Soft, light and warm 100% wool slipper in a slip-on style with a low heel cap. Designed for men and women and made of New Zealand wool, they will keep your feet warm and dry year round. You can choose between a suede or natural rubber crepe sole that is even more slip resistant.
The wool still contains natural lanolin, which repels dirt and odor. They are very comfortable to wear with bare feet with the added benefits of regulating temperature and absorbing moisture. The extra thickness in the sole makes for a very comfortable shoe to wear around the house as well as out on your deck or terrace. Some even wear the rubber sole version around town!
They are lightweight, durable and easy to take care of. Just air them out and vacuum occasionally. If needed they can even be washed gently by hand.
All our products are felted by hand in our own workshop in Kathmandu, Nepal and they are signed by the artisan, who each have their own needlework signature. We are certified as a Fair Trade Importer in Denmark. When you buy from betterfelt you create jobs in Nepal with 1 pair of slippers creating half a days work in Kathmandu.
All betterfelt products are plastic free.
