    I backed MY throw with it, it is a pain and I didn't go to a lot of trouble since it was just for me but I almost feel like a baby when I crawl under it! The woman( I hope) who invented it needs a BIG gold star!

    I know this is an older post, but Ebay has decent prices on minkee..A few of the stores you can get it for about 7.99/yd..It is hard to work with though..I used it to make a backing for a baby blanket (top is flannel)..It's just such a yummy fabric!

    Campion, this minkey is what all the dressing gowns are currently being made out of in the U.K., I bought a couple from Primark and Matalan have them too, very silky like fur almost, hopes this helps :D

    yes, it is hard to sew with! I have used it three times, as squares in my son's quilt and backing for crib quilts. It sheds like the dickens and is very slippery, but worth the effort when the quilt is complete!

    I used Minkee for backing on a couple of baby quilts. Its soft and snuggly but, man, it was a pain to quilt. It kept slipping and sliding in the machine. Much as I liked the feel of it, I wouldn't use it again.

    I used some small pieces of Minkee in a baby quilt that I hand quilted. I found it much harder to quilt through then other material, but the feel of it is great.
