Vaala Slipper Socks

Grey with red, blue and yellow cross-stitch 

100% lambswool


Hand-knitted with care using ecologically friendly lambswool, our sweet Vaala Mittens have been created  by our Finnish partner supplier according to traditional Scandi style. Two strands of grey yarn are knitted together before being washed and adorned with red, blue and yellow cross-stitch detail on the mitten’s edge. Due to the natural material used to create the Vaala, the colour of the socks may vary from one pair to another. 

Available in two sizes, with a choice of three colours.  


"Named after the place they were first knitted, these traditional mittens embody quintessentially Scandi style. Legend has it that this iconic design was first knitted in 1892 by Erika Aittamaa, who made mittens displaying this pattern by hand from her home in the woods to support her family. The thick woolly finish came about by accident, when Erika washed and brushed a pair of overly dense mittens she had made in an attempt to make them softer. 

The sweet cross-stitch pattern was subsequently developed as a way of keeping snow from sneaking in. If you love Scandinavian design you must add a pair of these traditional mittens, slipper socks or hat to your collection. They are sure to keep you cosy throughout the harshest of winters!"
