They are comfy. My daughter tried them on and liked them, my grandson tried them on and said he would like them in a different yarn. I better get started on more, I need to make at least 5 pairs before Xmas! I told my DD that if my SIL doesn't wear the ones I make for him and nobody in their family wants them that I get them back. I enjoy making things for people but I want them to be things they want and I do want them to get used. I could wear his if he doesn't.

I've been wondering how these would do with Phentex yarn. I wish I could buy it locally but I don't think that's possible.

If you have a Walmart you can order it and pick it up at the store.

Phentex yarn will not work for this pattern, because it doesn't felt.

There are lots of other patterns that work for Phentex yarn, though.
And here's a pattern book for Phentex yarn:

Sandy, these don't need to felt. In fact, they're called Non-Felted Slippers.

Thanks for the link, Claire, I think I'll order a couple balls to play with and see how it works out. There are lots of colors too and that's good.

NP! Not so silly, things like that are so obvious when someone else points them out to me. I need to figure out how many balls it will take for a pair.
