We did many experiments with shapes, colours and designs before we came up with shoes that are best for both the babies and their moms. We use the finest (16-19 micron) Merino wool and each pair of Lambeli shoe is carefully made individually by hand in our smoke- and pet-free workshop. Felt shoes offer perfect and feather-light footwear for the baby. Felt can maintain a comfortable microclimate for the body, it excels in controlling body temperature, is breathable and controls humidity, so it is a truly perfect choice in every season and weather. It can safely be worn even if the baby has eczema or allergic symptoms. Felt provides gentle care for the sensitive skin.
In the manufacturing phase fine wool is mixed and kneaded with hot water and soap and dried on shoe forms without seams or stitching, so the shoes take their final shape straight away. This is a lengthy process, so the creation of each pair of Lambeli shoes requires one working day in total – what we do is not mass production and no big product runs are involved here. These tiny shoes are made strictly by hand, with the greatest attention and loving care, in small quantities. They are a great reminder that you do not need to wait until your baby starts walking before you buy the first pair of shoes.
Coveralls are a thing of the past: these days mothers prefer to dress their little ones in more “grown up” pieces that are practical, nice and comfortable and can be mixed and matched well. But the overall effect can only be perfect if the baby is not wearing just a pair of socks on their feet. This is the purpose of the “pram shoes” we offer: they are an important baby fashion accessory. We need to add here that Lambelis are meant for the smallest ones only: for toddlers and small children who can walk safely we suggest shoes with proper, non-slip soles. Maybe the greatest source of happiness in any family is when a child is born, but we are equally happy when friends, relatives or acquaintances have a new baby. Everybody likes to give presents on these occasions and Lambelis offer an excellent choice. They are made from 100 per cent pure lamb’s wool and are like a gentle cuddle for the baby’s feet. Give a pair of Lambeli shoes at the baby shower and you will be the star of the day. They are a unique present to unique children.
Babies can wear their Lambelis in the pram, in the carrier seat, at home or during visits, or when you are in company or at a restaurant. As well as an everyday accessory, Lambeli shoes make great christening, Easter, Christmas or even newborn photoshoot presents to be given by grandparents or family friends. Later, when the baby has grown out of them, they can be a cherished keepsake for the parents or grandparents. Would you like something really special? Do you have an idea but you cannot realize it? Contact us and we will turn it into reality for you. Apart from the stock you can see on our website we are happy to create Lambelis for you in shapes and colours of your choice.

CARE INSTRUCTIONS Lambeli shoes made from Merino wool do not need washing because wool repels dirt – we can call it a self-cleaning material. A good airing in damp weather will deodorize and refresh them. If they still need to be cleaned then hand wash them gently in water not warmer than 30°C using natural soap or wool detergent. Remove dirt by gently pressing the material; you should avoid vigorous or rubbing movements at all times because these may distort the shape and the structure of the shoes. Rinse your Lambelis in lukewarm water and remove excess water by blotting them in a soft towel. Dry them in the open air, preferably on a shoe form, or reshape and stuff them. Please don’t use your washing machine and drier. Moths love wool so your Lambeli shoes need to be kept away from them. The best protection is use. Moths prefer dark, peaceful, undisturbed places so do not store your felt pieces at the back of deep drawers or cabinets. Keep them in a well-lit place and move them around frequently.
We are convinced that the sensitive skin of babies requires the use of the finest, soft wool. Let us count all the blessings wool has to offer: We humans have been using it for several thousand years and it is readily available. It is a natural and “renewable” material because sheep can be shorn once or twice every year. It is environmentally friendly and recyclable because it is 100 per cent biodegradable. It is soft, supple and feels nice against your skin. It absorbs moisture exceptionally well; this is why even wool having a high (40 per cent) moisture content feels dry and warm to the touch. It has excellent heat insulating properties, too, because the delicate, wavy structure of Merino wool fibres can trap a lot of air. Owing to the thin waxy coating of wool fibres felt made from Merino wool repels water.
QUALITY We buy the extra fine (16-19 micron) Australian Merino wool from the German company Wollknoll (www.wollknoll.eu). The wool they supply is ÖKO-TEX® Standard 100 certified which guarantees that it is harmless to your health and that products made from it can pose no danger to their wearers whatsoever.
