These slippers are worked in two kinds of wool yarn: a coarse wool tightly spun and plied for the outside of the slipper and a soft, fine wool or wool/angora blend for the inside. The coarse wool wears like iron, and the soft wool provides comfort and warmth. They are thick and warm, stretchy enough to fit very comfortably, and very durable.
