I need more slipper socks, it's getting cold.

I live in the UK, and I've never really nailed down a place to get great slipper socks. I really want these Acorn slipper socks, but nowhere seems to ship to the UK. Can anyone recommend either a place to buy them, or very similar ones?

Nordstrom claim to ship to the UK.

I was given these L.L. Bean slipper socks as a gift last year and love them. They'll ship to the UK, but I'm not sure about the shipping charges.

Came here to say LLBean as well. But the fleece slipper socks are more durable.

I was brought up on Totes.

You need Falke cottage socks.

You can get them via eBay UK (shipped from US): wool; cotton.

Thanks everyone! LL Bean seems to be the best option for shipping, Nordstrom and the people on eBay have really high charges. The Falke ones are nice but a bit pricey too, I don't want to go above £30 for a single pair of socks really. Although I could get some for Christmas I suppose!

It's a shame no-one in the UK seems to make or sell similar ones for a slightly lower price. I really want a sole on the sock, over the years I've not found the bubble/rubber things on most slipper socks to be grippy enough. Maybe there isn't enough demand to make that type really profitable in the British market.
