Shear Thing

bedheadsheep booties!

When it comes to outfitting your little lamb, you refuse to be part of the herd.

But you’ll happily hoof it to Fabric Row for booties from local company BedHeadSheep. Each colorful pair is made from felt that’s been handcrafted the old-fashioned way (splashing wool with a little soap and water). The natural fibers help tiny feet breathe, and latex soles ensure older scramblers won’t slip.

You can also step out with an adorable critter spun from the same fuzzy fabric.

They’re perfect for ewe-know-who.


Available at Bus Stop, 750 South Fourth Street (215-627-2357 or busstopboutique.com).
