This is great when you need a toe pad for certain areas in your shoe. you do not need very much and it is very comfortable.The only bad thing is that you do have to replace it after a while. But other than that it is an amazing product, and I would definantly recommend this product to a friend!
I have pretty much all kinds of toe pads that are available on this website. I just never thought about using lambs wool because... it didn't really look like a toe pad. Then I saw other students using it, and wanted to try it. I spent so much on all other toe pads, so why not? And it's cheaper than any other toe pads anyway. I used this today with my ouch pouch jr that I normally use, and put some of lambs wool on the bottom where there are gaps. OMG! I felt no pain whatsoever. I also had a bleeding toe nail today, so I was in more severe pain than other days, but I had no problem dancing in them. I highly recommend this product and am going to order some more to stock up! :D
My first years of pointe I used ouch pouches and they were okay but when I changed brands of pointe shoes I thought I would give lambs wool a try as the ouch pouches caused pain in my feet. just not what I needed. The lambs wool was like magic it was so comfortable and I can put it right where I need it rather than where I don't. A little goes along way and its perfect for people who don't use a lot of padding in their shoes. LOVE IT WITH ALL MY LITTLE DANCING HEART
I am a huge fan of this type of lambs wool because it is easy to work with. You do not need very much at all to feel the comfort you need and expect. I also love the fact that you can wash it to reuse. I have noticed that after maybe 2 washes, it is best to replace. But washing by hand makes it last. My students love they it does not constrict the toes, but instead allows for wiggle room.
This lambs wool is so fluffy and relieves a lot of pain from being on pointe. I usually only use a little on the bottom of my pointe shoes, and it works magic :) I can still feel the floor, and makes my toes stronger, since I'm not relying on my toe pads. I highly recommend this!!!!
a little goes a long way! I like lambswool much better than any synthetic gel padding, the wool lets me feel the floor without any pain at all. After putting my wool in a mesh washbag in the washing machine on a cold handwash setting, it is like new - soft and poofy :)
oh, and I think this wool feels better than the Bunheads brand wool (the one that comes in pink shades). It seems to keep its fluff longer, not flattening as quickly.
