Owner Sandi Hendry's own grandson was born at just 30 weeks. During this devastating and trying time, Sandi placed a mini-sized minky with her daughter to absorb her scent (along with her love and faith) and then placed this same mini blanket with her small grandson in the incubator. Her grandson began to thrive and grow while snuggling this mini minky with his mother's smell. This increased the awareness for the same need among other NICU families. Sandi was determined to share luxury and comfort to as many NICU families as she could and so, The Heart of Minky program was created. Minky Couture continues our long-standing pledge to donate a mini-size minky blanket each time an adult size blanket is purchased. Read other NICU stories on our blog, Shop our latest styles here!
