COVID-19: Ithaca Sheepskin continues to be open for business online, but the storefront will be closed until further notice. If you are feeling secure enough during these times that you are in a position to do so, please consider supporting us with an online order!

Find Your Fit


We want every item we make to find itself in a happy home, and you can help us give them their best chance by working to select the perfect fit!

Footwear

Order your shoe size. If you have a 1/2 size, round up. Slippers should be snug, but not tight. Sheepskin is a soft leather that will ease out over time. The fleece will also pack down giving more room.

Slippers: They should feel very snug, like a glove, when first put on. Or, more playfully, Mark likes to say it should feel "as though an aggressive kitten is hugging your foot." You can tell if they are too small if your toes have to curl to fit in. If your toes are only snug, there will be a comfortable fit after one evening's wear.

The reason we size footwear to this snug a fit is so that after a few days they aren't floppy on your feet. However, please contact us if you are confused about the difference between "snug" and "actually too small". Slippers that are uncomfortably tight, painful to fit into, or curling your toes under will NOT break in, and we can only exchange them if they are still in new condition!

Handwear

Gloves: To determine your size, you can measure the circumference of the four knuckles at the base of the fingers. Use a tape measure or a string and then lay the string on a ruler. That measurement in inches is your glove size, i. e., 7 1/2 inches equals a size 7 1/2 etc. In our sizing, 7 = women's small, 7 1/2 = women's medium, 8 = women's large, 8 = men's small, 8 1/2 = men's medium, 9 = men's large and 9 1/2 = men's x-large.

Mittens: We have only S, M, and L. S = 6 1/2 - 7; M = 7 1/2 - 8; L = 8 1/2 - 9

Headwear

Measure the circumference of your head just over the eyebrows and behind the ears. Sizing is approximately as follows: 20 - 21" = xs; 21 - 22" = s; 22 - 23 = medium; 23 - 24 = large; and 24 - 25 = xl. Your hat size equals the diameter of your head, or, circumference divided by pi (3.14)

Vests

See sizing notes in listings, as they vary between styles. Please contact us if you are considering buying a vest, it is a personal and often idiosyncratic experience, and it would be unrealistic to try and cover every aspect here.
