woolybaby.jpgOne of the perks of writing for The Green Mom Review is getting to drool over the awesome products we feature here. I’ve spent many an evening ogling web sites submitted for review, and last night was no exception. I spent a good amount of time over at the Wooly Baby web site, and am officially in LURVE with their slippers – not to mention the concept behind them.

In a stroke of recycling genius, Josie Marsh takes old sweaters and leather jackets and turns them in to the cutest, most practical little slippers I have ever seen. After she couldn’t find slippers for her baby that covered the ankle, Josie took matters in to her own hands. Her high-ankle slippers are made with felted wool, ensuring the slippers are dense, sturdy and warm. All-natural soap is used on the wool during the felting process, and the slippers’ bottoms are made from suede leather, resulting in a soft, non-skid sole.

Personally, I think Josie’s ankle-high creations are brilliant – I hail from Canada, a.k.a. The Great White North, where it’s cold. A lot. I’ve never seen high-top slippers that are handmade, cute and recycled to boot! Low-top slippers are also available for warmer climates, and Wooly Baby products are available in sizes ranging from six months to six years.
