Sheepskin Old Friend Slippers - A Form of Foot Therapy
Of all the materials a therapeutic house shoe might be constructed of, sheepskin is a uniquely foot-friendly fiber. Sheepskin pelts are naturally thermostatic, thus they can actually regulate the internal temperature of a slipper keeping your feet warm in the winter, but also cool in the summer. Sheepskin also contains a natural moisturizer called lanolin. The effect is subtle, but over time wearing sheepskin slippers can actually smooth and soften dry, flakey skin. If you're feet tend to sweat, sheepskin slippers can also be an effective form of in-home footwear because of their high degree of absorbency and sheepskin's
characteristic tendency to continue to feel warm and dry even when it has absorbed a significant amount of moisture.
