Charity spotlight – Hats of Comfort

Do you have any yarn in your stash that you don’t plan on using? Whether you got it from a friend or purchased it long ago, perhaps you are hanging on to it simply because you don’t want it to go to waste. Spring is the perfect time to sift through your stash and get rid of unwanted skeins to make room for that new yarn you’ve had your eye on!

Hats of Comfort is one charity that is always happy to receive donated yarn. They provide hats and other handmade items to people who have lost their hair due to illness. To help, you can also donate completed projects made with soft yarn that won’t irritate sensitive skin.

Have you ever donated yarn to charity? It’s a wonderful way to give that stray skein at the bottom of your stash some new life and bring comfort to someone in need at the same time. Do you know of any other charities that accept donated yarn?
