FAQs About Our Plush Minky Blankets

Frequently Asked Questions

What is minky exactly?

Minky is a special type of plush fabric that is 100% polyester and is often used to make baby blankets, baby clothing and baby accessories. Minky fabric is like fleece – but softer and thicker. Our line of Ultra Plush blankets are 100% polyester faux fur fabric. The high quality of our minky fabric prevents its colors from fading and its warmth from decreasing over time.

What is the process after I place my order?
Because your blanket is made with love and care, please allow 7-10 business days for us to fulfill your order.  As soon as you press send, your order is submitted to our Production Facility in Northern Utah. Within 24 hours, it is on our cut list and being prepped for our seamstresses. If you chose to customize your blanket, please allow extra time for your blanket to be made. Custom blankets could take up to 14 business days to ship. Welcome to the Minky Couture family!

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.

Choose the solid side – Choose what color you want the plush material 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 (10" x 18"), infant (30" x 36"), tween (36" x 50"), adult (50" x 60"), monster (60" x 72") or grande (60" x 84"). We always recommend going bigger – more plush blanket to wrap up in, but of course, it’s up to you!  Blanket sizing is approximate and the measurements shown are the pre-sewn/cut measurements.

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 easy clean design to us, and we’ll leave the "hurry–and–wash–it–before–she–notices–it’s–gone" part to you. Machine wash cold with detergent, but NO Fabric Softener!  Tumble Dry on Extra Low or Air Fluff Only.  If you would rather not use the dryer you can hang to dry.  Remember - do not use fabric softener!

How long will my blanket 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 dragged across the driveway, rolled into a pile of leaves, and sat upon by a teething baby with a stomachache. Your minky will last, 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.

How long will it take for my blanket to ship?

It will take 7 to 10 business days to ship, we then ship USPS or UPS (Standard 3-5 Day).  If it is a custom order and needs embroidery then it will take longer due to the custom options.  During busy times like Christmas it might take longer, so make sure you order in plenty of time for your blanket to get to you!  We take pride in our product and every stitch is made with a bit of Minky Love!!
