Details

These wonderful hand-dyed wool crocheted slippers are made by a family business in Canada and are Elf-approved for their beauty, functionality and eco-friendly production. Padraig slippers are an all purpose slipper with the same great sheepskin soling concept that we use in our moccasins. Innersoles are soft, genuine sheepskin, and outersoles feature non-slip suede. You will appreciate how easily it slips on and off.

Like all wool/sheepskin products, these slippers are great for wear year round. Wool is a natural, breathable material which will keep your foot cool and dry in warm weather, warm and dry in cold weather. You can machine wash and air dry this product over and over—it gets better with use!

  • Hand crocheted from natural, hand-dyed New Zealand wool that moves and breathes with your feet.
  • Sheepskin Innersoles with non-slip suede bottoms.
  • Machine washable.
  • Upper stretches to easily slip foot in.
  • Handcrafted in Canada by Padraig Cottage.

Padraig FAQ

Q: Can I wash these slippers?
A: Yes, they are machine washable, but air dry.

Q: Can I put these slippers in the dryer?
A: No, never put your Padraig slippers in the dryer, they will not survive the ordeal.

Q: Do the slippers stretch?
A: Yes, the elasticity of wool is one of its key benefits, especially for growing feet. However, if after a while they feel too loose, a good wash can bring them back in shape.

Q: If my shoe size overlaps two sizes of Padraig slippers, which size should I choose?
A: Unless you like your slippers to feel a little loose, we recommend going with the smaller size. The wool will stretch over time.

Q: After a time, the bottom of my slippers have turned a dark shiny brown color, is this normal?
A: Yes, this is perfectly normal. With wear, especially on hardwood or tiled floors, the leather fibers are worn and polished. Some people have told us that 50-grit sandpaper brings back the texture, though we haven't tested it.

Q: My slippers are all fuzzy with small pills, is this normal?
A: Yes, Padraig slippers will go through a natural phase of 'pilling' after a few weeks. With continued wear or after washing, these pills will disappear on their own.

Q: I am allergic to wool, will these slippers bother me?
A: Yes, our slippers are made with 100% wool.

Q: Can I wear these slippers outside?
A: No, we do not recommend wearing Padraig slippers outdoors. However, they do make great outside wear for kids in strollers, backpacks, and when worn inside rubber boots.

Q: How long will my slippers last?
A: That really depends on how and how often they are worn. For example, if you are prone to walking on the heels or sides of your shoes, you may experience premature wear of the woolen uppers. However, in most cases, with the correct fit and a little care, they hold up exceptionally well.

Padraig Slippers Are The Very Best Review by Brenda

I started buying these slippers for my foster babies in the winter. I had 10 month old twins that couldn't keep slippers on. (Rapid crawlers) after buying several slippers I found these! I have bought them for the very young and the very old. I turned 50 and my daughter bought ME my very first pair! 5 years later I am still wearing my Padraig slippers! I wear them year round on my tile and wood floors. I couldn't do without these gems! I might buy me a new pair soon! I have bought these for my grandchildren and we hand them down to the next child within four families! Awesome! I can't say enough!!!! (Posted on 1/31/17)
Superior slippers Review by AAJ

These slippers are nothing like the scratchy, synthetic-foam-padded wool slipper socks I’ve tried before. They are heavenly soft. The breathable uppers and soles keep my normally cold feet warm and dry without socks. I’m a woman’s size 9U wide in Soft Star shoes and I got the men’s medium. They fit securely without socks but there’s room for socks if I decide to wear them. Totally worth the price. (Posted on 1/22/17)
Comfy but bulbous Review by Eve
Rating
These slippers are super comfy. I wear a women's size 8 shoe. I bought the Men's Denim - Small because they were out of the Women's Blue - Medium. The length is great but the width is very wide at the toe area (at least 1" too wide and I normally wear wide shoes). This makes the slippers look almost comically bulbous. It's fine for around the house so I'm not returning them.

The sheepskin sole and wool uppers are perfect for our Northern California winter in a brisk 65 degree house with wood and tile floors. I liked the look of the Fireside slippers, but thought they would be too warm. (Posted on 1/18/17)
worth every penny Review by Karin

I had never liked slippers until I got these. I never even bothered with slippers because they always seemed cheap and uncomfortable and kind of pointless. Then I moved into a place with cold floors... and I am getting older... and all of a sudden I changed my mind. I splurged on these because I trust Soft Star and I hate shopping around. I am really glad I didn't hesitate to buy these. They are soft and warm and very durable. I wear them all the time even in the summer unless it is super hot. My only issue with them is they should have a finding device on them so I can find them faster when I get home. ;-)

If you are not sure about your size, call and get advice from an Elf. I normally wear an 8U-Wide in Soft Stars. I bought the mens small and they are a little big, but it's not really a problem, and I can wear all the sox I want. (Posted on 10/31/15)

Please note: Padraig slippers will stretch over time. If you are between two sizes, we recommend choosing the smaller size (and if they stretch too much, washing will shrink them).
