I just love these! Felted wool boots colors of teddy bear :) Knitted/felted top I made of fuzzy wool yarn, it gives warmer look for the boots. And they really are warm and cozy. Rubber toes saved boots even in a heavy rain. But it is better to use shoe impregnant (suitable for textile shoes / suede leather).

Fingerless knit gloves

My mother in law told me, that she used to knit fabulous mittens. Her mittens were taken to exhibition once. After, she raised her four sons, went to work, her hobbies were left behind. Now she is grandmothering my youngest daughter Leda. During granddaughter's day nap she remembered her knitting passion:)
And I have a passion of searching organic materials - wool and yarn for my felting projects. My supplyers from Germany makes wool which I use for felted shoes and a beautiful yarn - clean and pure, not chemically treated. Merino wool is washed in mountain rivers, carded and spun into yarn.

I offer these wonderful knit fingerless gloves  in my Etsy shop - natural wool colors match beautifully with my felted shoes, clogs and leg warmers. She is making more beautiful designs of the gloves and mittens.
The first ones are fingerless by my request. Very warm and comfortable, especially when it is chilly, but you need to use your fingers - when driving, taking photos, using phone, keyboard:

Did I ever mentioned, that this car was made by my husband Albertas? Well it was :) Few years ago, he bought a book "Build your own Sports Car", a welding machine, some steel... And now Haynes Roadster 7 is finished, nice car:) Pity, that our climate is a little bit too cold for cabriolet...

Rubber toe soles

I was looking for a perfect soles for my felted boots for a long time. In traditional way galoshes are outer shoes worn in inclement weather to protect the felted shoes (valenki) and keep the feet dry. But traditional galoshes are so clumsy and big...

I found the soles, which reminds of galoshes, but are much more elegant. They are with rubber toe, so the part of the felted shoe, which is the most vulnerable to moisture, is safe now :) From now on, my felted boots and clogs, can be ordered with  these soles.

In my Etsy shop you can find these rubber soles for felt shoes for your own projects
