Best type of blanket for park/picnic?

Has anyone found a type of blanket they love to use while at the park? We tend to grab whatever one we have available, though it either collects all the grass clippings or if the ground is slightly damp, the blanket also feels damp. It would be nice to get a blanket that works well and cleans up easily.

    I use a fitted bed sheet and use my shoes to keep the sides up. It works well and keeps the dirt or sand from blowing on the blanket because the sides are up blocking it.
      My mom used old jeans, sewed them together and kept it in the car. That would keep the damp out.. You could also take a fitted sheet, put things in the four corners and it might help keep the grass out. Saw it o Pinterest to use at a beach.
