Looking for the perfect baby blanket? Minky Blankets are the best choice.
Minky is a plush microfiber. Since it is so fuzzy, you’ll want to run your fingers over the fabric and rub it against your face. Minky is so super soft because of its long threads or pile. The longer the pile the softer the fabric.
The top manufacturer of minky is Shannon Fabrics. They are the industry standard. The brand name is Cuddle. The fabric sold in big box stores doesn’t compare. There is a weird texture and it loses its embossed texture after being washed.
Cuddle is long lasting. It takes a long time to wear out. Minky is more durable than cotton. If you get a hole, it does not unravel. The color lasts longer than cotton also. The fabric is easy to wash. Wash cold, dry low. Do not use fabric softener. I have several blanket myself both for me and my little girl. The color and softness of the fabric last even after lots of washes
There are many patterns available in lots of different colors. Pattern that are available: chevron, dots, arrows, geometric, animal prints, faux hide, floral, and other fun prints. There are over 90 colors of minky dots to create a beautiful custom blanket. The coral, navy, silver, and white modern floral pattern below is one of my favorites.
