3 Reasons to Take A Blanket Over A Towel to the Beach This Summer

When you're packing up the car this summer for the beach, don't forget the sunscreen, beach toys, chairs, umbrella, and snacks. But instead of packing beach towels to lay out on, try one of our linen or linen/cotton day blankets, which are perfect for the beach!

1. Sweat wicking

If you choose one of our linen blankets, they will help keep you cool and wick sweat from your body as you soak up the rays. Not only that, but our linen blankets will dry quickly if you decide to take a dip in the ocean or lake!

2. Larger than beach towels

Don't let your head or your feet stick into the sand. Instead, stay on your blanket...which is significantly larger than your beach towel. You'll also be able to fit more than one person on a blanket. Can you say picnic on the beach? Pictured above is our cotton/linen day blanket. Smaller than a blanket but still quite large at 50"x80"

3. More comfortable than beach towels

Sure, terrycloth is great, but there is nothing more comfortable and cozy than a blanket. Stretch out and enjoy endless comfort during your time in the sand and the surf this summer.

    I love this idea for the beach! Not only is the linen water wicking and comfortable in the hot weather it is nice to not have to haul out the "beach" towels each Summer.
