What is the best yarn to use for knitting slippers?
Use good-quality yarn for your slippers. They’ll last a lot longer if you do. My favorite felting yarn for slippers is Brown Sheep Lamb’s Pride Worsted or Bulky, and Cascade 220 (not superwash, which won’t felt).
How much yarn does it take to crochet slippers?
Yardage. Each pair takes around 100 yards of the super bulky yarn. You can make 2 pairs from one skein of Bernat Blanket yarn of 220 yards.

The slippers in this pattern are knit from the toe up using bulky weight yarn or worsted yarn held double. It takes approximately 2 hours to knit a pair. Rated easy or very easy by most Ravelrers.
How do I figure out how much yarn I need?
Formula: (length x width x gauge) / 6 = yards needed. Length and width are in inches and gauge is in stitches per inch. For example, if you’d like a scarf 48″ long and 8″ wide using a worsted weight yarn, (48 x 8 x 5) / 6 = 320 yards. Round up as running out of yarn is the worst!
How many balls of yarn does it take to crochet a single bed blanket?
Count on needing 3-4 skeins of yarn for a lap blanket or a receiving blanket. Double that estimation for a larger blanket. If you are at all unsure about whether you have enough yarn for the project at hand, get an extra skein or two.
