The Sherpa Story: From the Himalayas to Your Closet
Sherpa fabric has its history and origins in the Himalayan region, where the Sherpa people have used wool of their native sheep to create clothing. Known for its soft texture yet exceptional warmth, Sherpa wool became a material used around the world. Fast forward to the men’s fashion of today, and Sherpa has evolved and been innovated into a synthetic alternative that still showcases the essence of the traditional fabric while offering modern functionality in updated styles.

Caring for Your Sherpa Hoodies & Jackets: Tips and Tricks
Preserving the quality, softness, and look of Sherpa fabric requires a bit of TLC. Here are some essential tips to keep your Sherpa jackets and hoodies in great condition:
Machine Wash with Care: Turn your Sherpa items inside out and use a gentle cycle with cold water to maintain the fabric's integrity.
Avoid Heat: Skip the dryer and let your Sherpa pieces air dry to prevent any potential damage from excessive heat. Or even better, just dry clean it.
Brush Gently: Use a soft-bristle brush to fluff up the Sherpa lining and maintain its plush texture. We got our soft bristle brush off Amazon for under $10.
Spot Clean: If you’re a bit messy like us, stains or spills can happen. Taking care of it promptly by spot cleaning with a mild detergent or a mixture of water and vinegar will do the trick. Let is air dry, too!
Storage Matters: When not in use, store your Sherpa jackets and hoodies in a cool, dry place to prevent any moisture-related issues. We like container bins or garment bags.
