What do you think of these!! I love them!! They’re great and warm, made out of 100% pure woollen natural colour felt. It looks and feels like felt, but it isn’t. Below I explain how this fabric is made. Traditionally these home slippers were used to put in wooden clogs, to keep feet warm and dry in the rainy northern provinces of Spain, Asturias and Cantabria. After “updating” the design to this cheerful, mythological look, maintaining the original fabric and idea, these slippers/booties are excellent to keep your feet warm in winter and cool in summer.

So let’s see the features of these gorgeous woollen booties:

* Handmade out of 100% traditional woollen felted woven fabric**
* Wool is an excellent insulation material. It lets your feet breath and keeps them at an ideal temperature.
* Its made of un-dyed wool, except for the orange accents.
* They can be adjusted with the woollen chord and the wooden button.
* The wooden button is a piece of driftwood which I collect myself on the beach. They are all different!
* The sole is protected with layers of natural latex, so they won’t be slippery, protect your slipper against wearing and getting wet.
* They’re made in several sizes (see below)


** Let me explain the process of making this fabric, because it’s quite special and there are only a few craftsmen left:
After the whole process of washing, carding and spinning the wool, a woven fabric is made but the fibres of its fabric are loose, airy and unmeshed. To obtain a better structure of the wool and to remove the last rests of grease the woven is taken to the fuller-mill. Normally it’s a watermill, because water is also necessary in the fulling process. In these fuller mills, the cloth is beaten with wooden hammers, known as fulling stocks or fulling hammers. The fulling process intends to consolidate and thicken the structure of the fabric by knitting the fibres together more thoroughly and by shrinking them, which transforms the cloth from a loose 'net' of threads into a compact, tight, textural whole. The amount of fulling required for a particular cloth is part of the skill of the fuller. It depends on the type of wool, the type of water, the cloth texture, the temperature of the water and the time allowed under the fulling stocks. Care is needed to ensure the whole cloth receives an equal, consistent beating, and the fuller has to be skilled enough to know when the cloth has been fulled sufficiently. Any lack of attention could lead to holes in the fabric or felt it all together, ruining a whole bolt of cloth.

Sizes:
I make these slippers for the following shoe-sizes. They are supposed to be roomy, so your feet will relax completely. The European sizes have been checked. THE SAFEST WAY, however, IS TO GIVE ME YOUR FOOTLENGTH IN CM or INCHES (see instructions below)

European Foot length in cm.
.
35-36 22-23 cm
37-38 23-24 cm
39-40 24,5-26 cm
41-42 26-27 cm
43-44 27-28 cm
45-46 28-29,5 cm

The best way for me to determine your size is to measure your foot:
1. Put a piece of paper on the ground
2. Put your foot on the piece of paper
3. Take a pencil or a pen and put it vertically on the paper, with one if the sides touching your foot.
4. Draw your foot on the paper.
5. Now measure the drawing of your foot from the heel to the tip of your big toe, but in a straight line!! Don’t measure it diagonally.
