COZY COTTON | While New England summer days can be hot and the nights balmy, there are many occasions when a
soft, lightweight cotton blanket or throw is just the extra layer needed to enjoy quintessential moments — watching the sunrise
from the dock, braving a cool day at the beach, or sitting by the fire pit late into the night. Breathable cotton blankets are crafted
throughout the region in impressive weave patterns and beautiful colors, making it hard to choose just one.
