The raw wool used in Egos slippers derives from New Zealand sheep. The raw wool is dyed with eco-friendly dyes. The wool is then carded, and the actual work of making the shoe can begin. The carded wool is shaped and soapy water is massaged into it, causing the small fibres in the wool to link together. The wet slipper are then dried in the sun, after which the suede sole is sewn on. It takes time to make an egos slipper. One worker can only make 2 pairs a day. 100% Natural Wool Sheep's wool is the perfect material for making slippers. Wool is a natural product with great insulating properties. It allows the feet to breathe, and the slipper never feel too hot or too cold. Wool can absorb up to 30% moisture without feeling wet, and without losing its insulating property. Moreover, natural wool contains lanolin, which makes the wool resistant to dirt, moisture and grime, and also reduces odours. When you start to use your egos slipper, they take on the form of your individual foot. 100% Fair Trade Egos have been certified by the World Fair Trade Organization Easy to clean Vacuum your egos slippers to remove dust. They can be washed in wool soap either by hand or in the washing machine on the wool program at 30 degrees. After the shoe is washed put the wet shoes on your foot so that it again takes the shape of the foot. Then take the shoe off and put to dry.
