What is the Best Size of Minky Blanket for Your Bed?

Sleep is so important. Babies need it when they’re little so they can grow, growing children continue to need it so they can also grow, and adults need it mostly to preserve their sanity. All joking aside, the bottom line is that sleep is vital and necessary for all of us. And there’s one thing you can add to your bed to enhance your sleep: a super comfortable, soft blanket. Now, we’re not talking about just any blanket–a minky blanket. Imagine having a king-size blanket to go with your king-size bed. How luxurious and soft and wonderful! Don’t have a king-size bed? Don’t worry. We’ll help you figure out the right size of minky blanket for your bed with these 3 steps. 

Step 1: Start with Standard Blanket Sizes For Beds

How big is a king-size blanket? The answer to that and other blanket size questions goes off the measurements of the bed itself. Standard bed sizes have standard blanket sizes designed to fit. Take a look below at standard blanket sizes to find out what size of minky blanket will fit your bed. 

  • Twin Beds: 66 inches by 90 inches
  • Double Beds: 80 inches by 90 inches
  • Queen Beds: 90 inches by 95 inches
  • King Beds: 108 inches by 95 inches

  •  When shopping for a Sew Sweet minky blanket, it can be helpful to understand the sizes:

    Step 2: Look at Mattress Height Paired with Blankets

    The above-listed dimensions are standard blanket sizes for standard beds. But the thing is, not all beds are standard. All mattresses have varying levels of thickness that can affect the measurements of the blanket you’re looking to lay over your bed. The suggested blanket dimensions below are simply guidelines. If you aren’t necessarily interested in measuring your blanket dimensions to fit your bed’s dimensions, you are completely free to get whatever size blanket you want to lay on your bed. 

    Twin Beds

    10-inch mattress: 60 inches by 88 inches

    14-inch mattress: 90 inches by 88 inches

    22-inch mattress: 90 inches by 88 inches

    Queen Beds

    10-inch mattress: 90 inches by 88 inches

    14-inch mattress: 108 inches by 88 inches

    22-inch mattress: 120 inches by 88 inches

    King Beds

    10-inch mattress: 108 inches by 88 inches

    14-inch mattress: 120 inches by 88 inches

    22-inch mattress: 130 inches by 110 inches

    Step 3: Consider Fabric Types 

    There are a variety of fabrics to choose from once you’ve determined the size of the blanket you want. These include but aren’t limited to:


  • Cotton: Cotton is durable and breathes well, so you can find a version that’s perfect for hot summer months and cold winter ones. 
  • Wool: A blanket made of this material is going to be warm no matter what, so it’s a great choice if you’re going for heat. 
  • Down: Down is lightweight but warm. It has a layer of feathers between two layers of fabric.
  • Minky: Minky material is also known as plush fabric and is made from 100% polyester fibers. Traditionally used to make baby blankets and clothes, it’s luxuriously soft and buttery to the touch.
