Hello...I'm trying to complete a costume for my daughter and need to find Phentex Slipper and Craft Yarn in white. It's that really rough & tough, multi-stringy nylon/olefin stuff that has been around for at least 40 years! Does anyone know where I can buy it in Canada (Vancouver)? I've tried Michaels and luck. I need at least 200 feet of it.
Any help greatly appreciated....Dance competition is quickly sneaking up on me!!

I don't know if it's the same stuff but If it's the kind you make slippers from I've seen it at dollar stores.

Kickypants, see my response to your post on the KT. That should help.

Kickypants, I see Phentex at Wal-mart. Have you tried a Wal-mart store. I'm sure they will have it.
I live in Northwestern Ontario.

My mother was cleaning out her closet and going through her stash of yarn and came across quite a few balls of unopened and partial balls of the phentex yarn. There were several balls of white and a few other colours. If you still need some let me know.

I've always been able to find Phentex at my local Zellers store. (I'm in Nova Scotia.) Mind you, it is tucked down near the bottom of a shelf, almost unnoticeable.

The plastic covering around the balls of "yarn" disguises the fact that it is the dreaded Phentex. (As a child, I was taught to make the sign of a cross to ward off the evil that was Phentex.)
