See what all the fuzz is about: Amazon’s 'incredibly soft' $30 fleece has over 9,000 rave reviews

As a kid, there was nothing more comforting than your favorite stuffed animal. But who says you have to give up snuggling when you grow up? More than 9,300 five-star Amazon reviewers are getting shamelessly cozy with a top-rated Teddy bear fleece that’s bringing out their inner child. “My transformation into a Muppet is proceeding as planned,” declared one fan the Fozzy-inspired Yanekop Sherpa Fleece. It’s the warmest and fuzziest winter sweater you’ll ever find for as little as $30.

Cue the cozy feeling you'll get once you pop this comfy hoodie over your head.

Yes, my friends, the teddy bear fleece trend is alive and well, and it’s heating up as winter temperatures hit an all time low. This Yanekop version is as delicious as it gets, with a soft, plush material that feels just like “wearing a blanket,” as one shopper put it.

It’s got all the trappings of a go-to sweater, including pockets to keep your hands toasty and a hood to throw on when you really feel like bundling up.

Customers are consumed by how warm this fleece keeps them, and they’re refusing to take it off. “This is my fifth one... that should tell you something about how I feel about [the Yanekop Sherpa Fleece],” wrote one. “We have had sub-zero weather here in the Midwest and I hate the weather but love that I have stayed warm through it all!”

“The moment I touched it I was in love, then I put it on and I felt like I was being hugged by a teddy bear,” another admitted.

But let’s be honest: the price of the Yanekop Sherpa Fleece is pretty appealing, too, even when it's not on sale! “I have other sherpa-type hoodies and sweatshirts that I've paid three times as much for. This is such a great deal!” wrote a cost-conscious consumer on the $31 sweater. “I've washed it several times and it is still soft.”

Other shoppers are emphasizing how well the Yanekop fleece fits in addition to how good it feels. “It's soooo comfy and fits really well,” one fan wrote. “I think it's true to size and just the right size that whether you're having a skinny month or a bloated month, it will still fit well. It's so incredibly soft that it blows my mind, and seems to be of good quality.”

Others report that it’s well-made and washes well with no shrinkage or shedding.

The Yanekop Sherpa Fleece comes in more than a dozen colors and patterns, including khaki and brown — very true to Teddy bear fashion. Reviewers also love it in pink, with one calling it “such a pretty pink. It is more vibrant than it looks in my picture.”

Other popular looks are a cotton-candy tie-dye, black-and-white plaid, periwinkle blue as well as more neutral gray or black. You can't go wrong with whichever one (or two) you choose.

This camo version of the comfiest hoodie on earth is the perfect neutral — you can wear it with jeans, leggings or sweats.
