I wetfelted these versatile boot slippers from Icelandic wool fibre. Icelandic wool is hardwearing and has excellent thermal properties.. it makes excellent slippers.

I have used pumkin orange and gold fibre for these - orange inside and gold outside; during felting the colours migrate into each other, so there is a gorgeous orange blush to the golden outside.. this gives a lovely depth to the colour. I have incorporated Black Wensleydale curly locks into the ankle of these boots for textural embellishment.

These are seamless slippers - the fibres are arranged around a resist and felted in one piece. There is no sewing involved in shaping the slippers, the only sewing takes place afterwards to attach fastners and soles.

The cuts for the openings are made part way through the felting process, the edges 'heal' as I continue felting giving the nice uneven top edge. After felting & drying the slippers I blanket stitched by hand all the way around the opening with a fine rust coloured pure silk yarn.

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

I have handsewn leather soles onto these slippers, using beeswax coated strong thread (2 strands), which will provide better grip making them safer 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 nice mottled brown 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 a ladies size

For other countries its best to measure the length of your feet. Stand on paper & draw around them keeping the pencil close to the edge of your foot - now measure the length at the longest point heel to toe. Felt slippers mould themselves to your foot shape after a couple of days and fit like a second skin - amazingly comfortable! So long as your measurement is close you should be fine (remember if you are a little smaller you may often be wearing socks). Please feel free to email me with your foot measurements if you are unsure.

If you would like a pair especially made for you in your size / colours please email me :) NOTE: If you would like a pair custom made before Christmas please order as soon as possible to avoid possible disapointment.

Wool felt slippers keep your feet comfortably at body temperature, they allows 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 repellant - even my husbands slippers have no odour what-so-ever! And they are ALL NATURAL materials - which is a major bonus in my book.

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 mishapen and also it would not be good for the fastners or soles.. so please please dont do it.
