Felt Your Feet: Slippers or Boot Liners

Course Overview

Warm up winter by making your own woolen slippers or short boot liners. Using the ancient no-knitting wet felting technique, you will make a cozy, warm pair of slippers or boot liners. The craft hasn’t changed in centuries except we now can choose plastic instead of animal skins and soap instead of ash or urine. It's a simple, almost magical technique that transforms fluffy wool into a durable thick material that is sculpted to the owner’s foot through patient, energetic agitation. We will discuss options for adding soles. Supposedly, the all-wool liners are warmer than the poly fiber mix that is so prevalent, but you'll have to be the judge of that yourself.
