Here at Draper of Glastonbury we are experts at making the finest lambskin slippers, and we specialise in extra soft, warm, and comfortable slippers that are made from premium quality lambskin, suede, and leather, and we have a huge range available for men and women. All of our mens lambskin slippers are individually handcrafted in our factory in Glastonbury, Somerset, and they are made by expert craftspeople with many years of experience in making the very best slippers in the world. Most of our skilled workers have been with the company for most of their working lives, with an average of 30 years per employee, so this emphasises the level of skill that goes into making each and every pair of womens lambskin slippers we produce.
So what are the unique properties that make lambskin slippers better than other types of slippers?
They are made from a natural material that is naturally warm, comfortable, and breathable. It will keep you warm in the winter, cool in the summer, and it is naturally antibacterial too. Lambskin is also hygroscopic, which means that it can absorb a third of its weight in water without becoming damp, in other words, they are naturally waterproof and will never feel hot and sweaty.
There is nothing warmer than premium lambskin slippers UK, genuinely. Wool alone is nowhere near as warm as lambskin, and in really cold climates they recognise the benefits. Lambskin is extremely popular in Canada and Norway for example, and here at Drapers, we represent the best of British lambskin.
Lambskin is a sustainable material that is a by product of the meat industry. We create lovely slippers from a material that would otherwise go to waste, and the slippers are designed to last for many years. We specialise in classic designs that we know will be popular in many years to come.
Lambskin is extremely hard wearing, especially when combined with leather and suede. Most of our slippers have a suede upper and lambskin lining. The combination of the two makes them last for a very, very long time. We are often contacted by customers who have had our slippers for over 30 years.
Lambskin is another name for sheepskin, and it is the very best type of sheepskin for making premium lambskin mule slippers. All of our slippers which we call sheepskin are made from lambskin, and we hope that you are able to find a style that will suit you. Our company was established in 1937, and we have specialised in making lambskin moccasin slippers ever since. We are the oldest producers of lambskin bootie slippers in the UK, and probably much further afield too.
