Done! The slippers now have thick, felted wool soles and are ready to wear. The addition of the felted soles gives the bottoms a very cushy padding. They’re soft and warm, like slipping your feet into cozy blankets. I just love how these chunky slipper socks turned out!
Chunky Slipper Socks
For the soles I used Allure fibre wash, which you can read all about in this post here. To felt the soles I placed them in a large bowl of very hot (almost boiling) water with several drops of the fibre wash and (protecting my hands with rubber gloves) carefully rubbed the pieces together until the fibres fused and felted. I pinned the pieces down to the shape I wanted and then patiently waited until they were fully dry. Once the felted soles were dry I sewed each piece to the bottoms of the slipper socks. The added felted soles make these so warm and comfy!
