Rated 3 out of 5 by MinkyMeal Good color and nap, but not as thick as I would like
I like this Minky Llama. I ordered a swatch to see if I could use it for a minky/sherpa blanket, but sadly this won't do the trick. The problem is the shag is too thin. Each bunch is nice and soft as well as thick, but the structure underneath the nap showed through too much. When just sitting there, the fabric was thick, but when you run your hand over it, the unsightly infrastructure of fabric becomes visible. It gives a sense of cheapness that isn't due a minky (no google it's not kinky stop autocorrecting me) fabric.
Overall, I recommend this fabric but only with a meek thumbs-kinda-up. I won't be ordering the full amount of this for my blanket.
(Speaking of which, why oh why aren't there any navy-ivory minky/sherpa blankets out there ready to purchase?!?! Grr)
