My felted slippers are done! These work up really fast, and are very cozy. My last pair fell apart in May, and it was already getting a bit warmer so I didn’t bother making another pair for summer. But now that it’s getting chilly again, time for more slippers!
Here they are before felting – my foot added for scale
And here they are after their trip through the washer on hot and extra agitation and a little while in the dryer.
They are still a bit big – the yarn I used is a wool/alpaca blend, and it didn’t shrink quite as much as plain wool would. However, a little big is better than too small. Especially when it gets cold enough to warrant socks as well as slippers 🙂
The pattern is (Ravelry link) Felted Clogs, and the yarn is Valley Yarns Berkshire in the Capri colorway. I also just got yarn to make more of these for family members, so those will be getting made in the near future as well. Do you have a slipper or sock pattern you really like and find yourself going back to over and over?
