welly wool and boot cuffs

Heres an old fashioned remedy that apparently stops chilblains and blisters! Line the soles of your wellies or walking boots with carded washed fleece for comfort and add boot cuffs for a cosy topping.I make no claims yet about the blisters and chilblains but it certainly feels very comfortable.The idea is currently being tested so watch this space!

  1. i am sure I remember reading about early christians fleeing persecution and putting fleece in their sandals to protect their feet...the fleece eventually became felted, forming a soft, insulated cushioned sole! Did I dream that up????
