I have some sheepskin slippers that the sole wore out of. They are those that look fluffy on the outside. I took out the sole and liner and was going to cut out a sole out of an old sheepskin jacket but realised they were too large for me. They were already a little large but taking out the original sole meant they seemed even larger.

They are a size 4. Does anyone want them to add their own sole? I am VERY loath to just chuck them out - let me know your name and address if you want them and I'll post them off to you.

Would they fit a size 5 ie are they technically a size 4 but much bigger than standard?

If you donít have a any joy getting rid of them on here have you considered Freecycle or Freegle?

They are technically a size 4 but as they had a little wooden wedge in, which I removed when I operated on them, it means that if you were to put a sole on, you could fit a larger one than was on before, if that's clear? I imagine they might just fit a size 5.

I have given a lot stuff away on Freegle, like sand, flagstones & the like but it is just I read on here about someone making new soles on slippers with sheepskin.

Let me know if you want them, send me a pm with your address and I'll get them off to you.
