Reservoir is a blanket that is perfect for an evening picnic on the shore or to protect yourself from the cool breeze while sailing the seas. Nautical hues create blocks of color inspired by the blocks of a quilt. No intarsia needed – this blanket cleverly uses stripes of color knit in nine strips to create the graphic effect.
