Why the Ecowool?
The EcoWool clog is sustainably sourced and responsibly produced. Handmade in our private, carbon neutral, low-waste facility in Tirol, Austria, this shoe represents over 120 years of craftsmanship and environmental stewardship. Sourced from local wool collectives and small farms, this clog financially supports important heritage breeds and their dedicated farmers. The wool in this clog has been washed and remains natural with no added coloring. Matched with a sustainable, natural cork/latex footbed, it offers exquisite comfort in what may be the most eco-conscious clog ever produced.
The Tirolean Stonesheep (Tiroler Steinschaf) is one of the oldest existing sheep species on earth. These sheep have been bred on remote mountain farms for centuries in Tirol for their meat, milk, and wool. Their wool was in high demand especially in the 20th century to produce loden cloth. Today, the Tirolean Stonesheep is a rare species. The estimated Austrian population is around 4,000 sheep, and 14,000 worldwide.This clog is part of our Species Preservation Initiative and helps support this rare breed.
Shetland sheep are native to the Shetland Islands in Scotland. The breed traces its roots to the ancient Nordic heather sheep and has been recorded in history since the Stone Age. The wool of the Shetland Sheep is very high quality with a high level of elasticity. Once a year, in the springtime, the sheep shed their wool. At that time the wool can be easily loosened and detached without shearing, but rather by picking it.This clog is part of our Species Preservation Initiative and helps support this rare breed.
The Juraschaf is native to Switzerland and spends most of its life in the Alps. The breed is popular in Switzerland and its wool is in high demand for its high quality, dark color and fine fiber structure. It is well known for its ability to thrive in tough alpine conditions. Due to its consistent fleece color, Juraschaf wool is rarely dyed or colored. Raw wool ranges from dark brown to completely black. When blended for our clogs, it produces a rich, deep espresso brown. Juraschaf wool is soft and fine, with all the wonderful natural insulating properties of alpine sheep wool.This clog is part of our Species Preservation Initiative and helps support this rare breed.
Alpaca is a well-known wool producer and is raised all around the world. The wool we use is from the Peruvian Alpaca, which is native to the Andes in South America. Their wool is highly prized for being softer and silkier than cashmere, yet very durable and warm. Our wool is called "baby alpaca" and is sourced from a Fair Trade Certified & Cruelty Free Collective. "Baby Alpaca" does not refer to the age of the alpaca, but rather the grade of the wool - Baby being the finest and softest.
Pain Relief Ratings
I work from home and generally wear slippers of some sort around the house but end up with a lot of foot pain. I purchased these to try for more support and am very pleased with the result. Foot pain is gone! I ended up ordering a smaller size clog than I normally order in shoes.
Got a few weeks of wear on them now (EcoWool Alpaca Clogs) and thus far, they've exceeded my expectations. High quality build and craftsmanship. The wool is thick, soft, and warm while still breathable. Cork footbed is comfortable and getting better each time I put them on. Can't wait till they'll really broken in.
Note: I was VERY skeptical of the sizing as I normally wear a US 11, but purchased a 9.5 in accordance with chart provided on website. As they break in, they fitting great.
