I bought a sherpa cardigan last year. Can't remember the brand offhand but it was on a deal, still pricey but the hype got me! I like the cardi, warm but not stiffling, short, as am I so it is practical for doing stuff and not just lounging. Not at all flattering and I am built like a short brick shithouse, so I am used to looking a frump lol. So, I will give this a miss, doesn't tick enugh boxes but as cc said, an extra one would have been handy whilest the 1st is in the wash. Hindsight is a wonderful thing.

Errrrr, I sent for the cream check. (I only have a thin cotton dressing gown to take to hospital). Its actually very lightweight and extremely cosy cuddly, my only gripe is you cant do it up, soooooo I have got some invisible (clear) large press studs and will put them on it, thus making it a proper coat, and ideal for wearing out when the weather is not cold enough for a heavier coat. Also ideal for keeping in the car, because yes, I agree its bulky to hang up. This is the trouble with a lot of Cozee home and a lot of this fabric - where do you store it.

I received for Christmas a huge oversized top in this fabric, with stars on - from a local supermarket, and its a bugger to fold up and store. Give it time and it will end up in the charity bag.

I bought it as well, brissles. I went for the blue/white check. I love it. I wasn’t thinking of wearing it outdoors but suppose I could. It’s very lightweight but, unlike the fluffy Cozee wrap I bought last year, which is also light and I was disappointed with, this does keep me nice and warm. It almost seems to generate heat. I agree about it being too open. Even if you have plenty of fabric to spare, it doesn’t stay closed around you when you move about. I thought they should have provided a removable belt but I like your big poppers idea.

I did toy with the idea of putting a couple of long ribbon ties to close it up, but then it WOULD look like a dressing gown or overgrown bed jacket. I've now put 3 spaced out press studs on (that sounds ridiculous !), and its transformed it to be honest. Why these couldn't have been put on in manufacturing is beyond me.

I am currently wearing mine with a dressing gown belt, just to hold it together while I'm on the computer. But it looks absolutely awful!

I bought it too in the dark red animal print. Thought it would be cosy in the house & help keep my back warm ( spinal arthritis). It’s a good idea to sew poppers on it.
Agree about storing, mine’s currently residing on the arm of the sofa being longingly eyed up by the mutts

I cant sew for toffees, but I can thread a need (just about), and its just a case of sewing through the press stud holes - the only brain skill is ensuring they're lined up straight on the jacket. Glad I did it, now I can wear it outside as a coat.
