We at Sew Sweet Minky Designs love to make the softest minky blankets for our shoppers. We want our blankets to be the chosen cuddle-buddy for you, your little ones, and your fur babies.
But, you’ve probably noticed we have a lot of different types of minky fabric in our blankets. You may wonder which one of these blankets is actually the softest. We guarantee that any of our blankets will be some of the softest things you ever touch, but some of the different blankets can offer unique textures that might not work with your personal taste. So here’s a helpful guide to help you find the perfect minky blanket.
What Is Minky Fabric?
Minky is not mink fabric—it’s 100% vegan made. It’s a polyester fabric made up of thousands of soft microfibers. It’s kind of like fleece, but much softer and thicker. The fabric is super plush, which can make the perfect blanket to cuddle up to while you read a book, watch a movie, or drift off to sleep. And because it’s made from polyester, you can get a minky fabric in almost every color imaginable.
Are There Different Types of Minky Fabric?
All minky fabric is made of the same microfiber material, but how it is manufactured can vary. Many manufacturers will add additional texture to their blankets, which will affect the smoothness of the fabric. Other variations include printed fabrics, which takes away some of the plushness in favor of an intricate design.
Different Kinds of Minky Fabric
Because minky fabric is synthetically made, blankets can be any kind of texture your brain can imagine! But some types are much more common than others, including:
