Great soles..

I bought three pairs, two to use on home made slippers made as gifts for family. One pair was bought to repair a pair of shop bought wools slippers I bought 8 years ago in Italy, were the soles were finally wearing through… Joe’s toes soles will keep them going even longer!
Id love it if there were two options for thickness. These soles are great, but for some slipper designs, an even thicker sole would be great.

Thanks so much for your review Jo. Our felt is around 4.5mm thick - almost 1/4'. I'm afraid this is the only thickness we can offer. It can be layered up to give a thicker sole. All our adult slipper kits include at least two layers of felt.

With this wonderful sole my handmade carpet slippers are getting awfully pretty and very robust. Many thanks for the excellent material and the prompt delivery.

Hardwearing thick felt soles with a smudge of non-slip latex.Absolutely fabproduct!! Easy to attach to slippers. Used mine for more than a year and they hardly show sign of wear! (I thought about taking them off to attach to another pair but will now order a full slipperkit!

Great soles, brilliant service

These soles are perfect for my handspun, hand knitted bootees. Brilliant customer service. After ordering, I realised I had ordered wrong size on one pair. Emailed Joe's toes and got a response almost immediately saying that would be sorted out. Soles arrived very quickly. I'm very happy with my purchase.
