To celebrate Wool Week 2015 (5th – 11th October) and support the Campaign for Wool we have teamed up with British designer Emma Wright to create these really very cute sheep slippers!
The Campaign for Wool is a global endeavour initiated by its patron, His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales, in order to raise awareness amongst consumers about the unique, natural, renewable and biodegradable benefits offered by the fibre.
These slippers are the ultimate in cosy comfort made from the softest British fleeces – fur wool and maxi wool from the Masham sheep and a little bit of British blue for added luxury made from 100% Bluefaced Leicester wool.
A FREE limited edition postcard pattern is available from your local erika knight stockist while stocks last!
Knit them in sheepy shades of pitch (black), canvas (ecru), milk chocolate or knit your own Bluefaced Leicester in blue Steve
Emma and Erika will be hosting a sheep slipper workshop at Craft Days during Wool Week on Thursday 8th October. For more information or to book your place, contact Jane by email or phone 01799 218429. www.craft-days.co.uk
As ever we would love to see your projects – so please do share photos of your own sheep slippers with us on instagram, twitter and Facebook
