Our Story

At Minky Mamas, who we are and what we do are one and the same. We seek to deliver comfort and warmth, not only through our Minky blankets themselves but also through the meaningful connections they create.

The Journey of Minky Mamas

Blankets have always meant love in our family. Mom would put blankets on us when we slept, and as we moved away, she would make each of us a blanket so we could get a hug from home whenever we were homesick. When we discovered Minky fabric over 12 years ago, the softness of the material matched the love in our stitches. We’re passionate about being able to spread that love to our family, and our Minky family that we have come to know through our blankets.

Our Mission

We believe that a blanket is a perfect symbol of comfort and love. There’s a bit of love behind every stitch and in every inch of unbelievably soft fabric. From the memories of the first blankets we ever loved to the ones we cozy up with today, we want to make sure your Minky memories are unforgettable. We create forever connections through our blankets!

A Blanket for everyone

Everyone remembers their favorite blanket growing up. Maybe it was the one you curled up with on the couch with a loved one. Maybe it’s the one your mom brought out of the cupboard when you were sick and needed a little extra comfort. From the tattered heirlooms to the brand new baby throws, a blanket is more than just a cut of fabric. Our purpose is rooted in the idea that a great blanket provides comfort and happiness. Our custom blankets warm the heart, calm the soul, and provide lasting feelings of security and bliss. We envision a Minky Mamas blanket in every home, and that’s why we continue to make every blanket from a place of love.

Friends, Family, Community

Throughout our journey to create the Minky Mamas you know and love today, we’ve involved our friends, family, and community in our process. We wanted to spread the joy of our blankets, but we couldn’t do it alone. That’s why we reached out to the talented seamstresses around us. By involving our community, we’re able to widen the Minky Mamas reach. We continue to make the highest-quality blankets while supporting our local economy, as well as the daughters, mothers, and grandmothers of the great Beehive State. Every Minky Mamas blanket is made with kindness, patience, and remarkable skill. Together we create a patchwork blanket of friendship, entrepreneurship, and opportunity.


“Seriously some of the best blankets out there! The shows are fun and the ladies who do the shows are so kind, caring, and put a lot of love into what they do. These blankets have legitimately changed my life. As someone who suffers from insomnia these blankets have allowed me to sleep through the night for the first time in years! Love the blankets and love the company! “

Kerrie Maleski

“Even softer than they look! I thought the blankets looked great, but I was amazed at how much I love them. These multi-textured wonders are fabulous to feel, cozy to cuddling under, and are well made. I love mine and will be buying at least 3 more, so my kids stop fighting over mine. :)”

Each item is carefully designed and sewn, triple inspected, and quickly shipped. If there is ever an issue, (extremely rare, but no one’s perfect) Minky Mama customer service is spot on. I am a complete believer in their genuine, heart felt passion for their one of a kind, buttery soft, cloud of heaven, patchwork blankets. You have to experience it to understand it.”

They are amazing! They are a mommy daughter team who create beautiful works of art. They are so kind to their customers and always try to create something you and your family will cherish. I love my Blossom throw I got from them. I will always recommend them. Lis and Sue are so so kind. It’s a family business and they make you feel apart of the family.
