Size and Fit
Sheepskin slippers should feel firm and snug when you first try them on. As you wear them, the wool beds down and molds around your foot making them loosen up. We recommend buying your usual size with this in mind as you don't want them to become too loose. If you usually wear a half size, we recommend sizing up to ensure you get the length in closed-toe and heel styles but you can size down with mules and sliders.
For occasional cleaning of suede, it is best to do this by hand using cold or warm (not hot) water. Use a damp cloth or sponge with a very mild hand washing detergent (non-bio) that is suitable for washing wool (like the Little Beau Sheep wool wash). For more stubborn stains, gently rub with a damp light nail brush, working in a circular motion and being careful not to rub too hard as this will damage the suede.
Drying the slippers should be done as naturally as possible, letting them dry at normal room temperature, avoiding radiators and direct sunlight. P.S. the best way for the slippers to hold their shape after washing is to place some paper inside them.
There are sheepskin cleaning products available, such as Punch Suede, Sheepskin & Fabric Cleaner.
