What is minky exactly?
Minky is a special type of plush fabric that is often used to make baby blankets, baby clothing and baby accessories. Minky fabric is like fleece – but softer and thicker. The high quality of minky fabric prevents its colors from fading and its warmth from decreasing over time.
Can I choose any combination I want?
Yes! We have two rules at Minky Couture – give our customers the softest blanket they’ve ever felt and give our customers a blanket that fits their style and size. To choose the perfect blanket for yourself today, simply go to our custom blankets page and follow these simple steps.
Choose the print side – Choose from our ever growing list of patterns. Look through our pictures to see what pattern fits your style best. Go wild with our zebra (Shannon) or giraffe pattern (Brian) or go for a classier look with TIfani, Sherry, Navi, Collette, or Brooke.
Choose the solid side – Choose what color you want the plush material that warms you up to be - purple, light blue, navy and more.
Choose the ruffle – Choose the color you want your ruffle to be - outline it with a silky flare that matches the rest of your blanket or choose one that’s completely different – it’s up to you!
Choose the size – Choose from mini, infant (36 x 30), tween (36 x 50), adult (50 x 60), or monster (60 x 72). We always recommend going bigger – more plush blanket to wrap up in, but of course, it’s up to you!

How do I wash and take care of my minky blanket without having it lose its plush feel?
Minkys are specially made to be durable enough for the washing machine. Not only do they wash easily, but they also come out just as soft as they were the first time you felt them. No one likes a blanket that loses its special soft touch after one wash. In fact, most of us avoid washing soft things because we’re afraid the days of having a soft blanket, sweatshirt, or pillow will end once we clean them. We don’t want this to happen to you. We know toddlers will drag them along the ground, 6 year olds will take them out for a picnic, and the rest of us will wrap up in them every time we want to relax. We planned for this. We also know what a pain it is to have to take anything to the dry cleaners. Leave the easyily - cleanable design to us, and we’ll leave the "hurry–and–wash–it–before–she–notices–it’s–gone" part to you.Tumble dry on low or hang to dry
. Do not use fabric softener!
How long will it last?
Our minky blankets are made one at a time and must pass a quality test before they leave our hands and make their way to yours. We do this so that your minky will outlast being drug across the driveway, rolled into a pile of leaves, and sat upon by a teething baby with a stomachache. Your minky will last forever, just wash it to keep it clean and you won’t have any problems. While we can tell you about the quality of our blankets, we can’t promise that your 5 year old won’t want a bigger one when he’s 18- that’s your department.
Do you make things besides blankets?
Yes! We now offer fitted crib sheets and minky pillows!
