Wool Bootie with Rubber Sole and Arch Support - Red
Our redesigned rubber soles sport deeper non-skid treads for enhanced grip indoors and out. Now you can comfortably step out in your Baabushkas to pick up the mail, do some gardening, walk the dog, and more.
Baabushka's footwear is handmade by artisans living in the beautiful Kathmandu Valley of Nepal. Using sheep’s wool, water, and organic soap, our artisans use traditional felt crafting techniques handed down through generations. The result is soft yet durable footwear. The felted wool is gentle on your feet —naturally insulating, yet allowing your skin to breathe— so you can enjoy wearing your Baabushka footwear year-round.
The bootie style is designed to conform to the contours of your foot and comes up past your ankle, ensuring a comfortable fit that will not slip off.

Materials: All-natural wool sourced from New Zealand with cast latex rubber soles and insoles.
Care: Spot-clean the surface by hand with a damp cloth and allow them to air-dry in indirect light. Soaking the slippers, placing them in a washing machine or heated drying can cause the wool to shrink.
Please note: As with all handmade items using natural materials, each pair of booties can come with subtle variations.
