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.

Fabulous Review by Emily

These slippers are fantastic. Excellent ground feel and flexibility while also staying warm and toasty. I haven't washed them yet but the idea that I could, in my washing machine, is very relieving. I'm normally a size 8 1/2 and I went down to a Medium so it would fit nice and snug and it's perfect; similar to a sock fit but not tight. (Posted on 11/17/16)
Best slippers ever! Review by Mari

I bought a pair of Padraig slippers while vacationing in Canada. I knew I wouldn't be able to take a trip back soon so I thought I'd never buy another pair. Then I found them at my favorite shoe store! Yay! Problem solved! If could wear these on my feet everywhere I go, I'd do it. I've washed them and they floof up again, very nicely. Thank you for carrying these slippers. (Posted on 1/23/16)

Beautiful colors, warm and comfy Review by KellyW

As soon as I slipped these on I knew I would love them. Clearly the colors are vibrant and beautiful. They are warm and soft,but not overwarm. They just make my feet feel so very good. I was nervous to spend so much on slippers b/c usually slippers get so well... gross after a while. I was sold on the fact that I can machine wash them. I haven't washed them yet, but I'm hopeful that they wash up well. I like how wide they are yet they don't slip around or flop around on my foot. (Posted on 11/20/12)

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).
