It's uncomfortable and usually unsightly, but it wears like cast iron & makes a great picnic blanket! You'll be able to use that blanket for the rest of your life and then pass it on to a worthy heir for another lifetime of use so plan your estate accordingly.
You can buy a blanket we've made with fairly paid labor right here in Kansas, USA. They're pricey because these things take time! If you'd rather make your own, we have the supplies right here!
We also have a few items of clothing that were in the stacks of de-stashed double knit - you can wear them or break them down to use in another project.
