Linnae hand felts these slippers out of 100% alpaca fibre that is grown and processed here on our farmstead. These slippers keep our feet warm and cozy throughout the winter months and are especially comfortable when worn with bare feet!
These slippers have a number of unique features including a delightful pixie-like collar, a leather heel cap, and a complete leather sole to create greater durability.
If you would like to customize these slippers with the recievers name on them, please write the correct name in your order notes and I would be happy to do this for no addition cost to you.
