Yarn: Pattons Classic Merino Wool, 2 skeins, color "Grey Mix"
Needles: Clover US15 9" bamboo

This was my first real foray into felting. And I'm quite happy with how they turned out! My parents' washing machine spins even with the top open, which made it easy to monitor the status of the felting. I threw in a tennis ball and a pair of shoes to help agitate. I kind of want to make a million more.


  1. I really want to make these, i bought the pattern over the summer. i'm a pretty advanced knitter but the last slipper i made came out horrible. were these hard for you? how long did they take? thanks

  2. They're pretty straightforward. The only tricky part is getting the seaming to be as smooth as possible, and to get them to felt up! I used the washer at my mom's place and they felted up nicely in about half an hour. I say go for it!
