Naturally, after all my articles about mochi, JoAnn has essentially stopped carrying Pure Plush. I’ve never been able to get plain white, and the colors they did carry were a bit weird (my color sheet is here), so I broke down and ordered some direct from Shenzhen. I got plain white and an arbitrary brown that turned out surprisingly close to JoAnn’s buckskin (pictured at top for comparison).
It isn’t the exact same fabric; JoAnn’s is almost double-sided, with a sparse front-of-regular-minky texture on the back. This stuff is single-sided, with the same backing regular minky has. I haven’t run it through a machine yet, but I think it’s a keeper (aside from the agonizing almost-six-weeks lead time).
Definitely placing an order for a bunch more colors.
