The Padraig Cottage Baby Slipper is made with pure wool, dyed and crocheted by hand with a extra soft sheepskin lining and tough leather soles for long lasting comfort. The Baby Slipper has the elasticity to stay put without being overly constrictive on young growing feet.
Employing more than thirty local artisans and support staff, Padraig Cottage is independently owned and operated in North Vancouver, ensuring product quality and support of the local community. The slippers they are still hand-crocheted and hand-dyed in small lots, ensuring each pair is one of a kind.
Our slippers are made with 100% pure wool and natural leather, but are surprisingly easy to care for. Wool and sheepskin will not hold odors like most synthetics but, when needed, the occasional wash will also help retain the original shape and tightness of your slippers.
Simply drop them in a washing machine on a short gentle cycle in warm water using mild soap. Make sure to put them in with other similar coloured items, like towels (nothing with a zipper of velcro), to avoid too much agitation and abrasion from the machine.
Do NOT machine dry, best to let them air dry in the shade.
