Soft, light and warm 100% wool felt slippers in a pull-on style that come up just over the ankle and that have decorative stitching and a button closure that can also be used. As compared to the low-cut boot, this style fits more snugly around the ankle. Made of New Zealand wool, they will keep your feet warm and dry year round.
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.
This model is with a natural rubber crepe sole that is even more slip resistant.
The extra thickness in the sole gives you a very comfortable home slipper and can also be worn outside on e.g. the deck. They are lightweight, durable and easy to take care of. Just air them frequently and vacuum occasionally. If needed they can even be washed gently by hand.
All our products are felted by hand at our own workshop in Kathmandu, Nepal and they are signed by the artisan, who each have their own signature with needlework. 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.
