Those boots do look mighty cozy! I've got to sort out my boot sock supply, pronto. It's been bitter cold here lately, and when the barnyard thaws it's inches-deep mud.
Hi Quinn,If I was you, I'd make wool linings for my boots.The warmest boots I have are lined with wool. I wear them most of the time without socks. Taking trash out was a bit colder than I care for. lol
Do you mean felted wool? I guess my wool bootsocks are sort of removable bootliners.
I don't see what looks like felting. I'm not sure how the sheepskin/wool is processed. In my Bearpaw boots the tag says, "sheepskin/wool blend", thick fuzzy stuff like a teddy bear fur. I shaved and cut a tiny section, and in my amateur opinion it is sheepskin (tanned sheep's skin with wool attached), and passes the wool burn test. I think the thickness helps the warmth factor.
Aha, actual sheepskin lining! I don't work with leather so that never occurred to me, but I'm sure it is very warm indeed! I thought you meant thick felt liners, like the original Sorel liners. Those are warm, too, and I wore Sorels for many years but I stopped when the company started making them in china.
Could you make your own linings using the goat's wool? Or find a sheepskin coat at a thrift store to make linings?
