How Soft Blankets Are Made

These days, many blanket manufacturers and distributors prefer minky blankets because of their high quality and soft texture. Minky is a type of fleece fabric that is perfect for keeping you warm and comfy. It is made completely from either polyester microfibers or fibers which allow for a great variety in texture and color. When it was first introduced to the market, it was predominantly used in baby products, simply because they were soft, durable, and warm. With so many blanket options today, it is important to find a brand that truly cares about value for money and top-notch quality. When you choose the right soft blanket for you or your loved one, you will find that you will be able to enjoy a product that will stand the test of time. 


Minky fabric is special because it is usually made up of longer fibers or low pile fibers that can be fashioned into a particular type of pattern or texture on the surface. However, different types of minky fabric can boast different textural attributes. For example, Sherpa Minky resembles the kind of fleece that is weaved into the linings of clothing to keep Sherpas warm. This kind of fleece is known for its one-of-a-kind softness. On the other hand, Minky fawn, seal, bobcat, etc have a longer pile that is typically used to resemble real animal fur. 


A factor that affects the feel and quality of a soft blanket is the pile length. While longer fibers help to make the blankets warmer by trapping more air, shorter pile length also means that there is less potential for keeping you warm. When making a soft blanket of the finest quality, it is important to understand that cheap alternatives of fleece might pill in the long run. However, with the right kind of minky, you will find that the structural integrity will hold for years to come. 

How to Make Blankets Soft

When shopping for a good minky fleece blanket, one of the most important factors is the softness of the product. However, customers can all agree that the drawback of fleece blankets is the risk of pilling. This can be caused by the washing or drying of the blankets and might lead to shedding as well. In order to combat this problem, we need to increase the pile of our blankets by brushing them constantly using special brushes that can lift the yarns, which helps to improve the warmth of the blanket.
