    General Information

    Hearty wool, mountain-tested

    The Tyrolean stone sheep belong to the oldest sheep breeds of all, they are considered to be particularly down-to-earth and suitable for the mountains; they are therefore preferably kept in the high mountains, where it is already too barren for dairy cows and the climate is very harsh. With their dense coat of strong, durable wool, the sheep can withstand even heavy precipitation. The wool provides a good heat balance. For the slippers, it is processed in its natural state, i.e. undyed and unbleached, and accordingly feels "bristly".

    Tyrolean patches. From Gottstein

    In Austria, anyone who speaks of "Patschen" means their slippers. Ours come from Gottstein in Imst. Impeccable fulling felts have been made there since 1926: a fleece of pure wool or camel hair, soaked without chemicals in mountain spring water, is squeezed and beaten in an old hammer mill until it is compacted to such an extent that it is suitable for making such extraordinary slippers. The slippers are felted from one piece, cut edges that are perceived as annoying are no longer necessary with this type of handicraft production. They get their foot-friendly shape when they are pulled onto a last and soaked, pressed and dried on it. A slight curvature in the toe area makes walking comfortable, and the pure wool felt favors a balanced foot climate in summer and winter.

    Notice:

    Runs rather small: Better choose one size larger than usual.
