This is my second pair of slippers from Jelena. I work from home, wear them literally every day, and I wore out my first pair. I love them. My feet do not regulate heat or cold well and these keep me very comfortable all day, every day.

About

WONDERFUL THINGS

There is something about organic wool, sustainable fashion and innovations in fiber technology that offers so many possibilities
My name is Jelena and I’m a freelance artist who creates animal related works. In 2010, I fell in love with felting as it provides me with an excellent platform for my creativity.
Since I was a child, I have loved drawing and painting which has helped me to translate my talents to the world of organic wool and felt. Currently, I am based in Lithuania and have managed to turn my love of art and felt making into a business that brings joy to many people around the world.
I create animal sculptures by using proven techniques in felting to achieve a lifelike feel that includes a combination of emotions, originality, and reality that helps bring my sculptures to life. My work brings joy to me and those who I have made pet sculptures out of felt. It is a material that offers endless possibilities thanks to its organic wool base. In addition to the many colors, it is also a warm material that feels good when held in the hands.
The felt works of art I create make the perfect gift for birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, or any occasion when you want to give something special to the one you love. I create your pet from photos that you provide through a combination of felt and painting. I use a special barbed felting needle which helps me craft the organic wool until your pet is recreated by my hand.
Over the years, I have created many portraits that are in memory of a beloved pet. This way, you can remember your special pet
I can also create a pair of felt slippers that are made to your exact requirements. They are cozy, comfortable, and they are durable with minimal care needed.
My Promise to You
My sculptures are crafted with high quality materials that are built to last, which means that they not only look superb, but under normal conditions will last for a long time. This means that you’ll receive a work of felt art that is made by hand, offers a lifelike appearance, and is quite durable.
If you are looking for a lifelike portrait of your pet on canvas, a recreation using felt, or a pair of comfy shoes, let me customize your order today so that I can bring the one you love to life through my talents in felt crafting and painting.

With love,
Jelena

Care instructions

Felted wool shoes does not require washing. Wool naturally repels dirt, it is usually sufficient to air felted footwear for odours to disappear.
Wool is breathable, so it is sufficient to leaveyour house shoes in a cool room for the ventilation. If your felt become very dirty it can be simply brushed off with a soapy sponge.
If necessary, it is the best way to wash by hands.
Simply clean the exact dirty place of felt slippers with little wet rag or wipe up easily in warm (not hot!) water with wool detergent.
DO NOT TUMBLE DRY!
