In 1993, Danish mother Nanny Glerup handcrafted a pair of slippers using the natural woll from her own Gotland sheep. So well were the slippers loved by family and friends that Nanny´s hobby soon became a small scale production - two pairs a day.

Since then, Nanny and her husband Ove have worked hard in order to develop and improve both process and the final product. Several machines have been invented and modified, making Glerups capable to keep up with demand from customers worldwide.
