Chinchorro is the word Wayuu people use to talk about a hand-made hammack. They use a rudimentary loom to make the body of the hammack. Then, the hanging parts are crochetted.
When a Wayuu woman is pregnant, she starts making a hammack with will be used by her child through his life.
This hammack measures 150 inches in end to end length and 70 inches wide excluding the crochet area which is 15 inches additional in both sides.
