Navajo Churro Lopi Slippers. Yes.

Say it with me: Navajo. Churro. Lopi. Slippers.

I can't say enough about this yarn, Cabin from Hinterland Farm on Vancouver Island in BC, Canada. I purchased one skein from the Woolful Mercantile, with the intention of making a pair of California Comfortable slippers by Andrea Mowry (dreareneeknits on Ravelry). I follow her on Instagram, where I saw that she was making her own pair in this yarn; I couldn't help myself from following suit. And once I got my hands on this unexpectedly great yarn, I bought two more skeins. It's that good.

                   


This is nothing like "Churro" as you think of it; it's much more lofty and soft than I was expecting. It's mule-spun, which means that the fiber is spun from bobbins that move back and forth in a way that mimics hand spinning. The result is a lofty, rustic yarn that's soft and squishy, and I just love it.

This pattern, this yarn, these slippers: this is knitting heaven.

                   


These slippers feel like you're walking on a woolly cloud. Warm, cushy, and cute, they're the ultimate slipper. Thank you to Andrea Mowry for designing such awesome slippers!
