I was flipping through some old craft mags from the 1980s and Unger Yarns were ALL OVER the place. I've come back to knitting after a long hiatus, plus I've been living in England for a while now so I wouldn't have realized they disappeared.
Does anyone know what happened? Are they still in existence?
Dicksie, if you did google Unger you probably didn't find much (just a few odd skeins for sale). It's a bit of a mystery. I know they were most likely bought up under JCA, but it's strange that such a well known name could have disappeared like that.
I never did get to make that Angelspun sweater I wanted to. [:((]
The Unger yarns I believe you are referring to are probably the ones imported by William Unger & Company of New York, who imported many yarns from different countries under his imprimatur. The company has apparently stopped importing yarn.
