Alla Khalaydji has developed an amazing technique of making felted socks. She started with the traditional socks, jorabs, which are popular in Central Asia, Caucasus and Balkans, and developed her magic 3D template. She uses mostly undyed wool and cotton; these materials in combination with her felting techniques result in a strong, but elastic felt (see video).
These socks are great as house socks, but they can be also worn with shoes, especially when it is cold outside; they are perfect for gumboots. Such socks can be a good gift, or you can add them to your list of handmade products.
In this video, Alla Khalaydji gives a step-by-step instruction for making custom felted socks. She shares with you the ideas, tips and tricks that she collected during long-year experiments.
This tutorial is perfect for both experienced and novice felt makers. It gives you the tools to construct a variety of custom socks. You may use other colors of natural wool and fabric (for example, with traditional geometrical pattern), try alpaca/merino blends etc. Make socks that are as unique as you are!
