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. In spite of the decades since its heyday, there's still an abundance of this stuff. 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 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. They're also great for draping over your porch swing for chilly mornings as they're pretty weatherproof.

Content: 100% Polyester

Condition: Scraps might be pieces from clothing that has been deconstructed - a true act of upcycling! There may be stains or flaws - incorporate them into your ugly blanket or cut around them - sewist's choice!

Note: Double knit polyester can be washed in a bleach load of laundry without damage, so if you have some stubborn stains - go ahead and try diluted bleach to remove them.
