Thumbs down Dye Sub on a no pill microfleece blanket-HELP! :)

Has anyone had any experience with a 100% polyester microfleece blanket and sublimation? Can I set my heat press to 380 degrees and press for 60secs? Thank you for any advice/help

I'd appreciate any help with temp, time, and pressure (though my machine is a screw driven pressure thingy).

Default Re: Dye Sub on a no pill microfleece blanket-HELP! :)

fleece blankets made for sublimation carry instructions of 385 degrees for 70 seconds with light pressure. use a lint roller first.

Without knowing who made your blankets, I would test a corner first if possible.
