Why Knit Slippers are the Best Slippers

Brrr - it’s cold outside!

We’re now well into winter here in Cornwall, Ontario, and with a few more months of cold, snowy days on the horizon, there really is nothing better than slipping into a cozy pair of custom hand knit slippers. They’re durable, soft, unique, customizable and warm - they’re the perfect accessory for staying in, cosying up by the fireplace and reading a good book. 

Knit fabric garments have long been a part of our everyday life (dating back to medieval times). There have even been fashion designers who have added knitted slippers to their collections. So what is it about hand knit slippers that sets them apart from the rest of the slipper pack?

Comfy to Wear

Knit slippers have a soft texture and are super breathable. For that reason, during the summer months, the breathability allows for you to stay cool. On the contrary, during the winter months, they will keep your feet nice and warm. Our custom hand knit slippers are double-thick for extra warmth during the long, cold winters here in Ontario.
