FIBRE AND MATERIAL INFO
Sherpa fleece is a heavyweight and fluffy knit fabric, napped with a sheep-like fluffy pile on one side and smooth knit fabric on the other side. It is named after the Sherpa people of Nepal, as the Sherpa fabric resembles the wool lined clothing worn by the tribe. However, contrary to what the Sherpa people wear, the fabric is not made of wool.

Tips to work with sherpa fabric:

– Avoid Ironing. It will crush the fluffy pile and you might even melt the fabric. If you need to apply fusible interfacing, use a pressing cloth.
– Your standard machine foot may have trouble sewing through multiple layers of fabric. A walking foot will allow your machine to pull the fabric evenly through the feed dogs, which will make it easier to sew this thick, fluffy fabric.
– Make sure your scissors are sharp and cut in one layer if it’s too thick.
– Cut pattern pieces in the same direction to avoid difference in the nap.
– Use jersey or ballpoint needles and stretch stitches when sewing your garment.
– Use clips instead of pins – pins will hide in the nap and will be difficult to see them (and remove them).
– Sherpa fleece is known to shed a lot during the sewing process, so we recommed to finish all raw edges right after you cut them.

 

CARE INSTRUCTIONS
We recommend to always pre-wash (and dry) your fabric the same way you intend to wash your finished garment. Overlock or zigzag raw edges before wash to avoid fraying.

2-5% shrinkage must be expected.

  • Don’t wash fabric in a laundry bag (!), and wash large pieces of fabric alone in the machine
  • Machine wash at max 40 dg.
  • Hang to dry or lay flat
  • No tumble dryer
  • Iron on low to medium setting

Mind the MAKER Sue Sherpa Fleece, Sienna

Mind the MAKER is a fabric manufacturer and wholesaler founded in 2018 by fabric lovers on a mission to serve high-quality fabrics with the maker in mind.

We mind the MAKER when we design and develop our collections.

We present a range of high-quality basic collections that will always work, and a range of prints and fashion-based collections that are more likely to come and go.

We are based in Denmark and we offer our fabric collections to fabric shops and designers, mostly in Europa, but we do also have customers from Mindother parts of the world.”

The vision of mind the MAKER is to design and produce fabric with care.
Fabric must be thought of as more than a fast consumer product. It should be thought of as product you buy and use with the people who made it, the environment, yourself and the overall imprint throughout the product life cycle in mind.

The collections are based on responsibly produced fibers such as GOTS® certified organic cotton and ECOVERO ™ Viscose, and range from from basic collections to more special weaves and knitted qualities, as well as printed collections.

The color scale is designed to match across all collections and qualities, which makes it easy, for example, to find matching rib for a sweater or fabric for trousers to match a viscose shirt.

Besides the Mind the MAKER Sue Sherpa Fleece, Sienna, you can find their other fabrics here Mind the Maker’s fabrics.
