AS the temperature starts to drop outside, there's no better time to cosy up under a super-soft blanket, whether you're watching TV on the sofa or curled up in bed.

The best sherpa fleece blankets and throws offer up wool-like warmth and comfort for an affordable price - plus, you can save money on your heating bills too.

Sherpa fabric is 100% synthetic - often made from cotton and polyester with other synthetic fibres.

Sherpa fleece imitates the properties of lambs wool and sheepskin so it's soft, fluffy and insulating but is less expensive and easier to maintain as it's usually machine-washable too.

The fabric is named after the sherpa people from the mountainous regions of Nepal, who would wear traditional clothing lined with wool to protect them from the freezing conditions.

Sherpa fleece is often referred to as 'faux sheepskin' and it works best when it's used as a lining with an outer layer of another fabric to help keep the warmth in.

It's a different material to what we know as just 'fleece', which is another synthetic material made from polyester - sherpa fleece is usually softer and warmer.
