What shoppers are saying

As Amazon Canada’s no. 1 best seller in women’s fleece jackets, sales of this sherpa sweater have surged 3,800 per cent in the past week. It’s also earned a 4.3-star rating, with a warm and comfortable design that’s perfect for winter.

“The photos in the listing don't do this sweater justice! This sweater looks and feels amazing in person,” one reviewer wrote about their purchase. “The size is perfect and the stitching is excellent. The front pockets are separate but deep. There is a zipper on the front, which goes down to about mid-chest and zips right up to the top. My wife lives in this now.”

Shoppers are also a fan of this sweater’s low maintenance design, which can easily be machine washed and tumble dried.

“This sherpa sweater is super soft and ultra comfortable. I really enjoy how it feels and the colour is amazing,” another shopper shared. “It looks fantastic and is made of excellent quality materials, I have already washed it a few times and it’s still like new.”

While the exterior of this sweater is a soft sherpa material, shoppers have noted that its interior is not quite as plush. If you run warm this is a definite plus, but if you’re after a sweater that provides a soft interior, you may want to shop around for an alternative.

The verdict

At $40, this plush sweater makes a great choice for any cold-weather outfit. It pairs well with jeans, sweats, and leggings alike, so you’re sure to get plenty of use out of it this season no matter where you’re headed.
