Folding a Mexico hammock into the compact size it arrives in can also be a bit of a challenge at first. We do have a couple of videos below to help you out.

Folding your hammock up is a good option for at the end of the if you wish to put it into storage or you want to pack to take it somewhere or travel with.

If you are still having trouble or don't have the space to fold it like in the videos, another method you can try is to basically turn your hammock into a big knot. What you do is hold the hammock by the arm loops together. Then twist the hammock around a couple of time to keep it together. From here hold the hammock up high with one hand and bring your other arm up under approx the middle of the body of the hammock. Twist the arm holding the hammock body in towards your chest then bring the arms down around and through the hole your hand and arm are creating. Pull the loops through and you have a big single knot in your hammock. Don't make it tight. This will allow you to then store away in a cupboard with less chance of tangling.

With this method or separately another good option is to place your hammock into a pillowcase when storing. This protects it from accidental snags or tangling also.
