Sometimes, during the holidays, you just need to give yourself a present. This year, I gifted myself a pair of slippers. Not very glamorous or sexy, fashionable or trendy, exciting or new; but incredibly practical, happy, cozy, and warm. So to me, these slippers feel like diamond earrings.
Padraig Cottage slippers are my new jam. These slippers are made from New Zealand wool, coupled with a plush sheepskin lining for the ultimate cozy and warm dream. And dream, it is! Like a soft, marshmallow, cushion-y HEAVEN. The hand-dyed crochet wool lets your feet move and breathe without being overly restricted or stuffed.
Handmade by a family business in Vancouver, Canada since 1977, these wonderful slippers are not only beautiful and functional, but they are also eco-friendly. The family business employs thirty local artistans and operates in Vancouver, ensuring product quality and support of the local community.
Like all wool and sheepskin products, these slippers are great year round. The wool fiber is a natural, breathable material and is also machine washable (not dryer-safe). The slippers come in a variety of colors and sizes (hello, baby slippers!), and are sold online as well as at boutiques and stores around the country.
So, if you feel like making yourself happy, I can guarantee you that purchasing warm and cozy slippers will do the trick. Plus, they make great presents if you are still on the lookout! Men, women, and children will love this gift of cuddles and snuggles.
