Spun poyester is the best choice to use in your hammock swing. It is a very soft rope but extremely strong. It can be dyed any color and is mold and mildew resistant. It is also resistant to sun fade. Another advantage of poyester over it's natural counter part cotton is the fact that it will not stretch. This may cause one side of your swing to hang lower than the other.
