VITRAIL

These cosy slippers were inspired by the small windows of light peeking through the sky as the fall season unravels. They are comfortable house socks with a cabin in the woods feel, keeping feet warm for walks amongst tall trees.

The texture motif is made of twisted stitches that undulate and show the faux eyelet cable here and there, like bursts of sunlight between branches. The slippers are knitted from the cuff down, with a German short-row heel and a rounded toe.

Design: Audrey Borrego | Yarn: woollentwine
