New for Spring 2017. Our Cherry slippers have a real vintage feel. The Cherry crochet kit comes with pure wool yarn and a sweet cherry trim made from our thick wool felt. These woolly slippers are easy to make and comfortable and cosy to wear. A lovely design for feet large or small - as with all our adult slipper designs the Cherry slipper can be made in sizes from 1 - 12.
The slipper kit contains all the yarn and two layers of felt soles as well as the extra strong thread and bodkin to attach the outsole. Available with a choice of felt, suede or Vibram rubber outsoles.
If you choose the felt outsoles they will come with a latex paint applied to give just a bit of grip. We make the suede outsoles from strong and supple Italian suede which grips well on most surfaces, and our flexible Vibram rubber sole is undoubtedly the best for grip and hard wear as well as being waterproof. All styles include two layers of our thick wool felt for warmth and cushioning.
Joe's Toes slippers are cosy and lightweight. They pack very easily for visiting friends and family, and are an ideal gift to pop in the post. The crochet pattern is comfortable for all foot shapes and will adapt to suit many feet that would normally need bespoke or orthopedic footwear.
