Felted boots – who would have thought! And yes, these boots are made for walking… outdoors. And are really warm and comfy too!
Asta, never one to sit on her hands, has made these really cute and functional boots for her daughter. They are made from merino wool, wet felted, using these wooden shoe lasts to create the correct foot shape. Asta sourced rubber soles which she then attached and finished the boots with a needle felted cat face (work in progress in the one eyed cat image below)! A tremendous hit with her daughter and, I wouldn’t be surprised if she had lots of orders for more!
And while we are on the subject, here are some indoor booties Asta has made ……. just what is needed to get through in this extended winter!! These are very warm, comfortable and stand up to a good deal of wear and tear. It is great to see handmade and functional footwear being produced. Wool is breathable, insulating, readily absorbs moisture, hygienic and dirt repellent. Most importantly these booties are eco-frendly, with no chemicals of any kind used in the process. Who wouldn’t want a pair! Get in line!! You can contact Asta through her facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/OldCourtLinens/
