Our Solaron "mink" blankets are manufactured in Republic of Korea and Vietnam. We call them "mink blankets" due to their incredible softness. These are "faux mink" blankets as they are not real mink.
They are made predominately out of acrylic, a synthetic fiber known for it's cashmere-like softness. A small percentage of polyester is added to wrinkle resistance. A typical blend is 85% acrylic and 15% polyester.
All "mink blankets" are not created equal. There are many China manufacture mass producing them, so now they are flooding markets with very low quality blankets. Some of them actually says "Korean Blankets" when they are actually from China.
Please be cautious when you purchase your blankets. Keep that in mind that most of other made in China product will be have the same quality as our products. They are not as thick or soft as ours. Also, most of other blanket designs are not as vibrant as ours. Our blanket designs look vibrant on both sides. However, other cheaper brands, inferior blankets may have a pretty design on the front but not on the back as they have faded colors due to using less acrylic on the back.
Solaron Blankets are machine washable. Our blankets will last a minimum of ten years if you give delicate care. They will not shed, peel or get fuzzy.
When you wash them, please use a mild soap using a gentle wash cycle with as little heat as possible.
Solaron Acrylic mink blankets are know to be one of the finest blankets in the world. Solaron blankets cannot be compared to other cheaper brands for their quality. Please think of these facts when you decide on what to purchase and what you want to present in your store.
