The woolly boot I made with wet felt technique learnt from Natalya Brashovetska.
The Austrian mountain sheep wool is really so easy to felt with. I added UK Wensleydale curls for the textures.
Up to the hill where I live......
Lift up and relax over our city view........ Hong Kong is in the sub tropical zone. We do have winter. Normally Nov - Feb are cool days, cold below 8C at times. But this year still not cool even hot.
Come on I need the cold days to cool down.........
Indeed I made the boots last year started with wool layering. After some rubbing, rolling and fulling......
The hard work is to glue it and hand stitching.
Finished with the slip-in boots with flap. After a year I thought it's no harm to do something and modify it to another style. I cut it to have the lace style.
Then punch the eyes for the lace holes each boot with 10 holes. This is the only part I can't do it myself so it's done in a shop.
Though I don't have the former style of slip-in. I can make another one later.
The pair now is lace tied I love.
