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.

Customer Reviews

Love these slippers! Review by GG

I really like these slippers! I bought them a little over a month ago and I wear them every day. I was a little concerned that I wouldn't like the rainbow design but the other color options didn't have my size. Turns out the rainbow design is cute, not overwhelming. Also, the slippers are comfy and breathable. I can't feel any sort of seam at the front where the wool upper meets the leather sole part, which I really appreciate. Seams drive me crazy. I wear a size 10 in shoes without socks and sandals and the XL size fits perfectly. They stretched a little, which is fine because they were snug when I first put them on. I haven't washed them yet so I don't know how that will go. I wish they made a men's XXL so I could buy a pair to fit my son's size 14 feet. :-) (Posted on 7/21/17)

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).
