Magicfelt Rare Wool Slippers with Felt Sole
Rare-Wool Slippers - more sizes to come!
All of these amazing slippers are made of rare wool and feature a felt sole, dipped in natural latex:
- Bergschaf, brown - The cross-breeding of the Tyrolean Stone Sheep and the Northern Italian Bergamasker Sheep breed feels absolutely comfortable. Color reflects the natural wool.
- Juraschaf, black - This breed is native in the French part of Switzerland and derives from the Frutig Sheep breed. The wool of this mountain sheep has a particularly fine, nearly merino-like, quality.
- Coburger Fuchsschaf - A robust sheep breed. The specialty of this wool is its color. When these sheep are born, their fur color can be from goldish yellow to reddish brown (Golden Fleece). Over the years, it brightens up but it always keeps its reddish brown shimmer. Current animal population: only a few thousand sheep.
-Tiroler Steinschaf - One of the oldest sheep breeds worldwide. The breed derives from the Neolithic Torfsheep and its native in Tyrol. With its warm and resistant coat, a combination of coarse upper and fine under coat, these animals brave the harshest weather. The wool impresses by its silky brightness. The Tyrolean Stone Sheep is, due to its low number, acutely endangered. There are only about 6,000 sheep left.
- Shetlandschaf, brown - These sheep come from the harsh Shetland Islands located in the sub-Arctic Atlantic Ocean to the North of Scotland. They are small, undemanding and extremely resilient short-tailed sheep. The fine, soft, curly wool comes in many natural natural color variants, from which we have chosen "moorit"- a warm, light brown variety.
- Gotlandschaf hellgrau - In Gotland, there are still aproximately 9000 thoroughbred Gotland sheep - a very traditional and special breed of sheep. Rams and ewes have mighty horns, and their wool is flecked with grey and very soft. Even the Vikings traded the wool of Gotland sheep.
All rare-wool slippers have a felt sole that is dipped in natural latex to provide a slip-resistant and shock absorbent-wearing experience.
Beautiful and unique slippers for ladies and gentlemen from the Tyrolean Alps, Austria.

3. Measure between the two farthest points apart (big toe to heel)
4. Find the correlating size on the size conversion chart attached in images
While wool has a natural ability to clean itself, from time to time your magicfelt slippers need a beauty treatment too. Step 1: By brushing and tapping the slippers, you can easily remove accumulated dust. Many small stains and lint can then be easily removed with a brush. Step 2: Our slippers are felted in pure mountain water, so they should never be completely soaked. Stubborn stains can easily be removed with a damp cotton cloth and a little mild soapy foam. Step 3: Felt sole: Dust, hair and dirt can be easily removed by regularly tapping or vacuuming. If it gets soaked, simply let it dry in the shade at room temperature. Attention: Never dry in the sun or on a heat source. Leather Sole: Dust, hair, and dirt can easily be removed by regularly brushing and wiping the sole with a damp cloth.
