Question Wool footies without leather on the feet? Do they exist?

I would love to get some wool footies for our baby due in January but we are vegetarians and do not buy/wear animal skin. It seems like all I can find are ones with little leather circles on the bottoms. Anyone know where one can get a pair without the leather? Please tell me they exist!

Sweetie Bird Fashions is one of my favorite WAHMs - her NB's don't have the nonskid bottoms. If you need bigger sizes, you could try messaging her to see if she's accepting custom orders.

I have Woollybottoms wool slippers that don't have the leather on the bottom. I can send you pics. They are so adorable and irresistible in the itty bitty size.

I have a pair of WCW in XS that are just OBV feet. No leather. It shouldn't be hard to find tiny sizes without leather, its the bigger sizes that will be difficult.

Re: Wool footies without leather on the feet? Do they exist?

Totally just curious, and if my question offends you I am so sorry and it's not my intention.

But can you explain to me why leather is not ok for you but wool is? Is it because the sheep remains alive after being sheared?

I use either wool or cashmere on the soles, and suedecloth for the non-slip.

I bet you could contact woollybottoms and get them made without the no slip leather patch on the feet. They have great CS
