I have used my HH Safari and really like it.
The first 2 times were in winter and spring with no problem.
Then summer came and I started sleeping in it in just my undershorts.
I would wake up a few hours later all lumpy all over and itching like
At first I thought I was getting bitten by mosquitos from head to
foot through the hammock material but then on the second occasion I realized that it was a skin allergy.
It seems that I have an allergy to the fabric. This has never happened to me before at all.
Has this happened to anyone else before?
I contacted HH and as usual their reply was quick.
Ann at HH said that the fabric is "untreated and uncoated" so it is unlikely that this is the cause.
She also suggested I try using a silk sleeping bag liner which is "cool to sleep in but protective "
This sounds like a good idea but I think will be difficult to get into.
I mainly hang on beaches when sea kayaking so sand is going to be a problem too.
I guess I will have to try it.
I will also try washing the hammock.
Any other ideas?
