In 1993 Nanny from Denmark felted a pair of boots for the first time, and the wool came from her own Gotland sheep. The felted boots were well received among friends and family, so well, that Nanny started a small hobby production. This paved the way for the company glerups.
Over the years glerups perfected the wool mix by blending Gotland wool with quality wool from New Zealand farmers. These farmers meet glerups' high standards for consistent quality and humane animal welfare.
We work with our farmers every step of the way and follow each pair of glerups from the sheep to your feet. We use 100% pure and natural wool for all of our slippers. The slippers have either a sole of semi-vegetable tanned calfskin or natural rubber (except for the baby shoes, which have no outer sole).
