Brasstown slipper socks are worked from the top down, with a traditional heel flap. A folded hem is worked at the top of the sock and a tie is inserted after finishing to help keep the socks from slouching too much. Suede or leather bottoms are optional, but are a fun addition! These slipper socks are designed to have a bit of positive ease, so that you can wear a pair of socks underneath them for maximum coziness! Choose from a worsted weight or bulky weight version, depending on how cold your tootsies get.
