Glerups: From Sheep to Shoe

Glerups Wool Slippers

I recommend the $105 Glerups Wool Slippers for keeping your feet warm and sweat-free when it’s cold out. I found the Glerups Wool Slippers had the best combination of comfort, warmth, support, and moisture wicking compared to other competitors. Glerups get better and better the more you wear them in. Made of 100% pure breathable wool, they’re soft but not stifling, super comfy, easy to keep clean.

The Glerup company use 100% pure and natural wool for all of our slippers. The slippers have either a sole of calfskin or natural rubber (except for the baby shoes, which have no outer sole).

The wool is naturally processed and the product is closely followed all the way from sheep to your foot. The wool is washed in soft water and then carded. The carded wool is made into socks and felted by using steam. Finally, the soles are glued and sewn onto the socks, before the final finish makes the slippers ready for shipment.

The characteristics of wool are unique. The unique composition and processing of the wool makes the slippers warm and comfortable, even if you wear them barefoot. The wool is breathable and can capture up to 35% moisture making the slippers feeling dry and warm always. The combination of good wear resistance and high moisture absorption cannot be surpassed by any other material.

The shoes may “shed”
Because of the natural treatment of the wool, you may still find traces of small vegetable fibers in the felt. Furthermore the coarsest wool fibers may work itself out of the felt, and therefore the slippers “shed” in the first days of use. This is natural, and the fibers just need to be plucked off.
