We are Anikó and Edina from Budapest.
We prepare high quality, labeled felted baby booties. We use only natural raw materials, the finest Australian merino wool and vegetable tanned goatskin leather.
Each pair of Lambeli shoe is carefully made individually by hand with the greatest attention and loving care, in small quantities. Our “Lambelis” are unique presents to unique children.
Apart from the stock you can see in our Etsy shop, we are happy to create baby booties for you in sizes, shapes and colours of your choice.
We answer your inquiries promptly and accurately, feel free to contact us!

• The reasons, why wool fiber is the best natural material:
• Readily available fabric used by people for thousands of years. Archaeological evidence from statuary found at sites in Iran suggests selection for woolly sheep may have begun around 6000 BC.
• Wool is naturally grown and renewable, as sheep-shearing occurs twice a year.
• Absorbs almost one-third of its own weight in water.
• Wool is water repellent, because of the special waxy coating of fibers.
• Ignites at a higher temperature than cotton and some synthetic fibers. It has a lower rate of flame spread and heat release, a lower heat of combustion and does not melt or drip.
• Wool fabrics have greater bulk than other textiles and they hold air, which causes the fabric to retain heat.
• Wool has a high specific heat coefficient, so it impedes heat transfer in general. This effect has benefited desert peoples, as Bedouins and Tuaregs use wool clothes for insulation.
• Wool is usually specified for garments for firefighters, soldiers, and others in occupations where they are exposed to the likelihood of fire.
• Wool can be recycled because it is readily biodegradable. It can be composted and used as a fertilizer.

• Comfortable – like wearing a second skin
• Breathable – lets the skin breath, as fibers absorb moisture, draw it away from the skin and let it evaporate
• Warm and yet cool – feet will be warm in winter, but also fresh in summer
• Durable – good wear-resistance
• Water repellent – the fibers of wool are naturally covered with a waxy coating
• Naturally fire-retardant - it does not easily burn and felt is capable of self extinguishing the fire. Turkish firemen still use this material as protective clothing.
• Rearly allergenic
• Lightweight
• Naturally stain resistant
• Best for the environment – felt is biodegradable and sustainable, upon decomposition it will break down into soil.
