One of the perks of writing for The Green Mom Review is getting to drool over the awesome products we feature here. Iâ€™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 couldnâ€™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 slippersâ€™ bottoms are made from suede leather, resulting in a soft, non-skid sole.
Personally, I think Josieâ€™s ankle-high creations are brilliant â€“ I hail from Canada, a.k.a. The Great White North, where itâ€™s cold. A lot. Iâ€™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.
