Move over, cotton. This oversized blanket – seriously, this thing is huge – is made from carefully sourced, prized linen. Why? Well, when compared to cotton, linen is lighter, thinner, twice as absorbent, three times stronger, faster drying, and sand- and dirt-repellant.
Even though it’s twice as big as a beach towel, it folds to the size of a newspaper, so it's easy to fit into a backpack or beach bag. The built-in straps help it to roll up and tie closed, and corner pockets keep the blanket in place when filled with some sand or dirt. It’ll be a reliable companion on any of your trips to the great outdoors, whether it’s a summer trip to the shore or a picnic amid the fall foliage.
