Jill’s Boots – 275


Designed by Kate Salomon

Spinning and dying yarn can be a gloriously messy business.  A sturdy pair of work boots is essential, and there is no reason not to dress them up.  These top-down stranded leg warmers were inspired by Jill Draper’s fabulous retro fashion aesthetic and knit up with two yarns that feature New-England sourced fiber.  We hope that they add a bit of warmth and gorgeous color to your autumn wardrobe.
