In brief

Glerups Danish House Mules - Petrol Felted Wool.

Nanny Glerup describes her slippers as "beautiful, natural and warm" we would also add that they are practical, beautifully made and long lasting.

With soft calfskin soles and thick warm felt, they are by far the most stylish and understated house shoes we've ever had the pleasure to pad around in.

A hobby that grew...

In 1993, Nanny Glerup started producing slippers made of felted wool on a small scale, simply as a hobby. They were so well received by friends and family that she decided to make it her living. However she was only able to manufacture two pairs a day. Since then she has developed new production techniques and over the years, assisted by her husband, Ove Glerup, she has refined the design into the beautiful slippers that are produced today.

Materials:-

  • Ever since Nanny Glerup started the company, it has been a clear objective to produce all her products as eco friendly as possible. For the same reason Glerup's aim to treat all wool in their products as gently as possible. The wool is cleaned mechanically and avoids chemicals.
  • When dying the wool only the best non-metallic colours are used. Hides are tanned using the most modern and eco friendly methods.
  • The felt slipper is made from 100% pure natural wool that is strong, smooth and warm.
  • Wool has the capacity to absorb moisture (all 38% of its weight), therefore they keep your feet dry and warm.
  • The slippers may "shed" a little. The reason for this is that the coarsest fibres work their way out of the felt. It is only natural, and the fibres just need to be plucked off.
  • The qualities of wool become entirely unique when worn directly next to the skin, we recommend you wear your slippers with bare feet.

Care of your Glerups:-

  • Naturally wool has the ability to clean itself, so if you let your shoes have air and rest they will keep fresh. You can wash your shoes by hand in warm soapy water. 

 Not sure of your size?

  • Glerups are made true to size and are designed to be snug on the foot.. We recommend you order your usual shoe size. If you are a half size, we advise that you go down half a size, the felt will give and ease to the shape of the foot.
