Original Phentex yarn...anyone remember?
I am searching for the slipper pattern that 'everyone' was knitting / crocheting the slippers at least 20years ago.
The old Phentex yarn.


anyone?

thank you for the links....not quite it...the Phentex yarn...if you had dry hands it would 'catch' on your skin...it was totally like a nylon which lasted forever. When crocheting or knitting it didn't feel like yarn at all. Wonder if the Phentex company would have anything? Thank you will look and see the links again.

Okay, so you want the yarn not the pattern? I misunderstood. You might try eBay.

I may still have it. I will take a look and will get back if I find it. They still sell the yarn in Zellers.

I googled Phentex slippers and got the following

Hope that helps. We still have a supply of the old Phentex yarn at our store here.

Phentex slipper pattern
Hi everyone; I am an avid knitter and crocheter. I do volunteer teaching to ladies of all ages and any men who wants to join us. The men here are too shy to participate. For those of you who wish to have the original slipper pattern for the phentex slippers, I have it. The price on my copy is .20 so it is really old lol. Have a great day. Helen

Old nylon Phentex Yarn
I know this post is old, but I wanted to let you know that when ever I'm home to Hamilton, ON I pick up some of the yarn from the Walmart craft department. They have a pretty big selection.

I also have an old pattern for a pair of slippers that my great-grandmother used to make if you still need one (though from the pictures on one of the links it looks similar).
