wool for slippers

What wool would you recommend for slippers for a person who does not like 'scratchy' wool? Is ragg wool scratchy?

I just finished a pr of slippers that I made out of Knitpicks Merino yarn. I am going to felt them and hope the wool stays as soft as it is right now. The only problem I have had with this yarn is that it has a nasty habit of pilling. Good luck

Hi josal I just finished felting my slippers and they turned out fine. I used a front loader washmachine and put several empty plastic pill bottles in the bag and washed it in a regular load weith hot/cold water. I used the free pattern for felted slippers at knitpicks.com. They turned out a little big for me so I will send them to my giant daughter. Hasve fun. Ellie
