Description

Why is wool great for insoles?

There are LOTS of reasons! In fact, we think wool is one of the best materials for insoles because it really is functional. Here are a few some of wool’s unique qualities that make it the perfect material to use for insoles:

  • Odour resistant – this is one of the main reason’s wool is so brilliant for insoles. In fact, better than most manmade material insoles. As you may already know, human sweat does not actually smell. It is the bacteria that develops over time in our clothes or shoes that causes body odour. Wool naturally absorbs and locks way odours during wear. The wool fibre actively binds odours within its fibre where bacteria do not thrive. As a result, the garment remains fresher for longer. Clever hey?
  • Naturally breathable – wool has a unique structure that allows it to absorb and release moisture (such as sweat) without affecting its thermal efficiency. I can absorb up to 30 per cent of its own weight, even when next to skin.
  • Extra warm – thanks to wool’s hygroscopic abilities these insoles will help to keep your feet nice and warm. That is also why wool works so well for our 100% Sheep’s Wool Insulation!
  • Hypoallergenic – wool is resistant to bacteria that can trigger skin irritations in some people.
  • ‘Bouncy’ – the insoles are 10mm thick so add a great bit of comfort and bounce!
  • Completely natural – our insoles are made of 100% Herdwick Sheep’s wool from Cumbria that we collect during our Operation Wool project every year.
  • Sustainable – wool is one of the most sustainable materials on the planet because it is totally renewable thanks all the lovely sheep we have in the UK.
  • Compostable after their long life – these insoles should last you a good few years but, like all good things, they must come to an end. BUT the insoles are made with 100% wool, they are fully compostable! Hooray!

What shoes can I use these wool insoles for?

They are suitable for all shoes really, but we love using our insoles in walking boots, winter boots, wellingtons, gardening shoes and our slippers!

 

What size insoles do I need?

Our wool insoles come in two different sizes: a smaller size (UK shoe size 4-8) and a larger size (UK shoe size 9-12). Both are 10mm thick.

With everyone’s feet being different shapes and sizes, we have designed the insoles so that you can measure them to fit your own feet. To get the best fit, take the insole out of the boot or shoe you are planning to fit the wool insoles into. Use this as a template to cut your new (and much comfier!) wool insole and tadaah! Cosy, fresh smelling insoles that will fit perfectly in your shoe.  After some wear, the insoles will compress down and mould to the exact shape of your foot.

    Cosy with an added bonus

    These are warm, comfortable and excellent value for money. I bought the larger size so they’d fit any shoe/boot in the house and we discovered that the cat goes mad for the off-cuts. Chimney Sheep might consider adding to their product line.

    Great product: cosy, dry & clean

    These felt insoles are great. I put them in my felt slippers. I’ve bought replacement felt insoles before, but they have ended up damp and stinky. These have not! The herdwick sheep, they can handle everything my sweaty plates can throw at them. I admire the way that they are made as a sideline from leftover wool. Will be getting them again next time. Highly recommended!🐑

  3. Chris Bradly

    Comfortable feet

    Excellent product have turned my work boots into something comfortable

  4. Claire D

    Extremely cosy

    These came so quickly and are just the ticket – using them to provide an extra layer of warmth for slippers on cold tiles floors and they are absolutely perfect. Would highly recommend to anyone considering these.

  5. Peter Taylor

    So comfy, and good for the planet

    I love the feel of these, and the breathability of the natural wool means they’re even great in summer (I put them in my favourite trainers!). My other pair are going to go in my Red Wing boots for winter. It’s great knowing your feet are comfy, antibacterial and no odour, with home grown wool and supporting British business. I’m a size 8-9 so bought the larger size and it was easy to cut around my old insoles. The wool is thicker at first, surprisingly so – and I wondered if they would be too chunky – but they compress down and mould to the shape of your feet. They sit so well now. Thank you so much – I’ll definitely be buying again in future.

  6. Amazon Customer

    Excellent value for money, and perfect for slippers!

    Arrived so much quicker than expected.
    Perfect replacement insoles to my sketchers slippers – they now feel brand new and are so comfy! I was hesitant about buying these types of insoles as I am used to the more fluffy fleece type, but shouldn’t have worried!
    Excellent value for money. Would buy again.

  7. Amazon Customer

    Better for boots

    Nice and cushy, and very good price. I used as a substitute for shearling in some Ugg house slippers…and the wool was definitely scratchier underfoot than shearling but ok. I think they would definitely suit putting in Wellington’s or some other shoe, where you would normally wear socks. Unfortunately my dog found my slippers and chewed up the insoles! Looked like a sheep had been shown in our living room! Oh well.

  8. PamC

    Way better than any other thermal insoles I have tried before.

    Superb I always seem to have cold feet but these really made my wellies cosy and warm. Easy to trim to size.

  9. BJA

    Cosy feet!

    I’ve always got cold feet. These haven’t entirely fixed that (I didn’t expect them to work miracles!), but in slippers they are very comfortable and springy and noticeably warmer. The insoles are quite thick (a good thing), but I’m sure they’ll squish down a bit to the shape of my foot with use. Not an issue in slippers or larger boots. Will probably buy another pair or two for boots. Very happy with my purchase.

  10. Hazel Spence

    Perfect

    Surprisingly thick and warm. They feel lovely and soft too. Very impressed….just off to order my hubby a pair.

  11. Hamster

    Very effective in keeping feet warm

    The first insoles my wife has found that actually keep her feet warm!

  12. KTG

    Fantastic buy - now walking on air!

    When my first pair arrived & I put them into a pair of boots I felt like I was walking in air. And they are also so warm – one of the reasons I needed some good insoles. I ordered 3 more pairs, 2 of which are for a friend of mine. These are a fantastic buy and we are both going to order more. And for me, it is great to support industry in the Lake District, my spiritual home, and Herdwick sheep. Can’t recommend these highly enough

  13. Stationmaster

    Very snug but beware sizing

    Very nice and thick and warm. But there was at least half an inch difference in the length of the two insoles.
    Ok so I trimmed the larger one, but the smaller one was JUST the right length, and once I had cut one, it frayed a bit. So I can’t cut it as well as the manufacturer can. But these are warm, soft and comfortable.

  14. Rinpoche

    Sooooo comfy!!!

    Oh my! These are lovely. They look very different to others on the market but they are so much better. They are really soft, like standing on a cloud! Because they don’t have a ‘base’, they are versatile and can be used to make shoes/boots fit by shifting them around in the base of the shoe. My Dublin river boots were rubbing a toe and too sloppy on the heel but with these in, they are fit perfectly and really comfortable. The extra insulation has kept me warm on snowy walks. Absolutely brilliant. Ordering more!

  15. Lynda Parton

    Heavenly wool shoe liners

    So beautiful, thick pile wool, springy underfoot and so warm and comforting for my arthritic feet, I will definitely be buying more

  16. HILARY HEYES

    Total warmth & comfort

    Chose these insoles over usual lambswool fleece for winter boots to see the difference. Also, have found lambswool fleece ones to go flat quickly…….These herdwick sheep insoles are superb and live up to expectations. Just used for 1st time & not disappointed. Warm, thick , cosy and feel very comfortable. Made in UK so thoroughly pleased all round. I shall buy more for me wellies. Thanks !

  17. Amazon Customer

    Good to start.

    Unfortunately these haven’t retained their thickness or warmth. They also slip. They were great on day one!

  18. CJM

    Thick and substantial

    I bought the ladies’ size and intended to cut them down to a size 4 but they fitted my husband’s boots (size 8) perfectly so I let him have them and I’ve ordered another pair for me. He says they feel much better than the previous insoles he had in his boots although he hasn’t actually worn the boots as yet. I’ve never seen anything like them in the shops.

  19. fm50

    Lovely and cosy

    I bought these to replace the foot lining in my sheepskin slippers which had worn through. I like many others am working from home amd my feet were getting very cold no matter what I did. These arrived so quckly (2 days I think) and although the weather has been so cold, my feet have been so warm, but not sweaty warm. I would highly recommend them. 😀

  20. C.Lambert

    Comfy

    Really great! Turned a normal pair of boots into a snug comfy pair! lovely and warm and spongy to walk on. My boots are a 7 and I didn’t need to cut or adjust these. They don’t slide around and could have been made for the boots. Highly recommend

  21. Millie

    Snug and warm

    Brought for my winter boots.. fantastic..only need 1 pair of socks instead of 2..worth the money

  22. Christina Corser

    Fit perfectly into wellington boots and keep feet warm and comfortable.

    Nothing to dislike. They are well made and you can trim them to size. For those of us who work outside with animals feet remain both dry and WARM!

  23. Kindle Customer

    Lovely warm firm padding for boots.

    Great for the winter chill. Be careful to leave a bit of leeway when cutting to size – I made mine slightly too short! I feel these are going to last well. Thoroughly recommended

  24. Amazon Customer

    Insole warm

    Good product

  25. Amanda K

    Perfect for Wellies!

    Using these in my wellies means I don’t need to wear socks for those quick trips down the garden or short walks with dog in the rain. Love them. Unfortunately I showed them to my daughter who tried them in her wellies – and promptly pinched them! Now ordered more.

  26. jazz

    A MUST HAVE FOR WINTER WARM FEET !!

    I was delighted, the quality & thickness + comfort are unbelievable ! I will definitely be buying more, in the meantime I have purchased some for my friend who was ‘astonished’ of the ‘de-luxe quality’ !
    These are absolutely recommended 5* PLUS **********

  27. French Toast

    These are amazing!!!

    I was looking hardwearing and comfy insoles for my sheepskin boots. The sheepskin had worn away from under my feet and the boots had become uncomfortable. I put in foam insoles, and quickly wore them down. In my search for insoles, I came across these and though I would have nothing to lose; they were reasonably priced.

    I am so glad I ordered them! They are thick, warm and cushion soft underfoot. To ‘break them in’, I put them into my boots and wore them without socks for about half an hour. This allowed them to mould to the exact contours of my feet.

    They are soft enough to wear without socks should you choose to do so. They do leave fibres on your socks, but that is a small price to pay for the comfort and warmth of these insoles. I will definitely be investing in additional pairs for ALL of my boots; they are a worth investment. I would definitely recommend.

    Toastie Warm

    Purchased because I was sick of having painfully cold toes. Thrilled to bits with them, they’re not your pretty fluffy white things, but are Herdwick coloured, and they are SO warm. I recently performed in a live band outside at a Xmas light switch on, it was a bitterly cold day and for once, my feet were lovely and warm. I have since ordered and received 2 more pairs.

  29. Mrs B G Coomber

    Warm and soft

    I love how soft they are …
    So warm…..the best insoles I have ever had …. totally better than man made fibre options

  30. A. Knox

    A TREAT FOR COLD FEET

    What a treat for my poor cold feet, these snug insoles are fabulous! I love that they are 100% British from Herdwick wool. I have already been singing their praises with my colleagues and friends and family! THANK YOU

  31. Badger 1955

    COSY!

    Love these, soooo cosy!
    Will get some more for my wellies for winter!
    I used these for my slippers, as the ones in the slippers had really discoloured and I could not get them clean.

  32. Nicola KS

    Brilliant

    So warm in winter and cool in summer, I’m never going back to any other insole again
