PURE NATURE on your feet

Types of wool: These are the different types of wool we use at Gottstein for our felt slippers.

We source the wool for our felt slippers from regional sheep farmers in Europe. In addition to wool from endangered European sheep, we also source merino wool and noble, rare wools such as alpaca, yak and camel. All our wools are of course mulesing-free.

In doing so, you support regional sheep farming, the preservation of rare sheep breeds and biodiversity in Europe together with us. The special feature: The natural models made of wool from endangered sheep breeds are 100% undyed and untreated.

The Tyrolean Stone Sheep

The Tyrolean Stone Sheep is one of the oldest sheep breeds in the world. The breed descends from the Neolithic peat sheep and is native to Tyrol. With a warm, hardy coat of coarse topcoat and fine undercoat, the animals defy the harshest weather. The wool captivates with its silky sheen. Due to their small population, these animals are acutely endangered: there are only about 6,000 sheep left.

Wool from merino sheep

Merino sheep wool is very soft and not scratchy. The wool fibre is highly crimped and therefore contains up to 85% air entrapment. Merino wool is therefore very insulating and breathable. Merino wool wicks moisture away very well. The finer the merino wool, the higher its price per kilo. We only use very fine merino wool from New Zealand. Mulesing is prohibited by law there.
