The Sam slipper is a simple unisex style in the utterly 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. Full instructions come with the kit.
