    I just ordered some Minky from ebay. It was only $7 a yard and it appears to be a regular seller, cuz' they have a store with several kinds of Minky. Just wondering if anyone else had ever ordered it from ebay and if they liked it???? I hope its the really, really soft stuff. I know Joann's carries minky but it's not as soft as some of the ones from the quilt stores.

    Minky actually is a brand name. I can't remember who the manufacturer is, but authentic Minky is incredibly soft. Other manufacturers have come out with their versions of this chenille like fabric. I hope you like the fabric you receive.

    I checked into this a little further. "Minkee" is the brand name, and is manufactured by Benartex. They can copyright the name Minkee, but certainly can not copyright the fabric itself, just like no one has an exclusive on 100% cotton quilting fabric.

    Other manufacturers have produced their versions of Minkee, but have to spell it otherwise, like Minkie, Minky, etc. I have seen these other versions and they too are very soft and cuddly. I don't know if the fabric you bought on E-bay is Benartex's product or not but the other brands seem very nice too, so I would expect that you will be pleased with your order. Please let us know, okay? ;-)

    I got the minky, I really like it. Its definately as soft as any I've seen at the store and the price was awesome. It was $7 a yard and then they combined shipping. Highly recommend them and will use them again.
