I’ve been to Lithuania several times in the Winter and the weather is fine for me, even with deep snow. It doesn’t have that damp coldness we have in North West England.
(For history buffs the damp is why it was perfect for the cotton industry when Lancashire dominated the world with its cotton mills, But that’s another story).
I’d read in one of the Sunday newspaper magazines about felt boots but never seen any. Then there I was shopping in Stiklių street when I saw a felt shop. They had everything made of felt, clothes, handbags, and boots!
So I tried on a pair and bought them. They weren’t cheap – 260 liras – but probably what you’d have to pay for some decent weatherproof shoes or a pair of good trainers.
I went back on my next visit to buy some more but the shop had moved, to be replaced by the Mamma Mia delicatessen.
FYI Felt is cloth made from sheep’s wool which has excellent thermal properties and has been used for centuries (apparently the earliest example of a felt article is from Asia in 600 BC).
