Ladies’ Felt Slippers
One-piece, seamless – the Haunold Slipper from South Tyrol.
Haunold is a family firm in South Tyrol, and, with credentials going back to 1560, the oldest in the country. The slippers we offer here are a real work of art: they’re made of a single piece of wool felt and have no stitching whatsoever. There’s no risk of the fibres unravelling – they’re extra dense, especially at the sole, and 100% pure new wool – and the slippers are really comfortable to wear, either in the warm or the cold.
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.
Haunold®. Walkfelt with brains
Behind the Haunold® brand stands the Zacher family from San Candido, which has been active as craftsmen since 1560 and thus runs the oldest craft business in South Tyrol. At present, it is the five siblings Johann, Hedwig, Alois, Friedrich and Christina who, together with three employees, produce first-class fulling felt products. Today's business goes back to a millinery that came into the family around 1850. The wool felts and felt slippers are still produced there according to the old millinery tradition - which is why the Zachers still feel they belong to the millinery trade. The rolling of the felt slippers is still done on the old hammer mill, which the great-grandfather had made in 1901 and which has been in continuous use ever since. Incidentally, the brand name Haunold® comes from the local mountain of the municipality of San Candido, a Dolomite peak located in the immediate vicinity of the famous Three Peaks.
The slippers run rather small: We recommend choosing a size one size larger than your usual size.
