Yup, that's it! It's incrediby soft, and it's wonderful for the back of baby quilts. It's widely sold where I live--don't know about where you are.

It's sooo much softer than fleece- like silk and almost liquid, like pudding. It feels so neat! My grandson would take his blanket and rub his face in it. His bumper pads on the crib are minkee and he would pull it down like a pillow and lay on it.

Minkee is almost like petting the softest rabbit or thick-furred cat you can imagine! It's hard to stop touching it! LOL

Yes minke feels like mink, It is so soft and cool to touch. Some of it is smooth, some has little dots in it. Goes together with flannel very well.

It's wonderful feeling stuff!
I had a little piece, but Courtney made a little pillow out of it. I could have sent that off to you so you could just enjoy the feel of it.
