Happy Feet

Don't leave your feet out in the cold, bundle them up in these thick and toasty slippers fashioned from upcycled patterned sweaters. Each pair is trimmed in a berber cuff and lined in fleece to further insulate your footsies for primetime winter lounging and snuggling by the fire. Available in your choice of a down-to-earth neutral or frosty blue color scheme. Made in Michigan.

Due to the upcycled nature of these items, each slipper will vary. We cannot guarantee any patterns shown in photo will be incorporated. Sorry, no choice of pattern.

Sue Burns

Sue Burns began making her line of scarves, hats, jackets and stockings after her husband shrunk two of her sweaters. Rather than throwing them out, she made jackets for her two daughters. Soon others were requesting the custom-made pieces.

The business started in the living room, moved to the basement, and then finally got its own store in the village of Lake Leelanau in Michigan.

What began as children's clothing graduated into adult clothing because Burns wondered, "Why do kids get to have all the fun stuff to wear?"

All of Burns' products are made from 100% recycled material, mostly from second hand shops that have too much stock.

    Comments about UPCYCLED WOOL SWEATER SLIPPERS:

    I bought these as a gift for my awesome sister-in-law who lives in Boston and has hard woord floors. She lives on her feet cooking for a huge family, entertaining several close neighbors and friends and keeping her beautiful new home immaculate. They are PERFECT and I hope she loves them as much as I do!

      I bought one pair for myself and a second pair I will give my mom for Christmas. I love them! They are warm and cozy without being too hot. And I especially love the asymetry and uniqueness of each pair.

        These slippers are the best winter purchase I have ever made! They seem to form to your feet at the first few wears. The slippers are SO warm and cozy. Perfect for lounging in my not-so-warm apartment.

          I received these slippers as a gift for Christmas. I love them!! Not only are they super warm and instantly comfortable but they're from an eco-conscious company that is completely upcycled. I will keep warm in these slippers for many cold winters. :)
