These wonderful slippers are one of our most popular items.
Handmade in North Vancouver British Colombia Canada from all natural materials (handspun, hand dyed) they are one of the most comfortable, durable and beautiful pieces of footwear you will ever find! My kids adore these and I love them too. Terrific for gifts.
The soles are made of a soft sheepskin lining and tough cowhide on the outside. Comfortable and light, the slipper is cozy but not hot as wool breathes. Many people wear their Padraig Slippers all year round. The leather sole is non-slip and gives long life as does the yarn, boiled to lock the fibres.
The slippers are machine washable in luke warm water on gentle cycle but not machine dryable. Children and adults alike like the fun, bright colours, the light weight and the lack of restriction on their feet.
The children's slippers come in one style - the original boot with a cotton lace
The adult ladies slippers come in three styles: the original low boot style, the Ceilidh a slip on with a composit sole for greater stability and the Crofter, a higher boot with a tongue for ease of entry and a tie with a slider.
The adult man's come in 2 styles, the Original and the Crofter
Angora Newborn Sets
The perfect Baby gift! The absolutely beautiful slippers and hat with ear flaps and chin tie are an angora/wool blend and are unbeleivingly soft to the touch. Satin ribbons for laces, they come nested in tissue within a corrugated craft gift box.
