Minky is a fur-like knit fabric that’s made of 100% polyester (no animals were harmed in the making of these blankets).

Here are our favorite things about minky: 

Since minky fibers are so fine, it’s super soft! With proper care, that softness doesn’t decrease over time so you’ll have years to enjoy it. Who doesn’t love a soft blanket? We’ve never met anyone who doesn't so we can only assume that everyone does. 

Our blankets aren’t weighted but you’ll definitely feel a similar comforting pressure from minky blankets. Our XL throw blankets come in around 9 pounds! That’s slightly more than the average queen size down comforter.

Even though minky is super luxurious, it’s durable and easy to maintain. That means it should last a long time if you make note of a few simple things. Read about it on our minky care page.
