Sheepskin and Wool Slipper Socks - Ink Sheepskin and Wool Slipper Socks - Ink

These Ink-coloured New Zealand Sheepskin and Wool Slipper Socks are designed and handmade in New Zealand, and only for ShopNZ.com. They are one of our most popular items and we love how much they have helped people. They've been great for people with circulation problems in their feet, and they are wonderful for wearing around the house in the wintertime. In fact I wear mine to bed! Great for invalids.

I created the pattern for our slipper socks, and updated it so they now fit better around the calf - it's the ribbing, it still feels lovely against the skin, but it helps keep the sock on. The sheepskin sole is also shaped better now, so it conforms to the shape of your foot.

The base of the slipper sock is New Zealand sheepskin, the hide on the outside and the wool on the inside, so you get a hardwearing sole and the cosiest of toes. Ideal for people who REALLY feel the cold! The wool fleece is around 1" (2.5cm) thick ( see picture below).

The socks are made from soft pure wool. This is not the cheap type of wool that feels scratchy against the skin. The slipper socks extend up the leg about 8 1/4" (21cm), covering and keeping warm those all-important ankles.

The socks are a beautiful Ink colour, with a very pale Blue stripe. Suitable for both men and women.

New Zealand Sheepskin and Wool Slipper Socks are available in all adult sizes.

Our aim is to keep stock on hand at all times, but please allow a week for manufacture, just in case.

The slipper socks come with our usual 365-day money back guarantee. We are confident you won't want to return them though. Over the years we've had people buy a pair for themselves, then come back the next year to buy them for family, friends and colleagues.

Here is the type of comment we get from customers:
"Hi Lesley, those slipper socks were the absolute best presents I gave this year! They were so well received - all three pairs were immediately donned with oohs and ahhs - you couldn't imagine how happy they were. You really did a fantastic job on them. Thankyou! Bill B, USA, 3 Jan 2008

Shoe sizes can vary. So if you are unsure of yours, please get someone to measure the length of your foot while you stand on a measuring tape or ruler. 

CARE INSTRUCTIONS: These lovely slipper socks are made for wearing around the house, preferably tucked up in a chair or on the sofa. They are not made to be worn outdoors.


CLEANING: The sheepskin fleece should only need a shake and an airing to keep it nice and fresh. But if necessary, you can handwash the whole sock in lukewarm water with a wool detergent. Do not soak. Just squeeze the suds through the sock, and then rinse well in cold water. Do not wring or rub. Squeeze the excess moisture out by wrapping the socks in a towel and standing on them. Dry in a warm spot away from direct heat. Easy!
