Sam Slipper Kit

The Sam slipper is a simple unisex style in the fabulous Malabrigo Rasta yarn. This soft and generous merino yarn is the perfect partner for our felt and suede soles.

Our latest knitted slipper is worked mainly in stocking stitch with a stretchy heel section in garter stitch for a great fit. Like the crossover slipper the design is simple and comfortable for all foot shapes. It can easily be adapted for wide (even very wide) and also narrower feet. 

Kit includes:

Malabrigo Rasta yarn 150g hank

1 pair thick felt top soles

1 pair thick felt outsoles with latex grip OR felt midsole with suede OR Vibram rubber outsole.
Whales Road - Teal and Purple soles
Mercurio - Green and Charcoal soles
Marte - Marmalade and Charcoal soles
Anniversario - Fuchsia and Purple soles
Unfortunately Ravelry Red is no longer available.

Brilliant customer service

I've bought soles from Joe's Toes in the past but this is the first time I've bought a complete slipper kit. I've not made them yet but the yarn feels lovely and it's great to see everything included, right down to the needle.
After I had placed the order Amanda contacted me to say the colour I had chosen was not in stock and she gave me the options of choosing another colour or she could check with the supplier to see if they had any in stock. I chose second option and I was very impressed with the prompt communication at each stage of the order, and my kit arrived very quickly. I'm looking forward to making the slippers, having read such positive reviews of how good they are.
Thank you Joe's Toes

Thanks so much for such a lovely review of Joe's Toes! We try to keep everything in stock and make our service as good as our products.

Super snuggly

I have now made 6 pairs of these gorgeous slippers and everyone loves them. The instructions are easy to follow and the parts fit together beautifully - not to mention the wonderful colours available. My friend can't get her pre-teen boys out of their slippers where they have always been sock-men before.
Service from Joe's Toes is wonderful, responses are quick and kits are comprehensive.
Do it. Your feet will love you!

A review to make us blush! So pleased you have been happy with the slipper kits. We really appreciate your review.

Squishy yarn

I have made crochet and felt slippers from Joe's toes before, and decided to try the Sam slippers as I like the style. The yarn is very soft and I am looking forward to knitting them this weekend.

Love Sam's Slipper Kit

Love this kit. The knitting instructions were easy to follow and thorough. All the holes matched up perfectly on the soles. The video was very helpful in stitching the slippers to the soles. Great job. Everything needed was in kit, instructions, yarn, soles, wax thread, and needle. I highly recommend this kit.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a lovely review of our Sam Slipper Kit. It is really appreciated.

Sam's Slippers

Received kit last Friday have completed slippers, they are very comfortable. As I had ordered a pair if vibram soles I had expected to receive a metal needle to complete them, the plastic one is rather flimsy.
I would recommend the site as there is plenty of choice to personalise the slippers in different colours and sizes for all.
Thank you Amanda for your prompt service.

Many thanks for taking the time to review. You're quite right. We really should have sent a metal needle with the rubber soles and we're very sorry this wasn't done. So pleased you are happy with the finished slippers themselves.
