    HI Everyone,

    I am curious?
    yesterday I was in wal-mart and noticed a bolt of fabric that looked like minkee and I read the label and it said "Mock Minkee"...I am wondering if anyone has used this before and how well it washed up?
    I don't usually buy wal-mart fabrics (I don't judge those who do :thumbup: PLease don't attack me for that.) But I am thinking it's all polyester?? So maybe this would be OK? Thanks in advance.

    What is normal minkee made from?

    When I was Shop Hopping last week, one of the Shops had a non-minkee-minkee that they said was every bit as good .... wonder if it's the same stuff?

    I don't even know what that is, so can't help you. I use some WalMart fabrics and I don't take offence if someone else doesn't. It is a matter of what you prefer and what you can afford.

    Did you check the end of the bolt? I haven't seen that at my Wal-Mart yet but I will look next time I go.

    I haven't noticed this. I am using some real Minkee now and it is a dream, but sheds fiercely when cut. BTW, isn't Minkee a registered trademark? Wonder how they can incorporate the name in their product?

    If I remember correctly, the regular Minkee is polyester also, as are most of the fake fur type fabrics.
