The allure of animal print fashion takes center stage this year. The different variations of faux furs and prints continue to evolve and pleasantly surprise us with quality and beauty.

Created by Tahki Yarns, Sherpa yarn, is a lofty wool-alpaca blend offered in natural. It was created to invoke the look of an animal print with a soft, heavenly feel on the body. Sherpa yarn is just one of the Tahki Yarns developed with very distinctive specifications to create unique fibers in the marketplace.

The "Sherpa Winter Vest" is versatile and can be worn as an outer garment as well as a layering piece. Its relaxed fit offers real comfort, and it has become the perfect cold weather wardrobe piece for this season.

String Yarns Sherpa Vest

Creating a garment with Sherpa is a sophisticated and subtle way to play with this season’s fur craze. Wear the collar high or turn down to create a lapel. Be sure to keep the rest of the outfit simple - pants/leggings, longer shirt, Sherpa vest, with a great pair of boots and you’re out into the cold looking chic and cozy warm.

This weekly only, get the "Sherpa Winter Vest" 15% OFF.
