SHERPA JACKETS EXPLAINED
When it comes to looking cool while staying warm, sherpa jackets rule the day. We love sherpa jackets in their many variations, beginning with the original Sherpa Trucker Jacket, all the way to the All-Over Sherpa, a jacket covered inside and out in plush faux shearling.
To back up, let’s learn a bit about sherpa and what makes it so special.
What Is Sherpa?
Sherpa lining refers to that cozy fuzz you see peeking out of the necks of many a jacket in cooler months. A sherpa jacket has it all: A protective outer layer (denim, corduroy, you name it), button front, plenty of pockets and a cozy, supersoft fabric lining. The perfect transitional piece, sherpa jackets offer protection from cooler temps without going wild in the weather-proofing department and are great for layering up as temps start dropping.
What Are Sherpa Jackets Made Of?
Originally made of sheep’s wool, our modernized take on sherpa is made of lightweight cotton or recycled polyester, boasting a nice deep pile and little fleece fuzzies that gives it it’s beloved texture. This modern sherpa lining has a much lighter weight, is less bulky and dries much faster than its predecessor. It’s that extra cozy layer everyone needs to make it through the chillier months.
