So I have 2 1/2 yards of shannon lavender minky for sale bought from fabric.com. I'll sell it for the price of 2 yards since I got the 1/2 free since it was the end of the bolt. So $26 + shipping? I bought it for big Twilight's makeover, but looks like I actually need minky boutiques slightly differently colored lavender minky. The original color I got for big Twily was from Minky Delight before they closed down. Seems as though MB has their same color selection though. Can anyone confirm this perhaps?

I still have a few other minky colors for sale too though:
1/2 yard of Cuddle 3 Coral -> www.shannonfabrics.com/cuddle-… It's a bit more salmon-y than the picture though.
1 yard of shaggy Light Brown Minky ->www.amazon.com/Faux-Fur-Minky-…  It's about 1.5x the weight of normal minky, so it'd be more to ship though.
~1 yard of what I think is Bubble Gum minky ->www.fabric.com/buy/bf-303/mink… or at least it's pretty close in color. I got it by accident from fabric.com, I ordered Paris Pink but they sent me this instead. It also seems to have a bit longer pile than the other shannon minky, so maybe it's not bubblegum after all. It may be this one: www.fabric.com/buy/es-310/mar-… if the color is off on the image, as its a longer pile. It's not that spa minky as it's only 1 sided. Hmm. Anyway it is for sale if anyone would like it. It's a good color for the hair in Celestia's hair in my opinion, and good for the spa ponies.

Standard post/priority - $5.60
First class parcel (13 oz limit)
- $3.77


1/2 yard (7 oz estimate):

Oh I wonder if that's the same light orange that SpaceVoyager bought a while back?  I bought a couple yards from her because, as you said, it looks pretty much oerfect for AJ and Scoots!

I'm pretty sure that is light orange from this seller and has a 1mm pile: www.etsy.com/listing/120734114…

This one definitely has a longer pile, still a bit shorter than shannons but it's not really noticeable.

I'm 100% sure the orange she bought isn't that orange because I have the swatch too :)  It's defintiely 3mm. She bought it wholesale from a Chinese seller so had to buy 10 yards of it, which is why she was selling it to some people :)  But I was curious if yours was the same since if I use up these two yards I bought from Space and want more, I don't want to have to buy 10 yards of it to get it!

Oh! Yea I think I was confusing hers with fireflytwinkletoes AJ! Oppsie. ^^; Perhaps it may be the same! I know they sell wholesale too. Hmm, I just haven't seen her make an AJ with that color though, her newest one I thought was with pumpkin?

If you'd like I can send you a swatch of it? :3

Yeah the latest AJ was with pumpkin.  I'm not sure if she's made anything with the new orange yet!

If it wouldn't be too much trouble I'd love a swatch!  How was ordering from aliexpress?  I've never tried ordering anything from the site before, but if they have some different and interesting minky colors...

Sure! Long as you don't mind a bit of a wait, I'm rather slow at getting to the post office XD; The seller was fine and sent an extra swatch I requested along with my order 2. We'll see how this return goes. I'm assuming it's like ebay and should only really judge it on a seller by seller basis, but it seems pretty good. I think the sellers don't actually get the funds from your purchase until you successfully receive it and such.

Oh no rush at all! I know that feeling.  I'm always slow to get to the post office too!

Cool, good to know! Of course, now I'm going to want to buy like every single color and see how it differs from the Shannon stuff ^^;

Also I wouldn't bother with any of the fabrics with piles 2mm or shorter. I got a swatch of a 2mm pile fabric and it was pretty meh :/ I'm actually wondering if it was mislabeled and was really 1.5mm or something, because it was super short and pretty meh.

Yea that's kinda how I feel. XD Though shannons still feels nicer, so I only really care about the more obscure colors. So the return is still going through, but I think they are just going to refund me $8 and let me keep the fabric. I could return the fabric but I'd probably only get like $4 after I take out the shipping costs. ^^; So I'd probably recommend trying to get a handful of swatches. It seems they don't mind sending them if you buy something else with it.

Hey I bought an orangey color for AJ from that seller too and I actually don't like the texture of it at all. It's 1mm pile which could explain that I guess but it just feels rough and bleh. Definitely not as soft as shannon so I'm just going to stick with mango. I'd rather have it be baby soft than have the perfect color lol
