Made of pure and sustainable materials
The slippers are made of pure sustainable raw materials, and the wool still contain the natural lanolin which makes them best wearing on bare feet. In this way you utilize the wools ability to absorb the moist, and release it again. Keeping your feet dry and comfortable.
The lanolin also protects against dirt and bad odeurs as it is coating each fiber, protecting against dirt and smell. Should your shoes get dirty you will usually be able to beat out the dirt and dust. Otherwise they can actually be washed by hand.
Many of the Betterfelt customers declare themselves addicted to their woolen slippers. You will most likely use them every day, thus their high durability is so important.
Pure 100% natural felted wool, that still contains lanolin. Please note that all the shoe including the bottom is felted in one piece.
Natural rubber. (Natural rubber dissolve in oil based solvents like gazoline, diesel etc.) Please note that all felt shoes are felted in one piece. Thus the in-soles are also felt wool bottom soles
All sustainable products are manufactured from natural raw materials without harmful additives, and they all comply to both EU and US legislation (REACH).
The felted wool (also called boiled wool) shoes can be washed (carefully and at your own risk) by hand at max 30°C. Use a hair shampoo or wool shampoo. Dry the shoes on a towel turning the soles upward. Wool will start felting (shrink) when massaged in hot water. Avoid therefor to rub your slippers during washing.
