VOILOK - awesome slippers made of felt.
Felt is a non-woven fabric that is produced by matting, condensing and pressing fibres together. It is made from an environmentally friendly sustainable source such as wool (sheep wool) and therefore felt is 100% biodegradable.
Some facts about wool and felt:
* Environmentally Sustainable. Wool is a sustainable resource. The processing of wool requires very little environmental impact compared to other natural fibers or man-made fibers.
* Hypoallergenic. Dust mites? No problem. They don't like wool. Dust mites prefer hot humid environments that are more common in synthetic products.
* Absorbency creates comfort. Wool is comfortable to wear in both warm and cool conditions.
* Fire Resistant. When subjected to flames, wool most likely just smolders and extinguishes itself. That's why fire fighters wear wool uniforms and natural bedding manufacturers use wool in their products to meet fire codes.
* Other Properties. Wool has good insulation, fire retardant and antibacterial properties. Diminishes body odor.
