Cadeautje the latest Knitworthy pattern, I think the pattern description pretty much covers it. I would add these are ridiculously warm and comfy. Also you should make them for everyone (aka everyone will think you should make them a pair!) Here are mine and no you can’t have them.
I used Rowan Purelife British Sheep Breeds Chunky and carded fibre that I got at the Swiss open-air museum Ballenberg in 2009, I don’t have any other details on the fibre. It was a little trickier to make even thrums with than combed tops but is possible. I pulled a small amount fibre off the batt and teased it into a longer strip before folding that to create the thrum. The photo below is from my phone when I was making the thrums for the second slipper.
For those of you curious what the inside looks like, also if you follow Ysolda’s Instagram her rainbow wig photo from last week will make sense now!
Have fun with the thrums and enjoy cosy toes all winter! I’m looking forward to wearing mine, but it’s not cold enough yet.
