Minky fabric has become a very popular fabric and fast. It’s one of the softest fabrics, it’s easy to work with, and is incredibly warm. With all these great traits, it’s no wonder why it’s so popular for making blankets, the inside of jackets, and anything you’re looking to achieve that ‘faux fur’ look.
Although Minky fabric doesn’t completely resemble a realistic fur-like appearance like actual faux fur does, it still gives that same kind of feel but is a lot more affordable, easier to care for, and a lot more durable. It has a short pile and is incredibly soft, almost similar to cashmere or high-quality chenille. It’s commonly made out of either polyester or cotton and comes in a variety of colors and fun patterns. Especially in children’s clothing, hats, gloves, PJs, or blankets, Minky is incredibly popular and you’ll probably start to notice it in a variety of different pieces when shopping at the mall.
Some of the reasons why Minky fabric is so popular:
It’s extremely durable and can withstand wear and tear
It’s incredibly soft
It is so versatile
It’s unique and fun with different colors and patterns to choose from
