General Information

From the Tiroler Steinschaf.

The mountain-dwelling Tiroler Steinschaf is one of the oldest breeds of sheep. To make these slippers, the stiff, resilient wool is processed without dyeing or bleaching, giving it a correspondingly "rebellious" feel.

Tyrolean slippers.

If someone says "Patschen" in Austria, they’re most likely talking about their slippers. Ours come from Gottstein, in Imst, Austria. Since 1926, they have been producing impeccable fulled felt: pure wool fleece, softened in pure mountain spring water exclusively, is then squeezed and beaten in an original ‚hammer‘ fulling machine until it‘s thick enough to be used for house-slippers of this kind of quality. The slippers are then rounded (from a single section of the wool felt), great care being taken to avoid irritating inside projections that are unfortunately quite common when they‘re made by hand. They are then put on a last, dampened, pressed and dried, which gives them their final shape. The slight bulge at the toe makes walking very pleasant, and the pure wool felt ensures a pleasant, constant foot temperature all year round.

Note:

The felt Wool is very easy to care for, as wool cleans itself in the air. If the felt should nevertheless be heavily soiled, it can be easily be cleaned by scrubbing with soapy water.
The felt slippers run somewhat small therefore, we suggest you to order one size larger than usual.
