Good old Double Knit Polyester. It's terrible to wear, and it lasts forever - which is a double whammy - it's kind of an abomination against Mother Nature.
Well, we have a bunch of it and it's not going anywhere, so we might as well make something useful with it. It's great for making really ugly, invincible picnic blankets - I'd like to rebrand them as festival blankets because goodness knows, they need some rebranding.
I always keep one in my car in case of a picnic or music festival; one never knows when a picnic or music festival might present itself and it's good to be prepared.

Condition: Vintage - has some slight staining, but it may wash out.
Note: Due to how our fabrics are sourced, we recommend you pre-wash a swatch of this fabric before committing to washing the entire piece so that you can see firsthand how it reacts. There is no surefire way for us to determine care instructions on secondhand and deadstock items.
All of our fabrics are destash donations or deadstock from other businesses. We check each and every fabric for flaws and do our best to note if a fabric is as-is. Despite our best efforts, we are all still human, so fabrics may have very minor imperfections from age. There is also always an amount of risk associated with secondhand fabrics since sometimes flaws don't appear until the fabric is pre-washed. With that in mind, if you order from us and have a serious issue with your item, please let us know and we will do our best to make it right!
Thank you for shopping second hand first! You're helping us do better for the planet and helping yourself sew sustainably. You can help us spread the word about our little online secondhand fabric shop by Pinning our items and sharing our website with your friends!
We do our best to color-match each photo to the fabric, however, device displays vary greatly in quality, warmth, and vibrancy. We cannot guarantee what you see here will be an exact match to the color of the fabric when it arrives.
