Felted Wool Ladies’ House Shoes (Slippers)
I ethically source and use only the softest 100% Australian or NZ wool for these felted wool shoes. Being a natural fibre, the wool allows your skin to breathe and the shoes will gently mould to your feet with wear. You can rest assured no toxins have gone into making these beautiful, Australian handmade shoes.
These felted shoes are great as a unique, thoughtful and special gift to treat yourself or for that someone hard to buy for on your list. These are the MOST COMFIEST SLIPPER SHOES EVER made just for you and are truely such a treat for your hardworking feet.
💙 100% Australian made from 100% Australian or NZ wool 🧡 Totally natural 💜 Ethically made 💚 Earth Friendly 💛 Handmade with love ❤️ Eco friendly 💞 Special gift
The shoes are made from 100% New Zealand and Australian ethically sourced wool. The outside ‘painted wool’ look is made with several wool colours in a random pattern. If you would like one solid colour on the outside or you have an idea for something else please just ask and I will see what I can do. The core wool colour of the shoe will be white, grey or black wool depending on your colour choices and my wool availability.
Being a natural fibre, the wool allows your skin to breathe and wool is naturally odour resistant.
No toxins have gone into making these beautiful, Australian handmade felted wool shoes ~ just wool, soap, water and love. Please note lanolin may still be present in the wool of your shoes.
Unlike the European or Nepal seamless slipper maker style, my style is a thick bottom with a comparatively less thick top. I use a white or grey core wool and then add a coloured layer of wool on the inside and collage different wools on the outside giving the slippers a textured look.
The new wool colours (pictured) can be used as inside, core and outside wool in any combination you like.
Fit and shoe size
Each shoe is handmade. Therefore the fit will be different between shoes, even within a pair.
My ladies shoes are made on medium width European shoe lasts. I am happy to discuss wide or extra wide foot widths and sizing, but I am sorry I may not be able to accomodate these requests at this time.
Generally the fit will be a little ‘relaxed’ with room in the toe spread area. As you wear them they will stretch a little and mould to your feet to truly become yours. Size down if you would like a tighter fit.
If you are unsure of foot side please measure your foot using the instructions here or I am more than happy to discuss.
There are three options for the soles of your shoes.
- Painted on natural latex rubber – STRICTLY for dry indoor use only.
This sole option is not recommenced for AND should not be used for outdoor use or on wet surfaces.
- Rubber sole – for indoor and light outdoor use.
This sole is hand cut, glued and hand stitched onto the shoe. The sole colour will be subject to wool colours chosen and availability.
Due to different computer monitors (e.g. models, settings, colour, panel type, screen glare, etc), the colour shown may not precisely reflect the actual colour of the item received, but hopefully it will be very close!
