When the breeze picks up, it is so nice to wrap up in a lightweight blanket.  

Weave this organic cotton blanket which can serve equally well as a picnic cloth or beach towel.  This is such an easy project in twill weave structure that is sure to please. 

The naturally colored organic yarns will become darker when washed and will continue to change throughout the life of the cloth.
