I wet felted these versatile boot slippers from Icelandic wool fibre. Icelandic wool is hard wearing and has excellent thermal properties.

I have used indigo blue wool fibre for the inside and purple for the outside.. with a touch of green just for fun . As I work the felt the fibres migrate through, so you can see a purple blush on the inside and slight blue hue on the outer - very pleasing to the eye.

Wool felt slippers keep your feet comfortably at body temperature, they allow your feet to breath. From personal use I find they keep the feet neither hot or cold -they`re just right! Wool felt is naturally dirt & odour repellent - even my husbands slippers have no odour what-so-ever! And they are ALL NATURAL materials - which is a major bonus in my book.

These are very versatile slippers.. you can wear them in 3 different ways depending on how you feel. Up and open, folded down, or fastened up - they all look good. The fastners are lovely wooden toggles & felted cords.

These are a ladies size:
UK 7
European 41

I have hand sewn leather using beeswax coated strong thread (2 strands), which will provide better grip and will also prolong the life of your slipper! The soles are not intended for outdoor use (that said I have padded around the decking in mine to no ill effect). I have used a lovely antique blue coloured leather for the soles, with toe & heel bumpers to further protect both feet & slippers. The soles are a lightweight good quality leather & feel like a second skin, very comfortable.

These are seamless slippers - the fibres are arranged around a resist and felted in one piece. The cuts for the openings are made part way through the felting process, the edges 'heal' as I continue felting giving the nice irregular top edge. At this stage I spend several hours kneeding, rubbing and working the slippers on shoe lasts.

I blanket stitched by hand all the way around the opening with lavender embroidery silk.

If you would like a pair especially made for you in your size / colours please email me :) All newly made slippers are slightly higher priced than previous slippers due to increased materials prices (£58 is the current price). NOTE: If you would like a pair custom made before Christmas please order as soon as possible to avoid possible disapointment.

SHIPPING
If I send these nicely packaged in a (recycled shoe)box the cost will be as shown on the listing. If you would like me to wrap and send them in a padded envelope shipping will be less - please contact me for further details. For all other postage/shipping info please see my policies.

Easy to care for! Leaflet will be provided but heres the basics..
On the very rare occasion that you may wish to wash your felted slippers, gently handwash in handwarm water, with either woolwash or mild shampoo in. Rinse in same temperature water. Short SPIN ONLY in washing machine. Pull them onto your feet while wet to reshape them. Dry naturally. Do not dry them too quickly (i.e. by sitting them over a woodburning stove / cooker) as this may harm the leather soles.
NOT SUITABLE for washing machine/tumble drier! They shouldn't shrink further, but they may well become misshapen and also it would not be good for the fastners or soles.. so please please dont do it.

*** POSTAGE -PLEASE READ ***
I now send all packages valued over £50 GBP via Airsure (where possible) - this service is faster, tracked, fully insured and has delivery confirmation. Airsure is not available for all parts of the world, if you are in one of the countries that I can not use Airsure for I will send via Recorded Delivery, which will also be insured and require a signature upon receipt. I do not profit from postage at all.
