These cozy, handmade slippers keep your toes warm and dry (but never too hot), thanks to the magic of wool. The low back design is easy to slip on, but features just enough of a lip to stay put. Perfect for slipping into something more comfortable between errands and outings, protecting feet from cold tile or hardwood floors, or simply lounging in style.
SERIOUSLY COMFORTABLE SLIPPERS
Wool is a magical material. It’s warm, yet breathable. Moisture-wicking, yet resistant to stains and odour. Durable and rugged, yet super cozy. It’s no wonder people all over the globe have depended on wool products to stay warm, dry — and lookin’ good — for centuries. Synthetic slippers get too hot, leather slippers don’t breathe, socks trap moisture and provide little protection. These wool felted slippers do none of that. Your feet will never be too hot or too cold. Clammy, sweaty feet are a thing of the past.
Cheap, conventional and synthetic slippers come at a big cost to the environment. They wear out, rip, and get stinky or stained. And all those plastic soles and synthetic materials add more plastic to our oceans and landfills. There is a better way. Every pair of these slippers are constructed from 100% natural materials and more importantly, they’re built to last. These slippers are odour and stain resistant, machine washable, timelessly styled, and six times more durable than cotton.

SIZE GUIDE: The size chart includes measurements for the moulds around which the slippers are made. That should give you a good idea of what size you need. Of course, every pair is made by hand so some variances occur.
Get your size right by taking a simple foot measurement. Mark the front of your longest toe and the back of your heel bone on paper, then check the length in the size chart below.
These slippers are designed to be worn without socks.
USE: We've all been there. You forget to sort your laundry and that expensive wool sweater comes out three sizes too small. That's because when you get wool wet and agitate it, the fibres tighten. This process is called "felting". These slippers are made by tightly felting wool around a shoe form. They start out big and floppy and it takes about half a day's work to shrink the wool down to the right size. Once they're felted (e.g. shrunk) they simply can't shrink much more making them safe to wash.
- To freshen up - Vacuum to remove debris. Spot clean by hand with water as needed. Do not scrub.
- To deep clean - machine wash on cold on gentle cycle with mild detergent. Reshape around your foot while still wet, then remove and let air dry. Do not put in dryer.
Light natural shedding will occur as the wool fibres shift around and shape to your foot. Don’t worry — simply remove the excess wool and compost or discard.
The slippers have a suede sole designed primarily for indoor use.
END OF LIFE: All materials are entirely compostable.
