What is Minky?
Minky is a 100% polyester, hypoallergenic material. Minky has a buttery-soft feel, which makes it the perfect material for blankets!
How do I care for my blanket?
Machine wash your blanket with like colors and tumble dry on low. Do not use fabric softeners. Do not iron. Your blanket is fade and stain resistant and will wash up beautifully, time and time again.
I have small pieces that look like plastic on my blanket where it was embroidered; what is this?
A water-soluble stabilizer is used when stitching embroidery work on Minky. While I do my best to remove most of this, you may need to wash your blanket to dissolve the remaining stabilizer. Resist the urge to pick at these pieces as you may pull a thread!
The name on my blanket is spelled incorrectly; can you fix this?
Unfortunately, embroidery work cannot be removed once it is stitched. Please triple check spellings when you submit your order.
How long will it be until I receive my blanket?
Production times can fluctuate. Upon checkout, you will be given an estimate of the current turnaround time. Please remember that this is the time for production and you must add an additional 2-5 days for shipping.
Why do you ask for the date needed at checkout?
By providing me with a date, I will do my best to help accommodate your request. For example, if you need a blanket in 2 weeks and my current posted turnaround time is 2-3 weeks I should be able to assist in this situation. If you need your order quickly, please consider placing a RUSH. A RUSH is the only way I can guarantee delivery within a short period of time. However, I do understand that not all moms are 6 weeks ahead on ordering gifts. Once your order is received I will let you know if I am UNABLE to meet your request.
I have a baby shower next week; can I get a blanket?
Please contact me ahead of time for confirmation on all RUSH orders. I will need to confirm that I have the fabrics and that I am able to accommodate your request. I have hundreds of yards of fabric on hand so this is normally not a problem. RUSH orders will be shipped out within 3 business days and will be sent priority mail. There is a $25 charge for all RUSH orders. You may also want to consider purchasing a gift certificate.
Why do you charge a RUSH fee?
In addition to making beautiful blankets, I am also a chef, maid, chauffeur, and personal shopper to my five children and husband. I try to keep my work hours to scheduled days and times during the week so that I can be with my family in the evenings and on weekends.
How will my order be shipped?
The Minky Moon uses the US Postal Service for all orders. A tracking number will be sent to you via email once your order has been shipped.
I am sending this as a gift; can you wrap my blanket?
All blankets are sent tied with a lovely ribbon and are perfect for gifting just as they are. I am also happy to include a gift note if requested at checkout.
I know a very ill child who would love a blanket. Do you ever donate blankets?
The Minky Moon proudly supports Project Linus. Most children receive a Project Linus blanket through a local hospital, shelter, or other agency. If you know a child in crisis who will not likely get a Project Linus blanket from one of these facilities, please visit the Chapters page on the Project Linus website to locate contact information for the Project Linus chapter closest to the child’s location. www.projectlinus.org.
