Which photo blanket is best?
Fleece photo blankets are my personal favorite.
Fleece is a type of fabric that is soft, fluffy, and lightweight. It is made from polyester fiber that is spun into a fleece backing.
The fleece backing makes the fabric more durable and but more likely to pill.
Fleece is also available in a variety of colors and patterns.
Sherpa photo blankets are also a good choice.
Sherpa is a type of material that is made from wool or synthetic fibers. It has a smooth, fuzzy surface that feels like suede.
Sherpa is also available in a variety of colors and patterns.
Minki photo blankets are another good choice. Minki is a type of material that is made from synthetic fibers.
It has a short, dense pile that is soft to the touch. Minki is also available in a variety of colors and patterns.
So, which photo blanket is best? fleece, sherpa, or minki? All three fabrics are great choices for photo blankets!
How much does it cost to make a photo blanket?
