Welcome to Spring!! Well, kind of. I live in Melbourne and we’re known for our bipolar weather so we’re still getting some Winter days mixed in with the Spring but I’ve been so looking forward to the sun that I’ll celebrate anyway!
The lovely people at Sand Cloud Apparel sent me this awesome beach towel to try out which is perfect for this weather!
I’m not a huge beach go-er, but who doesn’t love sitting outside on the grass with a good book? That being said, sitting on prickly grass with nothing comfy under you isn’t as fun. So I took my Sand Cloud Towel outside and got cozy!
One thing I feel like I should let you know is that although it’s a ‘towel’ it doesn’t have the usual towel texture you might expect. The ‘towel’ is handwoven out of Turkish cotton and while this doesn’t make it very thick, it does make it soft. Due to this it’s light and quick-drying!
The towel also features a removable pillow. I did expect the pillow to have at least a plain pillow cover on it, which it didn’t, but that’s my main complaint.
If you remove the pillow, the towel doubles as a sarong! And a very cute one at that.
As someone who isn’t a beachy person, I don’t know how often I’d use this. I’d rather a picnic rug or something thicker to sit on grass. HOWEVER if you love the beach (which I think most Australians do – I’m the odd one out!) this is fantastic!! The material even repels sand! Due to the close weave and the texture sand doesn’t stick to it much at all.
One last thing I want to point out. One of the reasons I’m telling you about this awesome beach towel even though I’m not a beach-goer myself is because the guys at Sand Cloud are really into giving back. They’ve got a strong passion for the ocean, and as such donate 10% of their net profits to various charities that help preserve our marine life! How awesome is that?
So, this brings me to the goodies!
