Minky is a type of fabric that is on the outer part of some nappy. The fabric has a soft short pile that resembles the feel of cashmere or a soft fleece.
Minky is not recommended for overnight use because it will sometimes wick moisture from the inside of the nappy if it is saturated for more than four hours. They work wonderfully for daytime use though!
