Sherpa is one of the hottest trends this year. There's a reason why. Textured clothing made a big comeback this year — think velvet, corduroy, heavy knits. Texture gives clothing a little something extra and gives you one more to play with when you're putting together a new outfit.
Sherpa is one of the best textures for winter. It is so soft, so cozy, and not overly chunky. Sherpa doesn't add extra bulk to an outfit like a puffy jacket or a down coat, but you still get the benefits of being nice and warm.
Sherpa is also fun because you can dress it up or dress it down. Traditionally used in sportier, more athletic or outdoorsy clothing, Sherpa has become more mainstream than ever before.
One reason for sherpa's rise in popularity is that it's a cruelty-free fabric that resembles wool or fur. People who wish to steer clear of animal fabrics can use this cotton, polyester, acrylic fabric as a substitute.
Though you're not likely to find this fabric in a skirt or a dress, sherpa is popular in coats, jackets, cardigans, and sweaters. It's easy to layer with and above all, sherpa is comfortable. When you wash your sherpa clothing, the best way to keep it in pristine condition is by washing it on cold with like colors and tumble drying the item on low. Some sherpa items do need to be hand-washed, so always make sure to read the tag before you throw anything into the washer.
