Welcome November! This month, we are excited to focus our charity crafting efforts on the amazing organization Knots Of Love. This amazing California-based organization collects chemo caps, and has donated 271,000+ hats as of 10/30/15!!
This month, we'd love to help them collect as many hats as possible, as the weather is turning colder and people with no (or little) hair will be feeling the chill even more so.
There are a few specific guidelines to follow when making a hat for Knots Of Love -
• Must be new.
• Thinner, seamless, non-lumpy caps are good for sleeping and increased comfort.
• No see-through caps. (Patients don’t like to see their bald heads through the caps.)
• Yarn must be fragrance-free, smoke-free and pet hair-free.
• Must be washable.
• Must be made with yarns from our guidelines/approved yarn list.
You can find their full approved yarn list here, but for ease, here are a few tried and true yarns they approve of: Bernat Satin, Bernat Satin Sport, Caron Simply Soft, Deborah Norville Everyday Worsted, Loops & Threads Charisma Baby, Red Heart Sweet Baby or Red Heart Soft (DO NOT USE Red Heart Super Saver), Berroco Weekend.
When you've got your hats ready to send, please visit their HOW TO DONATE page to get the PDF donation form the request you include in every package.
