I haven't heard of swirl, is that different from gelato?

I tend to get my minkee from nappiesbyminki

yeah, it is different from gelato. The minky swirl has longer pill and the pill is placed in at different angles to make a swirled texture rather than a straight smooth fabric.
I haven't ever seen any in the uk.

i know. gorgeous aint they? i want some for some blankets. thought the one i linked to would look great backed onto chocolate and khaki camoflauge with co-ordinating taggy ribbons. unfortunatly it will cost too much to ship it over to make it a viable option. (pooh) :cry:

maybe you could try get a few other people in on an order and share the cost of shipping? :wink:
