Sherpa can be made from polyester, acrylic, or cotton and is sometimes called ‘faux shearling,’ named for its resemblance to the wool-lined clothing worn by the Sherpa people of Nepal. Sherpa mimics the bumpy texture of sheep’s wool. Our Sherpa is 100% cotton and does resemble a wooly look on one side and cotton knit on the other. It is soft and very cuddly.
Wash in warm or hot water with mild liquid detergent. No fabric softeners – they clog the ‘wooly’ fibers. Wash with other cottons and machine dry on low.
