What is minky fabric? It’s a fair question since this specific type of fabric goes by a few different names, making this a point of confusion for even seasoned sewists.
Minky fabric, also known as microfiber fabric or plush fabric, is a super-soft synthetic fabric made from 100% polyester fibers that are knitted into varying weights and pile heights.
But what does this mean in plain English? If you’ve ever felt a plush fur-like throw blanket or stuffed animal, chances are it’s minky.
Sure, we’re admittedly a little biased here at Shannon Fabrics, but minky is truly one of the must-feel fabrics out there.
