Oh cuteness! Thanks for sharing!
I like the way organic sherpa feels at first, too!
I just have a hard time with fabrics not getting hard and crunchy after a zillion washes, so I end up getting attached to the ones that stay softer, over time, and I've had bad luck with sherpa and other long-looped-fluffy type fabrics like that, even the long velour, or BKT, etc... The shorter, smoother OV has lasted by far the best in terms of remaining touchably soft over time, so that's what we use!
