Wool Knit Slippers

$22.00

Description

These beautiful knit slippers are warm AND practical. They are fully lined, unisex, and super cozy! A blend of wool is used to hand knit these cozy, Fair Trade slippers. Each pair is fully lined with fleece with no sole. 

These items are hand knit by Nepali women in their homes while their children are in school. Organized into small neighborhood groups, one woman is elected as a team leader. The team leader picks up the pre dyed wool and delivers the wool and orders weekly. She then will pick up the finished product and deliver them to the main office. Once at the main office they do the finishing, lining and final quality control. For Nepali women it is vital to be able to work in their homes while caring for their children and at the same time gain a fair income. This income gives them a larger voice in their homes and allows many to keep their children in school.

Please note that each pair is unique, and slippers come in assorted colors and sizes. You may note size needs in the notes section at checkout and we will do our best to accommodate them.
