What is Sherpa fleece?

Inspired by the traditional fleece-lined garments of Tibetan Sherpa, Sherpa fleece has become a versatile fabrication for modern outerwear.

Typically made from synthetic fibres, such as polyester, Sherpa fleece mimics the softness and insulating properties of natural wool with the addition of comfort and durability. In recent years, Sherpa fleece has become a go-to fabric for winter outwear thanks to its ability to insulate while also remaining lightweight and breathable.

How to clean Sherpa fleece jackets

Cleaning Sherpa fleece requires gentle care to maintain its plush texture and insulating properties, so be sure to start by checking the care label for specific cleaning instructions. 

To maintain softness, it’s best to hand wash your Sherpa fleece garments in cold water with a mild detergent or machine wash on a gentle cycle. Avoid harsh chemicals and high heat, as they can damage and shrink the fibres. To keep your jacket feeling as fluffy as its first wear, it is recommended to air dry your Sherpa fleece flat.
