having to rest or tend to her youngest one. Despite the challenges, Soila has a ready smile and is proud to be a part of the weaving community. Continue reading here for more info on Soila and hammock weaving.
