Maybe you are thinking of minky? Though I don't think that all fabric stores call it that.

Fleece works well and its fairly cheap and very versatile and doesnt wrinkle easily

Hello,
I think i've only posted here once or twice-nearly two years ago! I have started lurking again and plan to do a new "intro" in the next few days or so when i've a few examples together of where i'm at....but wanted to jump in here.

I think your right Steph, The soft material (usually with raised dots or super soft swirls or lines ) is Minky-that is what its called at fabric stores too. Unless on sale usually runs about 12/yrd. We use fleece for our set ups usually though, and have some long shaggy kind of material we picked up at Joann's for newborn shots...but for the life of me i've forgotten what its called!

I hope to participate here more often over the year on a friends camera as much as possible as we will be in Iraq and i'm selling my camera before I go....luckily my bf and fellow shutterbug/pg.org(er) will have her "back Up" camera with us to try not to get to rusty.

I suggest just going to your local fabric store or Walmart if there isn't one around. I sew as another hobby and have found some great fabrics for cheap if you just look around. Those places normally have great scrap sections, but scraps may not be big enough for this use.

I agree with PPs, you may be talking about minky. The fabric that some companies use to make baby blankets? You could just buy a nice soft baby blanket. I don't have any advice as to how much you'll need. Never done a newborn shoot or even little baby shoot. They're are SOO many options out there. GL and can't wait to see what you find!

Jo-Anns calls it "cuddle" fabric - it's in the baby section

a faux sheepskin or something similar would also be good. Target seems to sell funky kids' bedroom stuff and might have a fluffy rug or throw that would work too....
