Kyrgies Classic: Stylishly simple felted wool slippers
Classic in design and classic in name: our Classic felted wool slippers are our original Kyrgies style. While our designs might have changed across the years, the quality, comfort and classic craftsmanship of these wool house shoes has not. Think timeless, indoor fashion that’s the perfect fit for lounging, relaxing and embarking on the Great Indoors.
Thousands of years of artisanship and tradition go into every pair of Kyrgies. Luxuriously soft on your feet, our slip on house shoes are handcrafted from rolled wool felt using techniques borne upon the steppes of Central Asia centuries ago. Made from all-natural wool taken from small, family-herded flocks in Kyrgyzstan, these classic indoor slippers make the best of their natural properties: wool is both moisture-wicking and odor resistant, keeping your feet warm and dry, whatever the season.
Available in four colors, and with a non-slip sole for stability on hardwood floors, as well as a low back to make them easy to slip on or off, these Kyrgies will quickly become a staple of your comfy, stay-at-home style.
What makes Kyrgies Classics such a sustainable choice of house shoe?
Part of the magic of all of our Kyrgies slippers is how minimal their environmental impact is. Our Classics contain just four materials: wool, glue (made from natural rubber), polyester felt and silicone grips. 90% of the wool comes from small-scale, family-run farms situated close to our factory in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan, while our use of low-impact dyes and water waste treatment facilities limit the environmental impact of making our boiled wool slippers.
Each pair of Kyrgies house shoes is handcrafted by local, Kyrgyz artisans, who are paid a fair wage for their work. In fact, your purchase keeps our factory in operation, where 80% of employees are women. You can learn more by visiting our sustainability and craftsmanship pages.
These look so comfortable! Can I wear my new Kyrgies outdoors?
However much you might be tempted, we strongly recommend keeping your Kyrgies as indoor slippers. Wet conditions can cause wool felt to shrink or become misshapen; so, to keep your shoes in optimum condition, reserve them for use as part of your home uniform.
What size do you recommend I buy?
As our slippers are handcrafted, there’s a small chance that the sizing may vary, even if you’ve previously bought one size and found it fitted perfectly. If you’re between sizes, we recommend choosing the larger one. Once your Kyrgies have arrived, if they are the incorrect size, we do offer a quick and easy returns service so you can swap for one that fits.
How do I clean my Kyrgies?
We can’t stress this enough: please do not clean your Kyrgies with water! Thanks to the natural properties of the felted wool which they’re made of, your brand new house slippers should avoid retaining odor and continue smelling like roses for their lifetime. However, if you do spill grease or any other liquid that stains, a quick trip to the dry cleaners will return them back to new.
They are perfect! I was a mahabi’s fan, but they changed their design, and so I found Kyrgies. Kyrgies are head and tail above the original mahabis. Mahabis were lovely and wool but would get stinky, and the soul would unglue. kyrgies are warm but my feet can breath, and the soul is built in. They are cute! I picked a size too small bc you were out of my size so that is the only issue... but they are expanding a bit. Love them!
I love the grey color, look, fit and feel of these house shoes. The grippy pattern on the sole is very nice on my slick wood floor. I got the wool insole, too. I do wish I had ordered one size up. These were a gift, I would have chosen the molded sole for better arch and foot support, so I will order those next time when the grey is available again. These are a perfect size 7, room only for a thin sock. They are very warm, excellent fit and more flattering than I expected.
I gave these to my daughter and she loves them.
I will let you know how my daughter likes them , hopefully before Christmas!
I ordered a pair of your kyrgies for my daughter in law after wearing my own pair for about 3 months. Since I love mine, I am confident that she will love hers as well. Thanks for a great product.
