What is a Sherpa Fleece Blanket?
Sherpa is a synthetic heavyweight fabric that takes it name from the Sherpa people of Nepal who wear wool lined clothing. It is fluffy and resembles a shaggy carpet.
Fleece is defined as the woolly covering of a sheep or goat. Most people recognize fleece.
Sherpa fleece is made from polyester, but is almost like 2 distinct fabrics sewn together. One side is smooth and plush like fleece and the other is shaggy and warm and fluffy like sherpa. The combination makes for an extremely soft and cozy blanket!
My navy blue sherpa fleece throw is reversible. One side is smooth and plush, and the other side is fluffy. It is made from 100% microfiber polyester making it super soft. It comes in a variety of colors, but the navy blue caught my eye. If navy blue is not your color, it is available in a variety of colors including red, grey, green as well as in a few prints. It measures 50″ x 60″ in size but also comes in queen and twin sizes.
What is GSM?
When it comes to the material, you may see it described in terms of GSM which stands for grams per square meter (for measuring its weight). The weight is important depending on your need.
Lightweight material, such as a T-shirt can range from 100-200 GSM. A sweat shirt can range from 200-400 GSM. My sherpa fleece is reversible and has a 220 GSM fleece top and a 280 GSM sherpa bottom.
How To Style A Throw Blanket?
In addition to being the perfect cozy blanket for snuggling and watching TV, you can use it as an inexpensive way to change your decor:
- Place it over a chair or sofa for accent
- Throw it over your bed as a duvet cover
