I love A Verb for Keeping Warm Pioneer yarn, and when they came out with a marled version I knew I had to knit up some new slippers! The wool for this yarn is raised on Sally Fox’s bio-dynamic farm - Viriditas. The sheep help to fertilize the land bringing everything full circle on this farm. Pioneer is named for Sally’s progressive and innovative farming practices!

These slippers are a fast and enjoyable knit. Perfect while sipping on the hot bevi of your choice as soon as the crisp autumn winds blow in and the first few leaves fall to the ground.
