Sometimes felted slippers don’t stay on very well because felting takes away all the elasticity of the yarn. But these slippers solve that problem. By knitting the sole in full first, then felting only the sole, you get the best of both worlds: a thick, warm sole and a top with plenty of foot-hugging elasticity.
