Offering a helping hand - the soft and cuddly yarn way
Over the weekend I was despairing at the state of the world, and decided we can do something to help those close at home, together.
Little Sprouts put together boxes of baby gear for those in need - packs go to:
- Families with premature or unwell babies,
- Women escaping from domestic violence,
- Refugees starting a new life in New Zealand,
- Young parents without support networks,
- Families living in an ongoing cycle of poverty and more.
Little Sprouts have crafters in need of supplies to make knitted items for these boxes. So we're putting out the call!
Drop your left over yarn, or yarn you think could go to a better home, in to us. We'll pass it on for you.
It needs to be 100% wool or cotton (or a high wool content) and machine washable. Minimum of 20g if it's a leftover, please. 8ply and 4ply yarns are great for hats, cardigans and booties, so if you have odd ands ends from your projects in these weights, they'd be perfect.
Over the next few weeks we'll also start a KAL for hand knits to donate as well.
Together we can do our part to enable Little Sprouts to bring joy and a an extra hand to those in our communities who need it most.
