Recycle those old sweaters

Toebiter tabi slippers and socks


Toebiter tabi slippers and socks are made from used wool sweaters.

This pair fits a men's shoe size 11-12, and is made from a dark olive heathered wool sweater. The slippers sport a royal/cobalt blue sole stripe!

All seams are stitched twice for durability; slippers have somewhat traditional Japanese tabi-styling (split toe, quilted side panels and heel cup). Wool has been washed in hot water and dried using the energy-suck known as an electric clothes dryer.


I ran across these Japanese style socks/slippers today when i refreshed the Etsy front page. The gray wool with the blue stitching really caught my eye. Made from recycled wool sweaters, they are a steal for $35.
