10 Reasons Why Wool is the Perfect Material for Slippers
Reason # 1
Wool is warm & breathable
Wool keeps your feet cozy warm while the small air chambers in the wool allow moisture to pass through, keeping your feet dry and preventing overheating.
Reason # 2
Wool is comfortable
We use 100% natural wool for all our felted slippers. This makes them soft and comfortable to wear even without socks. Natural wool is only used by a few manufacturers and is three times more expensive than wool blends.
Reason # 3
Wool is sustainable
As long as sheep need new haircuts (usually 1-2 times a year), there will be wool. Compared to plastics, wool is environmentally friendly and simply feels better against the skin.
Reason # 4
Wool is easy to clean
Normally, your shoes clean themselves as the natural movement of the wool fibers pushes dirt particles off the surface. More difficult stains can be cleaned with a damp cloth or with a dry horsehair brush.
Reason # 5
Wool is durable
Even if your slippers don't fit perfectly on the first try, the wool stretches where it needs to and conforms to your feet. Give them a little time on the foot and they fit like a second skin.
Reason # 6
Wool is stretchy
Felt has a unique structure made up of thousands of interwoven wool fibers that form a stable structure when felted under force and pressure and soapy water. The longer and harder you felt, the more stable the fabric will be (but also less soft). Felt is even used in industry as gears.
Reason # 7
Wool is anti-odor
Natural wool always allows enough fresh air to reach your feet and is naturally antibacterial. No smelly feet! *Except for the really difficult cases ;-)
Reason # 8
Wool is water-resistant
Have you ever wondered why sheep don't absorb water like a sponge in the rain? Because wool contains lanolin - a fat that is also used in skincare products that repel water.
Reason # 9
Wool is a great insulator
Wool is a great insulator. This goes both ways. While keeping your feet warm and cozy on any kind of floor, it also shields your feet from outside warmth.
Reason # 10
Once you experience natural wool felt on your feet, you will feel the difference. From now on, you will feel the difference to plastics and never want to go back.
