Zuken Baby Slippers

 Here is a pink pair of Zuken baby slippers. A new Prairie Wind Alpacas product.

This European old world stitch dates back to the late 1700’s and is known to many as The Secret Stitch or Zuken. In German the word for socks is “Socken...”. This Secret Stitch-Zuken was used mostly by men. They would use a wooden hook made from the spindle of a chair to latch stitches of heavy wool or rovings together. The men would zuk long socks to wear in their rubber boots so they could do chores in extremely cold weather. The Zuken stitch is windproof and the natural fibre helps keep you warm.
