Wool

Wool is a natural and renewable resource that can be harvested annually from sheep. Sheep are relatively low impact animals, but can overgraze land if not raised properly. Wool production can also be insecticide and water intensive, but the finished yarn is absorbent and requires little dye during processing. Untreated wool is biodegradable.

This company partners with 1% for the Planet, a nonprofit organization that helps promote environmental stewardship. Members commit to donating at least 1% of their sales to the program, which helps connect them to high-impact environmental nonprofits across the globe.

Handmade

We support small businesses and craftspeople who create each of their products with care.

About the Company

Kyrgies

Have you ever thought about where your footwear comes from? How the materials were made and the people behind the label who work to construct the shoes? The guys at Kyrgies certainly have. From field to foot, the founders of Kyrgies have sustainability and direct community impact built into everything they do. Steve Anderson and Barclay Saul don’t only talk the talk when it comes to transparency in the supply chain, they walk the walk - literally! Their ethical slipper collection starts with a tradition that is over 1,000 years old - Kyrgyz felting. The slippers are produced in Bishkek, Kyrgystan, where wet felting with local sheep's wool has been a staple craft for centuries. Workers and families pass this skill on from one generation to the next and these slippers are one way they celebrate wool and preserve cultural heritage.

      Hi Ophy! Kyrgies do not like to get wet. Like wool sweaters, they will shrink and become misshapen. The magic of wool felt is that it wicks moisture so they won’t get as smelly as polyester slippers! However, if you do spill motor oil or bacon grease all over your Kyrgies, you can save them by getting them dry cleaned. Just do not wash Kyrgies with water – they’ll shrink and become misshapen, and make them unwearable!

    So well made/sturdy and biodegradable! I’m sure it’s going to last me years and guilt free! I’ve also got a pair for my daughter and she loves them, too!

  6. Question

    A S

    What is the arch support like in these? I’m trying to find an alternative to Birkenstock sandals as my indoor shoes/slippers. Due to my severe plantar fasciitis, I need something with significant arch support.
