About

Wooppers - cosy feet, warmer life!

Hi, I'm Chryssa,

My love affair with Wool started in 2011. Prior to that, I was working for 15 years designing industrial glassware in the UK and Greece but I was missing a more direct, “hands on” approach to design so I decided to take a turn.
My research into wool in Greece brought me in contact with this amazing material and gradually drew me in. I got into making all kind of projects but as winter came, my cold feet sent me to the direction of footwear. Making slippers and giving it away to friends again and again until I master the technique brought the idea of my new product; Wooppers! My own WOOlen sliPPERS!
Wooppers got registered and my web e-shop opened in October 2013. Since then I have trained two more master felters and have familiarized the Greek customers with this most amazing shoe.
From my studio in Athens me and my skilled friends Dimitri and Chryssa make wooppers to appeal to your senses. We present Wooppers to you and trust that you will love them as much as we do!

FACTS and BENEFITS of wearing Wooppers:
* Wooppers are soft and embrace your feet in a very snug and pleasant way.
* Wooppers are tightly felted and they keep their shape.
* Natural or dyed lamb’s wool or merino wool or organic mountain sheep wool is rubbed with organic soap and water until the microscopic barbs on the wool’s surface hook together forming the material; felt.
* No chemicals are used. The process is added only by water and olive oil soap.
* Felted slippers especially the ones without soles are insulating, keeping your feet warm on cold days and comfortable on warm ones.
* Wool absorbs humidity, up to 30% of its own weight, thus keeping your feet dry and pleasant. Your slippers will never smell badly and your feet will feel healthy.
* The direct contact of wool fibers with skin has a soothing and massaging effect.
* Tightly felted wool repels dirt.

Frequently asked questions

How long do Wooppers without soles last?

There is definitely no clear answer to this question. The reason is that a lot depends on the way you walk and the surfaces you walk on.
Wooppers wear at the points of friction. If you notice points of friction on the soles at an early stage do not wait until a hole is created. It will pay off to ask a shoe repairer to add leather patches on those points of friction. The wooppers will last much longer and you will not notice any difference in walking.

Should I buy with or without sole?

There are advantages and disadvantages for each option.
With wooppers no sole your feet are treated in the best natural way. No sweating, no smells of any kind, you can wear them throughout the year. Because they "breath" so well your feet will be naturally warm.
Soles will prolong your woopper's life and have better grip on dry surfaces but the shoe is not breathing on the underside.
Please pay attention: Latex soles can be very slippery if you walk on wet floors.

Is it possible that wearing Wooppers will make my skin itch?

Wooppers are so soft we suggest that you wear them barefoot to feel all the good benefits that pure wool offers. Some people believe they are allergic to wool. This is not because of the wool fiber itself but of old improper practices regarding the treatment of fibers, that make them rougher.
If you feel at any point itchy while wearing wooppers, just look carefully and remove the occasional tiny straw that may be hidden between the fibers of your shoes.

My rubber soles turned sticky! What do I do?

We try to prevent problems so we include instructions for the care of latex with your packaging.

However, latex is a natural product which is sensitive to high temperatures. In a warm summer a closed cupboard can be warmer than 30 degrees Celsius and this may affect the soles. Normally if you treat them with talcum powder or if you walk on dust, the pores will close and you will not feel the stickiness any longer. The latex may become harder but it will become stronger. If the problem is severe you may want to stick leather on the soles. A shoe repairer can easily help with that.

If I live outside of the EU, will I have to pay customs fees?

It is possible that you may have to pay customs import duty fee. Buyers are responsible for these fees, and I cannot estimate what they may be, so you may want to check with your country to see what you may be required to pay.

Gift wrapping and packaging

I gift wrap purchases if requested with no extra charge. Just leave a note on checkout with your greetings text if any. I will include a handwritten card with your text in your box.

Sizing details

Please refer to SIZE under the product description.

Care instructions

It is safe to wash your wooppers in the same way as you do with woolens.
