100% POLYESTER Microfleece. 60" wide. Softie fabrics are so soft and smooth. Softie is made from 100% polyester. Softie stays soft through multiple machine washes, never shrinks and is surprisingly durable. Microfleece/Softie/Minky TIPS: Never iron Minky directly. It will ruin the nap and any embossing like dots or dimples in the fabric. Be aware of the nap when cutting, and if you want it to lay a certain way on your finished product you’ll need to cut accordingly. When cutting Minky, use a rotary cutter. You can keep a hand-vacuum nearby for cleaning up and/or shake each piece outside. If the fibers bother you, consider using a painter’s mask while you cut. Minky tends to slip around quite a bit when sewing, so always put the Minky on the bottom when you sew, next to the feed dogs. Use a universal needle size 80/12, longer stitches and a seam allowance of ½ inch. Pin closely, baste or consider using a water soluble glue or tape to help keep the fabric from slipping around while you sew. Minky should wash up great, but test a sample piece first. Wash in cold water and either dry flat or on a cool dryer setting. Minky will not lose its softness, even after repeated washings. Minky will melt, so don’t warm them in the microwave. Minky fabric isn’t fire retardant so use caution around open flames. Sold in continuous half yard increments. On sale while supplies last.
