The new Sherpa Sweatshirt comes in two materials: merino wool or a recycled polyester/hemp blend.
The merino wool is an exciting new fabric we sourced from Japan. It has a knit cotton backing with soft luxurious merino wool sherpa on top (so fluffy!). It feels lightweight but is very warm. The warmth comes from the thermal quality of the wooly fleece top layer. Only comes in natural, hand wash and lay flat to dry. Since the fabric needs to be sourced from Japan timelines for this piece are a bit longer. Made to order, expect wool items to be shipped 15 business days from order.
The recycled polyester/hemp blend is made with a sustainable 80% recycled polyester and 20% hemp. This cozy will get softer with wear. It comes in natural and black. Machine washable in cool water and lay flat to dry. Made to order, 10-15 days for before an item is shipped.
The fit for the sweatshirt is the same for both materials. It's oversized for maximum coziness, you'll reach for it every day (we do!). If you prefer a less oversized fit you may want to size down, please reach out if you're unsure!
