This beautiful PATTERN for Lady Loafers was inspired by my husband’s Swiss ancestry and a cold winter’s day sitting by my fireplace. I wanted to bring to life the heritage that is so deeply ingrained in our home. Along with our Swiss clocks, and pocket knives, why not a pair of Swiss Loafers as well! These slippers (or Finkaas in Swiss – clear your throat when you say the “k”) are one of a kind and I hoped to portray all the classic elements that Swiss loafers have to offer, while giving it some bold contrasts and a modern touch, keeping it stylish and trendy. Made from 100% wool for warmth and comfort, and felted into a lovely and comfortable fit, I hope these slippers will warm your feet as much as making this pattern has brought special warmth to my heart.
