Handmade Wool Baby Slippers
Our little wool baby slippers have been custom made especially for us by Tom right here in the UK. Despite being diagnosed with learning difficulties as a child and told that he would never read, write or live independently, Tom has channelled his remarkable powers of determination and today runs his own craft business making beautiful felted wool products.
We were delighted when he agreed to take on our commission and are thrilled to bits with the finished product which would make a very sweet new baby gift either on their own or paired with our Muslin Pyjamas.
The slippers come in two sizes: 6-12m (equivalent to sizes 18,19) and 1-2y (equivalent to sizes 22,23) The natural wool fibres will flex and mould with time.
*The smaller size has a natural wool sole whereas the larger size has a grippy pimple sole for little walkers.

We are a small business making lovely things for small people
Willa and The Bear was founded by Hattie in 2014. Mama to Willa, Maud and Gus, Hattie knows a thing or two about the parenting journey and the stuff that helps make life a little bit easier!
We believe in quality and longevity
Every one of our pieces is designed by Hattie in Norfolk and made in small, female run studios in India or Nepal. Shilpa in Jaipur and Rojina in Kathmandu oversee our makers who are all true artisans in their field, block-printing and finishing each item by hand.
Ethical production only
We only use trusted makers and supply chains that operate completely ethically. No mass-produced, anonymous factory settings for us which means that our products are invariably more expensive to produce but we wouldn’t have it any other way. We know that our customers appreciate this important part of our manufacturing process too.
Our female-led studios mix our environmentally-friendly dyes entirely by hand...
Hattie's designs are painstakingly transferred to specially prepared wooden blocks which are then carved by hand. The designs are then printed onto our fabric by skilled artisans who create perfect repeat patterns entirely by eye.
